    This morning while trying to print a document I received the following
    message:"Spooler sub system app has stopped working"When I went to
    printers,there are none listed(I have 2)I have no idea where this application
    is located,I looked in config file but didnt see it.I assume that is why no
    printer is shown.I had updated new drivers for both printers and both were
    working Thurs.I did a restore point to 36 hours ago with no luck,and windows
    updated are set to auto Could someone inform me what to do.
    Thank you

  2. Click on the Start button and type Services in the Start Search box.
    In the Services window, scroll down to "Print Spooler". Right-click
    on it and select Properties and then Stop. Set the service to Automatic
    and then Start the service.
