I have four pc's networked to my hp deskjet f4180 three print perfectly to it and the fourth comes up with message unable to display pronter properties print spooler is not running. I have stopped and started the spooler in services and set it to automatic but still the same message the printer also works for WePrint so I can only imagine the problem lies with this one particular pc which is running XP sp2. any ideas.

If you follow that link and carry out the steps it scans the pc but then wants you to buy the software

Sounds like the print spooler file might be corrupt. Replacing that might resolve it

should be found in C:\Windows\System32\spoolsv.exe

take an copy from an working machine and copy it over to the non working machine.
