My printer spooler has been stopped from running on my PC. How can I re-activate it? Does using ' Regscrub XP ' have anything to do with this ? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for all the help so far. Rossi#1 - followerd all the steps and I now have a picture of a printer in the bottom left hand corner and when I hover over it it says 2 documents pending.

Found a dell forum that advised I tick Lexbce server in the services when going through msconfig. Is this right?

Delete the two documents pending by clicking on the icon (I assume you still have the files) and attempt to print them again.
