go to my computer and rt click then manage. Select services and apps then services. Find the spoller process. Stop and restart it.

If it has a port, did you try to remove the port first?

Found this:

Go to the services and stop the Print Spooler.
Delete all files in the C:\windows\system32\spool\printers directory (you
will probably find you have 2 files in here)
Go back to the services and start the Print Spooler
