Cant add printer - Print Spooler not running error
I have a HP desktop running Vista 32bit. The printer has stopped working. The printer is fine and so is the USB cable. I have tried a few USB ports that work with other devices. I tried reinstalling driver - I get the popup that driver installs correctly and device is ready to use
however no printer shows up under PRINTERS. If I go Control Panel > printers the pane is empty!
Trying to ADD a printer I get error
I can't reinstall the OS as the system controls a medical machine and the installed application is not easily recovered. System Restore is not enabled either!
