Printers disappear from my Windows Vista Home premium Laptop
Ok I have a Windows Vista Home Premium HP laptop conneting to a HP Desktop via a wireless network. I have an HP 1300 and Kodak AIO 5500 connected to the desktop. I originally had trouble adding printers to the laptop see my other post (http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vistanetworking/thread/1c2e3899-124d-4e6f-a894-718c57aabc26)
finally got the printers to add. I had not used my laptop in a while and needed to add a new printer to the laptop so went to do so and my printers had disappeared! When I went to reconnect them I had the same problem as before! Please help with getting printers
set up and making sure they don't disappear.
any help woul be appreciated.

Ok I finally got around to trying this solution. I had not wanted to reboot the system after having spent so long getting the printers to show up. Anyway a system update made it necessary. I tried the do what you suggested with the print spooler. It had
already been on automatic. But i tried to change it and reboot but my printers were still gone. when I try to add the printers I get an error saying that access is denied to the printer though it can be seen on the network. all other computers running xp and
vista business can connect to the printer on the desktop and they do not disappear. The only computer to have a problem is my vista home premium laptop.
