Windows 10: Print Spooler

    Print Spooler


    My update to Windows 10 from Windows 7 went without problems but none of the three printers attached to my computer worked and I have been struggling with the problem over the last two weeks. There is another long thread "Can't connect to Printer" which has not produced a solution.
    One solution seemed to be to delete the printers and then Add. Problem is they won't delete - just get a notation "No driver available". If you try to Add a printer you get "Windows cannot Add a Printer because the Print Spooler is turned off - Restart it.
    If you go to Services/Print Spooler/Properties you find that the Spooler is indeed stopped. There is a Start button and a space for Start Parameters. I don't know what any parameters would be but if you press Start without any, you get an error Message 0x70080057 "Wrong Parameters".
    A search in Google for this error produces a flood of items. It seems too be a very common error ! I didn't find anything helpful.
    Does anyone know how to restart Print Spooler ?

    I have had this situation and it seems to come and go. The temporary solution is to open a command prompt as administrator and type in:

    Net Start "Print Spooler"

    If the spooler is running and you want to bounce it type:

    Net stop "Print Spooler"
    Net start "Print Spooler"


    ​I haven't yet come across a permanent fix.

    Thanks for your answer. The problem seems to have solved itself in the meantime but may recur, so I am pleased to have your advice.

    No. I gave up and went back to Windows 7.
