spoolsv.exe and Win2K SP1

By ramsys ·
I have unsuccesfully tried loading SP1 to my Win2K Professional workstation. It always comes up with the message that the spooler service must be running in order to load SP1.
For some reason the spooler service loads at startup but unloads soon after. What's going on and what should I do?

The error message is reported because the Spooler Service has not been started or has failed. The Spooler Service can be started in the Control Panel, in Services: click the Startup button and make it Automatic for automatic startup for the next restart. In Windows 2000, the Print Spooler Service can be started in Administrative Tools, Services. Double-click the Printer Spooler service and change the Startup Type to Automatic.

Startup Type is already automatic for the spooler, but it does not stay loaded long enough for the SP1 to finish.
