Lost Printer

I have tried to print something today only to find that a message pops up to say that I have to install a printer. (It's been there for months and working normally). However, when I try to add a new printer I get a message "Printer operation cannot continue due to lack of resources. The print subsystem is unavailable" In control panel I have no printer shown. I can't understand what has happened here. Can anyone help me please?

If you have XP I would start by doing a system restore to when you know all was well

Spooky, I thought I would try a re-boot and lo and behold, my printer now shows up under 'printers' in control panel, and works!! I don't think I will ever understand the mysteries of the PC.....

Time after time over the years I have found it better to restart from scratch, than struggle when Windows gets silly.
