NT 4.0 SP5 - Spooler Service problem

By bbuechler ·
No matter what I try, I cannot get the Spooler service to start automatically. It's set to automatically, but never starts. Normal users do not have the access permissions to start services, and even if I remotely start it (or login myself and startit), when I logout and let the user login, the service is no longer started (although it still says Automatic). I realize this might be an easy fix, but I'm probably overlooking it. Please help.

IF the service pak doesn't do it:

1. check the script to make sure it doesn't have net commands or references to bat files that may be controlling it.

2. Try starting it from a user's command prompt, if that doesn't work try starting it with the net start command with the administrator parameters.

Turned out to be a rights issue.
