Hi there, back again! Followed instructions via hyperlink and edited the registry successfully, or so I thought! Printed the test page and 1 MSWord page and thought everything ok, then the same error message came up!! Back to square one! Any more ideas please? My printer shows up in control panel - printers but I tried to print web page but error; "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Print Spooler Service is not running" came up. I don't know if this is relevant but I have recently had NTL Broadband installed and the problem has only arisen since then!

I haven't seen your original post. If you open up your printers properties is the printer actually set to Spool print jobs. From the message you're getting it doesn't sound like it is.

Printer is set to spool print jobs. I have managed to print out a couple of test pages, MSWord pages and Wordpad pages but intermittent Print spooler error messages persist!

Is the printer shared on a network?

I only have one pc, maybe broadband software installation settings have affected this somehow as probs only occurred after that? How can I find out if the settings are incorrect? (please)

Are there two printers shown in "printers and faxes" Delete them all and reinstall.

This happend to me the other day with my Lexmark i acciddently copied my printer in "printer and faxes" and word etc said there was no printer installed.

Went to reinstall and up poped the message you were recieving...

Anyway deleting the two copies and reinstalling fixed it.

Tried that previously, but the problem persists. I've found a way round it; right-click my computer, manage, services and applications, services, print spooler-start the service. This works short-term but problem still comes back eventually.
