- I purchased and installed Windows 7 two days ago and began installing hardware and software. Some time after trying to install a web cam that is a few years old I discovered that my printer would not work and all attempts to reinstall or reconfigure
it failed. The error message says " Print spooler not running" and resetting it to start in Administrative Tools - Services did not work. Is it possible to reinstall the print spooler or repair it without loosing everything else I have reinstalled?
