    Your repair tool fixed the print spooler error but I still cannot install my printer. I tried wireless, USB, and wired. I’ve been using this printer for six months just fine so I’m assuming a windows 10 update screwed something up.

    1. Techexpert says

      Do uninstall all the printer driver from the control panel and then re-install the printer using windows 10 driver. You can download the Windows 10 driver from printer’s official website.

  25. Riki says

    That made it worse! Now I cannot see the printer at all, the loading circle just spins continually.

    1. Techexpert says

      Do reboot your computer in safe mode and then re-run our tool, it should work. If won’t work then please let us know again.

    This is the second time I have had the “Print spooler error 1068. The previous time a techie friend of mine found a few lines of code that I had to enter to have my printer working again.

    This time I decided to look for a solution myself and was fortunate to happen upon the solutions offered by http://www.techsupportall.com . The Print spooler repair tool seemed too easy, but I had nothing to lose, and so decided to give it a shot before attempting any of the more complicated solutions found on other sites.

    This fixit tool worked brilliantly for me on my old XP Professional computer. My faithful Lexmark 1180 all in one packed up last Thurs and I have been trying to load the software for a new Epson 342, unsuccessfully. I resorted to trying to connect up an old Lexmark 730 inkjet, when I encountered this problem. At least I now have a printer that works and I will try again to load the driver for the Epsom. I just want the Epsom hard wired, not Wi-fi. I think the problem occurred when downloading the Epson Set-up software. Hope it does not happen again, but if it does I now know how to fix it. Many , Many Thanks and I would like to leave a small donation for your help.

  48. A Chapple says

    A few days ago the big Windows 10 update at last managed to finish itself rather than getting to 99% and saying it couldn’t complete. Firefox would not open and my printer would not connect. A day later another Windows 10 update. Firefox now opens but windows still tells me the active directory domain service is unavailable and Windows Troubleshoot unhelpfully tells me the spooler is not running but can’t fix it. So much for Microsoft – you can see why people prefer Apple!
    A query to Google brings up various registry manipulations which I’m not to keen to try. I also noticed your suggested program to deal with the matter. I downloaded it, checked it with my virus checker, could find no warnings about the program via Google and therefore ran it. I now seem to have a working printer again.
    Many thanks – I have left a donation. I never seemed to have these problems with my many earlier Windows

    LIFESAVER! I am a MAC person, but there are certain programs I use for schooling that require the use of windows. I use my husbands HP with windows 10 to do my homework, but it doesn’t connect to the printer. It hasn’t connected to the printer for 3-4 years (at least). We spent numerous hours trying to do troubleshooting, working with tech support and repairs to no avail. So it sat at a standstill until a few weeks ago when I started using the computer again. I got tired of having to print with other computers, so I went digging for solutions again and behold I found you! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! You’re a lifesaver!!!!

  87. David Powell says

    My wife and I were both having problems with printing. Each time the printer (HP) would balk at taking new print jobs and frequently would print an old print job a second time. I went through the process of turning off the print spooler and emptying the contents in System 32–Spool–Printer–files. Often I would still be unable to delete all files because of the printfilterpipelinesvc. I read a lot about that and felt that it was not a bad Trojan file–had the right amount of data, etc. Nonetheless, it was an annoying problem. I finally found this print spooler tool and checked to see if it is trustworthy and downloaded it on both of our laptops. Eureka! The problems seem to be solved with a great savings of time. Thank you for this fix.

  88. sagari says

    do print job stuck at print queue count in your program ?

    btw what the cause for print job always stuck at print queue ?

    thanks ?

    1. Techexpert says

      Because printer doesn’t print the job that’s why jobs are stuck in print queue. Do deep restart your printer and then try again to print.

      1. sagari says

        but, my other computer can do a print job without a problem to the same printer…

        just with this computer can’t do a print job and always stuck after print 1 document. because the print job not disappear from the print queue..

        thanks for the reply.
        sorry for my bad english.

  91. Graeme says

    Your tool has not fixed my problem. Basically every time I restart my computer the print spooler stops running. It is easily re-set manually, but as I said it stops at every re-start. I have run your tool many times both with the printer installed and printer removed, drivers installed and drivers removed etc etc. Same result every time computer re-start spooler stops. If you have any further ideas I would appreciate it.

    1. Techexpert says

      Thank you for contacting us about this matter. We’ll help you with this.

      As you said there is no problem in starting print spooler service manually, it means there is no problem in your print spooler service. But your print spooler service still stopped on restart the PC. It seems one of your computer startup application or its “.dll” file is making conflicting with your print spooler serive and makes it stopped. So, what you need to do is you have to find out that applciation or its “.dll” file and take an appropriate action on that. We’ll help you with this. We are giving you an article, follow article’s step 8 and report us back with the faulty file name and location then we’ll help you further.

