    Default Print Spooler

    I attempted to print and there was a windows print error (I didnt note it),
    then when I went into the printers, there were none there. I attempted to
    click "Add Printer" and got a message stating that the spooler isnt started
    and recommended I restart, and after restarting nothing changed. I checked
    Services and saw print spooler was off, and the description was this jumbled
    mess: ·þÎñÃèÊö.
    I changed the spooler to automatic start and then clicked start, and now my
    printers are back. Anyone have an idea whats going on and why the
    description is ·þÎñÃèÊö?

    Default

    Run registry editor and navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Spooler

    and check the value to Description (REG_SZ) string value.
    It may contain such crap textual information....edit it.

    Thanks, I have edited the description to read Print Spooler.
    Do you have any idea what would shut off this service?
