Printer Spoolsv.exe Error

Hello Don, the XP CD is the one you'll need. First you need to put your XP CD in to your CD drive and then restart your PC and go into your bios settings, usually by pressing F2 when the computer is booting up. Once you're in, you need to change the boot priority so that it is set to boot from your CD drive first.

When you've done this, select the 'save settings and exit' option and your PC will restart.

If everything is going well you will see a small message at the top of the screen instructing you to press any key to boot from CD, press any key you like.

Next you will see windows starting, give it a few minutes to load everything in. Once loading is complete you should see an option to repair a windows installation by pressing 'R'. This will load up the windows recovery console.

When it's loaded you will be asked which installation you would like to log on to. Press the appropriate number and enter your password, if you haven't set a password that you use to log on then just press enter.

When you done all this you need to type: CHKDSK /R. This will start a disk check and repair\replace any corrupt windows files ( and hopefully the one we're after! ).

When the disk check is complete, take note if any errors were fixed.

Did you try just uninstalling the printers instead of removing the drivers?

Let me know how you get on
