  3. ???? This has nothing to do with Vista. The Print Spooler service should
    start automatically. Check the service in services.msc. It should be set
    to "Automatic". If it's not set, change it. It if *IS* set then you have
    a printer driver problem. Check the event logs for errors indicating the
    service was stopped. See if anything happened just before.

    The print spooler is stopped. Rebooting does not restart it.
    I am looking further into documentation.

    Thank you for the tip.
