No print spooler=no printer

Switched PC on, typed a letter and on trying to print it find neither printer is connected. Trying to add one from the control panel I get the message "The print spooler service is not running".

PC is XP Home. main printer is Epson R220.

Why has this happened and more importantly how do I get it running again?

go to RUN and enter services.msc
Scroll down until you find your printer and set to auto.

Terry, Many thanks. It was already set to automatic but I clicked on Start and it's now running.

PC Advisor forum to the rescue once again.
