see if this works.

> Start>Run>type NET START SPOOLER and press OK
> Start Printer Spooler

How did this happen? That may kick back an error, but try it.

Microsoft has an automatic fix it tool you can run....I have actually found these to work for many problems.

I tryed the different fix it sights out there before I did the post. It came back saying it detected a problem with the print spooler but could not fix. I got a message stating "does not exist as an installed service"
