Why does my printer spooler keep playing about

By Judeal ·
I use 32 bit Vista, it has been ok but recently my printers disappeared and I got printer spooler error. I went into services restarted it making sure that rpc is started (automatic),but as soon I come out of control panel it de-activates itself. This has been oing on and on. What can I do I can't print.

Check your spooler folder for orphans.

With the print spooler service off, go to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers folder and delete out any files there. They have a .spl and .shd extension. I run in to this problem fairly often. Once deleted restart your spooler service.
