Print Spooler not Starting

If you have any issues with the Print Spooler not starting or staying started than try this

Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS

Rename any files in there to .old or move to another folder called printers.old

Then restart the Print spool services

Also you could have a corrupted registry entry for the Print provider

Double check that here

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\PRINT\

Delete any links that aren’t the default folders
Defaults are: LanMan Print Services and Internet print provider
