Printing - Spooler subsystem app

  MaxUpload 13:06 24 Feb 2009

All of a sudden I'm getting an error appearing :

"Spooler subsystem app has encountered a problem and needs to close"

Cannot print and no printer shows in the control panel folder.

Have uninstalled the printer drivers,have searched for and cleaned all references to the printer in the registry and windows but still getting the error.

Followed to the letter the "solution" offered by Micro$oft - click here - but the error still appears.

Any help or suggestions to overcome this problem would be appreciated.

I won't be available to answer any observations until tonight.

help if you let us know what operating system your using and specs of your computer and may be the specs of your printer.

If no printer shows in Control Panel then you need to install one.
