Im having a problem with my printer. There are no printers listed in the
Printers and Faxes window. In msconfig under serices, Print Spooling is
listed as stopped and the box is checked. In services under Admin Toos,
Print Spooling is listed as automatic.

Restarting does nothing.

any ideas?

If you have just attempted to install a printer, then follow the user guide
and do it by the letter according to the manufacturer's instructions.

If an existing printer is no longer listed, then reinstall it.

Windows will still show all printers for which drivers are installed, even
when the printer is switched off or unplugged from the USB or Printer Port.

I tried that and i get the error message "Printer Spool has stopped". This is
why i was looking into the services in msconfig and Admin Tools.
