Printer spooler stops working

Specs: Windows 7, 32
I have a HP pavilon that I recently updated to windows 7. My HP laser jet cm1312 was working fine until a recent windows update. I keep recieving and error message that the print spooler is not running. I have done all fixes suggested. Went into services and set to automatic and set dependencies as well. I uninstalled my driver and now I can not reinstall any printer driver old or updated version for windows 7. Still receive printer spooler not running. I have to reset each time. And it repeats the same error. I have scaned Malware and Superanti Virus..

Make sure you ahve the Windows 7 disk handy.
Start button, type cmd in the search box, cmd will show in the list above. Right click and run as administrator.
In the black box type sfc /scannow. If a file is missing or different, it will ask for the disk to replace the files. Try this then come back.
