The print spooler service is not running. You may have to manually startit and set it to start automatically. Here's how to do it:
Click "start"
"control panel"
"Administration tools"
double click "services"

look in the list for "print spooler"
double-click it to open the properties
in the general tab look to see if the startup type is automatic, if not change it to automatic
click the start button to start the service
