Restart it manually from Services. Go to Start > Run, type in:


and click OK. Scroll down to the Print Spooler entry, Start it and set it's Startup type to Automatic.

You can access the Run Box by pressing the Windows key + R. Or you can have it permanently on the Start Menu if you right-click the Start button, choose Properties, Click the Customise button beside the Start Menu selection, scroll down and tick the Run Command. Click OK and OK to exit.
