    Printer Spooler subsystem Failure

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    For the last 2 weeks, I have been unable to print. The print spooler subsystem has failed and removed all the printers. I restart the print spooler and almost as fast it fails. I tried multiple approaches from the internet. BUT THE FOLLOWING ONE WORKED. However it made me nervous. But I wanted to share it with others out there. Seemed that the Lexmark printer I added to my Vista machine with a vista driver really really messed things up. Reboots, system restores, nothing worked except for theis microsoft article fix. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324757
    So for others tearing their hair out this is what worked for me
