Being that saving to your desktop is not working, I'm thinking you may have a storage issue? Could you HD be close to full?

Or perhaps permissions on the drive are messed up?

drive not full

by chrispc616 In reply to Hmph

i have 10 gig free on my local c drive, and if i right click and create a text file and can store it on the desktop and also delete it so permisions should be good specially since im logged into administrator, but the more serious question was about the print spooler if i go to add a printer and shuts down the spooler and then i have to start it back up???

Delete the printer drivers

by LarryD4 In reply to drive not full

If you can, get rid of all unused print drivers installed on the server.

I have had similar issues and HP with their "Universal Printer Dirvers" have been causing a lot of issues on my servers. So we moved PCL 5 and 6 off of them and are now sticking to PS only.
