Click Start / Run and type in services.msc
Search the services for spooler and check whether it's disabled.
If it's not, check the event viewer for any hint on why it's aborted.

If that does not work (I had this problem recently on a computer I just fixed and services said (roughly) spooler could not start because the associated service group had a problem), scan for viruses, scan again with Malwarebytes (just to be sure), then restart in safe mode and do a system restore from there (you may need to go back before any recent Windows updates). If that does not work (it should), do a repair from install disk, repair disk, or recovery partition. Restart and you should be fine.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
