Original title: Windows 7: Print spooler fails, can't print with printers, can't re-install drivers for printers, can't add a printer. Basically everything for printers is no more.
This all started after the lates batch of May Windows 7 fixes were automatically installed.
Ran the MS 'Fix-it' but it was unsucessful; could do no more than stop and re-start the spooler service.
Tried using services to start, stop the spooler service without any luck. Shutdown the machine, rebooted numerous times, have gone back to previous restore point from a month ago.
Downloaded drivers to re-install but half way through the installation it barps - printer spooler stopped and so it aborts installing the driver.
