Print spooler service is not running?

  santa2 20:48 22 Aug 2006

Wireless network setup and running, except the shared printer icon on laptop says 'unable to connect' and in trying to open properties it says 'the print spooler service is not running'.
Can anyone help?

Hmmmm can't see why it wouldn't be, but if it really isn't running go to (assuming windows xp)

Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services

Look for "Print Spooler" service, right click and pick start if it isn't running. I suspect it is running and the problem is different one, but lets start with this.
