Hi

Did you update your copy of Windows through WindowsUpdate? What type of printer are you trying to install? Are you trying to connect a local or network printer? Have you verified that your copy of WinXP Pro is in good working order?

Spooler app include most printers and also the drivers to run windows,l would recommend a fresh install,but l would do a little more reading up on the way the spooler app affects the install of windows.
