    I have found this possible solution;
    This may also happen if the dependency services for Print spooler are not running. To resolve this issue, use the following procedure:
    a. Click Start and Type Services in Start search and Press Enter.
    b. In Services, right-click Print Spooler and then click Properties.
    c. Click the Dependencies tab. The first box lists all of the system services that must be running for Print Spooler to start. These are the dependencies.
    d. Make a note of each service, click OK and then start each service upon which Print Spooler is dependent, if the service is not already started. If a service was not started, right-click it, click Properties and then confirm that the Startup type is Automatic.
