Print Spooler not running.
Go to Start > My Computer > C drive > Windows folder > System32 folder > Spool folder > Printers folder. Then delete the contents of the Printers folder.
Close that, then go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and open it. Startup type: Automatic, click on "Start", click Apply & then OK.

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic
