Hi Brian,

It sounds like we are having the same problem (see my entry on Service
Control Manager). If I try to manually restart this service while logged on
as a user, I get an error 5: Access Denied.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi Cari,

I tried this, but it didn't work either. Any other ideas?

Did you try a System File Check?

From the Command Prompt, type:

sfc /scannow
(note space between c and /)

yes, i am not sure of what that resulted in. Using a free registry
checker it found hundred's of registry errors. Should I invest in
fixing them first?

When logged on as an administrator, I am able to start the servicei with a
net start spooler command. When logged on as a user, this does not work and I
get an access denied error 5. The only way to get the user to printer is to
(a) make them part of at least the power users group so that they can run the
net start command themselves (not very good for an OS such as XP) or (b)
connect to the computer management mmc to start the service as an
administrator. Option (b) is a bit iffy and might need the command to be run
locally.

I found that I had message -Print spooler service is not running-Before
upgrading the SP2.

After running Nortons it detected an unknown virus which I isolated and
removed.

Then having searched web and earlier downloaded windows resources kit
ran cleanspl.exe.

This fixed problem. But then required loading all print drivers!

Until I had isolated virus and removed it, the virus had earlier
stopped cleanspl.exe working.
