Often, but not always, the symptoms you describe are caused by a corrupt print job stuck in the queue or a damaged printer driver.  However before you clean things up, on general principles, that you can download, install, update and run full scans with each of these two free programs:

AntiMailware MalwareBytes
SUPERAntiSpyware

Do not operate the two scans simultaneously.  Each will take a long time, so start it and then go do something else for a while.

Cleaning of printers

NOTE: If after completing step has the print spooler is not always running after you launched the command "net start spooler", you will not be able to follow all the steps in "First Article".  Use of the special procedure for printers Lexmark described below and follow in its first Article.  If still no joy, use the alternative method that is linked below.

A. Clean on print jobs pending

  • Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
  • Type the following in the black command prompt window, and then press ENTER after each line

net stop spooler
del/q '% windir%\system32\spool\PRINTERS\*.* '.
net start spooler
output

B. clean the old printer drivers and install the latest drivers by using the directions in One Article.

A special procedure for computers that have or had a Lexmark or Dell-badged Lexmark printer.

Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)

Type the following in the black command prompt window and press enter

dependent on the spooler of sc config = RPCSS
output

Note that there is no space before the =

If you want to use a Lexmark or Dell-badged Lexmark printer after having done the above, you will need to reinstall it.

  • Print spooler does not. Unable to use printer

    Cannot print.  Cannot add a printer.  Can't download new drivers.  C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOLSV. EXE is a program that does not work.

    Quote from: http://snipurl.com/1mdayq [www_eventid_net]

    From a newsgroup post: "it seems that the print spooler does not and that it was impossible (or not configured to) restart itself.» When the print spooler does not work, printers will be not visible in the Printers folder, and you will not be able to add a new printer. A number of things could cause the print spooler to fail. It's corrupt print jobs, incompatible or problematic printer drivers or port monitors, corrupted file or disc and even other applications or processes interfering with the spooler in memory. If you try to manually restart the print spooler and it fails immediately, he may be trying to process a print job corrupted after the start. It is a common cause for the print spooler failures that occur immediately. If the print spooler starts and printing features returns for a while before a failure once again, then a monitor driver or the port is probably the cause of the problem.

Once the existing spool files have been deleted, try to restart the print spooler again to see if it works normally.

  • Printer spooler does not work for a single user on the network printer

    original title: very different printer problem

    I have a HP deskjet printer shared from a PC on the network.
    I was informed of a single person could not access error poped by saying "printer spooler does not work.
    I went to the services and made sure it was infact running and rebooted to be sure also restarted the RPC services as it is addictive
    Still, the user cannot print to the printer. I took the computer that has been seen issues and hung where fixed my PC and I am able to connect and print!

    If I move my computer witch would allow me to print before there where his computer is my computer prompt same error

    My idea is - what some are how a network issue, but the user can still access drives network, internet and other printers on the network

    Just not this printer

    The computer on the share is is a windows xp sp2 workstation

    The computer with the issue is any system I plug its cable Ethernet (XP anyway) I have not tried with a windows machine 7.

    My hypothesis is a bad Ethernet cable? I'm quite lost with this question at this stage.

    My next step is to hang the printer until a print area and assign an IP address and finish with the share.

    (Still not sure if it would help or not)

    Any advice is welcome thanks

    It turned out to be a bad switch. I don't understand why it did not work. All the computers had no problems other than the present even that if I swapped the ports it has made a difference.

    Hung new switch and all computers works fine now.

  • I'm unable to install a printer - print spooler does not

    I have a problem with the PC.  No printer is displayed in the Control Panel printer page. When I try to add a printer the message tells me that the print spooler does not work.  Can I also book error code: "error 0x000006e". I tried all the usual bugs without success.  Gives the print spooler to think it's on; I have reset several times and it shows, but the message I get when trying to add a printer says that it does not work.  I have attached the sfc/scannow process found no corrupt files. I tried a 'restoration' without success.

