Win. XP Pro. On running a 'wipe-over' with the O.S. twice still have a print spooler problem:- "Spooler SubSystem App has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. szAppName : spoolsv.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.0 szModName : ntdll.dll szModVer : 5.1.2600.1106 offset : 0001aa5f C:\DOCUME~1\Lee\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1A.tmp.dir00\spoolsv.exe.mdmp C:\DOCUME~1\Lee\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1A.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt " When going to 'Add Printer ' PC states "Operation could not be completed". I looked on the net tried several thins like:- Starting the print spooler Running the check file command via the Windows CD Clearing out any old printer drivers (Canon i965) Unplugging the printer via the usb Running an registry correction prog. Has anyone had this problem and found a fix? Windows Restore is not an option as with a fresh O.S it removed all my previous settings. Thanks.
Given that excellent prog a try and deleted all that I know I'm safe deleting. Still got a spooler problem. Tried another 'trawl' of the net and found several registry progs that stated they would 'fix' spooler problem faults. They found several hundreds of faults that requires a fee to fix. Strangely I have a paid version of System Mechanic v.6 that found no errors? Any more things that might prove to be a cure?
