I can't install my printer or print because the Print Spooler service is not running. One of the error messages says a running associated file is needed. How is that provided?

Start>Run >type services.msc
See if service is started and automatic.
If U double click it U can change that.
Also see dependencies. Some services may also need to be started. Just look on dependecies tab to see service name and start them.

:hello:

Thanks for responding. Unfortuneately after doing these things the current "bottom line" is "Services" . . . "Could not start the Print Spooler on Local Computer." . . . "Error 12: The access code is invalid."

So, 1) What is "access code"? - 2) Why is it invalid? 3) How is a valid access code supplied? In the long list of Services, including dependencies, the Print Spooler service is the only one found with this problem -- if knowing that may offer a clue.
Cheers! edro_67