    The laptop can find the printer, a Canon Pixma MP 550 and it works well but the PC just cannot find all printers in the control panel or through different programs (WORD, etc.) and will not let me add a few.  The home network seems fine and both recognize each other and I can access files on the other computer.  But on the PC, there is no printer on the network.

    Grateful for the advice.  All the usual bugs have been tried.

    Also, I tried the canon Pixma MP 550 "My Canon" routine Diagnostics.  It did not find the printer even when it is plugged directly into the PCUSB slot.  This could be a problem of LPT 1?  So, I don't know how to access the LPT to reconfigure.

    I also opened OUTLOOK and WORD and tried to add a printer in this way, but I get the message: "the Active Domain Services are currently unavailable.

    Grateful for any help here.

  • Windows 7 printer spooler does not start

    just my printer spooler does not start in Windows 7.  I received a message that the spooler wasn't running when I tried to use it today.  I used the printer for a few days. "net start spooler" fails from the administrator command prompt.  I checked that the CPP is running.

    I installed SP 1 yesterday with success, but I went back to the restore point, but still, the spooler does not start.

    The system acts as the spooler is missing.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Thank you

    I would like to check the status of the Services.

    Click on the Start button and select Control Panel, administrative tools, Services. Locate bridge end RPC Mapper in the list. Check that he started and that the startup type is automatic. If it is not set to automatic, right-click and select Properties, general tab. There is a box after the startup type. The options are available in a menu drop-down by clicking on the down arrow to the right of the box. Make the change and click apply and then click OK. Restart the computer and verify if it has started.

    Original title: printer

    Hello

    The print spooler is the mechanism that will interface between your application and the printer and coils (sends) the print job to the printer. It should start automatically when you start your machine. So, restart your computer and try again. I suspect that the real problem is to find why the print spooler has stopped in the first place.

    After trying again, see what happens and if your print spooler stops again, the real work will begin.

    Do you have (and recently uninstall) a Lexmark printer?  If not, or if the procedure below does not for you, please post back with the complete error message.

    Lexmark printer drivers change structure dependence, so if you uninstall one, you have to fix things as follows:

    1 open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
    2 type the following command and press ENTER after each line.  Note that in the second line, there is a space after the = not before

    net stop spooler

    A print spooler is software that temporarily stores the disk printing hard or in memory until the printer is ready to print.

    If you were expecting an abnormally long time to print a document, or if you see an error message about the print spooler, you may have to restart the spooler to print on your computer.

    To restart the spooler, the simplest method is to save your work and restart the computer. Alternatively, you can try the following steps:

    To restart the print spooler service

    1. You must be logged on as administrator to perform these steps.

    2. Click Start, type: services , then press on enter on your keyboard

    3. Double-click Services.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  • Spoolsv.exe - local print spooler does not start

    Dear all

    My local print spooler will not start. After a recent Windows update all my devices when removed, which was a printer. I run the malware and anti spyware software on my PC, remove no matter what malware/spyware, but I can not yet install the printer I have.

    The message I get is "Windows cannot add a printer. The spools of local printer service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. I tried to restart the spooler but this does not work, I get an error 1068. I rebooted the machine several times; all to nothing does not. The 'service' shows 2 HTTP and RPC dependencies. My understanding is that the only dependency should be the PRC, but I can't change the file. Short to restore PC to factory settings and start all over again, I'm lost. Is there anything else I can try before taking this reconstruction?

    Your

    Doug

    At a prompt (run as administrator), run the following:

    dependent on the spooler of sc config = RPCSS

    Note the space between = and RPCSS.

    This removes any dependencies on the spooler and restore the default RPCSS dependence.

    One of the problems with viruses and malware is that there is no real way to know what exactly it is they changed on your system, the more benign virus may be easy to remove but never pests morphing and a constant flow of new pests pushed one never knows how a machine is compromised.  After the withdrawal of an infection, you should always ask yourself if you can really trust the machine, if you don't know if the answer is no, the only course of action is to flatten and rebuild the machine.   Disk imaging/cloning utilities are perfect for this, they can help you get your machine running in a minimum of time and upward.
