    and i got that window:
    "Windows can't open Add Printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine"

    now i've been in a lot of forums this day.
    all about stop and start the spooler service in the services, (that was not in the services).
    or make on log on tab in service "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)". in Methud 2 to be local bat that option was disable (even on safe mode).

    on Methud 3 there the reg edit -
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Spooler
    bat the Spooler does not exist.

    there is a "Fix it" on the web - Fix it 50126
    bat that works only for XP.

      Hi,

      Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

      In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

      Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

      Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

      Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

      Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

      Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

      The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

        all about stop and start the spooler service in the services, (that was not in the services).
        The exact display name of the service in services.msc is "Print Spooler".

        To get more information about the error can you please do the following,

        Open the eventviewer and look at the Service events for Spooler Errors. Post here the Event ID(s) and other details of the event.

        additionally,
        run CMD.exe and then past the below command lines in this order on the command prompt:
        Code:
        >%temp%.\$ 2>&1 reg.exe query HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Spooler
        >>%temp%.\$ 2>&1 (echo.&dir /Q /A "%systemroot%\system32\spoolsv.exe"|find /i "spoolsv.exe") 
        >>%temp%.\$ 2>&1 sc.exe queryex spooler
        >>%temp%.\$ 2>&1 sc.exe qc spooler&&start notepad %temp%.\$