  121. griffins says

    wow!! the software was of great help to me. Thanks

  122. Larissa says

    ok do you mean the computers event viewer logs? I have noticed there are a few errors in there saying the following: Windows cannot load classes registry file.
    DETAIL – The configuration registry database is corrupt.
    Could this have anything to do with it? It doesn’t seem to happen at the same time as the print spooler crashing. In fact I cannot see any logs from other applications that occured at the same time. Where should I be looking: Windows Logs/System or Windows Logs/Application?

    1. Techexpert says

      You should go to “Windows Logs/Application” location for error logs. There must have listed the error logs of your print spooler crashing. Could you please provide me its screenshot at info@techsupportall.com so that we can check that and give you further solution.

  123. amanda says

    Thank you very much…. I can now print after repairing the printing spool problem..

    Appreciated it so muchhh

    Print Spooler

    1. Techexpert says

      This error logs doesn’t show the “Faulty path” or faulty program name, normally the error log shows faulty path. Without faulty path we can’t find out the main cause of this issue.
      Do two steps and let me know.
      1. Run our tool in safemode (Print spooler repair tool)
      2. Do manual steps to repair print spooler service manually. Here is the link: Print Spooler Repair Tool.
      Let us know again if this trick doesn’t work.

      1. Larissa says

        I tried what you said but it’s still not working

        1. Techexpert says

          Ok, No problem, we’ll help you to fix this issue.
          You need follow my next instructions and give me the result what happens.
          1. Open Services page
          2. Find ‘Print Spooler’ service and do double click on it and then click on start button there.
          Please let me know if you get any error message while doing this and its status. After that I can give you further steps.

          1. Larissa says

            ok I can start it but then it terminates after less than 1 minute. It is not giving me any error message

          2. Techexpert says

            It means any third party application of any system application is crashing printer spooler service. Note down the time when your print spooler crashes. And check computer’s even viewer logs, there must be a log at that time which will show you the main cause of the crashing. And let us know the even logs at info@techsupportall.com then we’ll give you further solution.

  125. Larissa says

    Hello, I have tried all of your suggestions and somehow I still have an error. I ran the scan through command prompt and the results came back saying windows could not fix all errors. I have the log files. Am I able to send them to you to check for me please?

    Windows 10 / HP Deskjet F300 Series

    I’ve tried everything and anything for the last 6 hours straight but nothing worked.
    THIS IS THE ONLY TOOL THAT WORKED and actually helped me!
    Other fix suggestions were so cumbersome, so many instructions BUT they didn’t work in the end.
    On the other hand, all I needed to do was install this tool and it did all the job!
    Thank you sooooo much!

  136. Troy says

    Great tool, thankyou fixed my issue in 2mins after spending hours trying other methods.

  137. Jordan says

    Thank you so much. This tool has saved me.

  138. Richard says

    Back again. Turned on the pc this morning and the same old ‘print spooler’ problem surfaced – no printers showing and could not add a printer. Ran the tool again (downloaded from website) and it appears all is well again. I will turn the pc off and wait a few hours before turning it on, to see if the problem re-occurs. keep your fingers crossed that printing on the pc will work perfectly.

    1. Techexpert says

      If the issue still persist after reboot, it means your print spooler is crashing due to other 3rtd party or system program’s .dll file. Please follow the following article to fix it: Click here to get the article.

  139. Richard says

    After much frustration trying to correct the problem, I finally applied your tool to Windows 7 environment and it works. Great stuff. Will watch carefully to see if problem re-occurs.

  140. Jemimah Gonzalo says

    Oh my gosh!Thanks a lot. My mom had a very important file to print and it tensed me when i saw the printer spooler crash at the time. Thanks a lot really..Thank you thank you thank you….

  142. Sheilla says

    Awesome guys, been struggling with my printer for 4 hours before we realised it’s a spooler issue, you guys are amazing !

    1. Techexpert says

      Great!! You’re welcome!!

      1. manuel says

        it worked but eventually the spooler subsystem app error message keeps showing again. all of printers listed in printers and faxes are disappeared. im using windows xp pro sp3 32 bit and epson printer L120 model. please advise, thanks.

        1. Techexpert says

          You’re welcome!!
          To fix this Print spooler subsystem app error message, follow the following instruction given below:

          1. Go to Programs and Features under Control panel –>> click on turn Windows features on or off
          2. You’ll get ‘windows features’ window, click on plus (+) sign of “Print services” or “print & documents services” there.
          3. Un-tick the checkbox of “Remove Internet Printing Client”
          3. Tick the check box of LPD and LPR.
          4. Now restart your computer and install / Add your printer again.

          Let us know if this works for you.

          1. manuel says

            I can’t find the Programs and Features under Control Panel.
            I’m using Windows XP Professional SP3 32 bit.
            Is there any way to resolve my issue?
            Please advise.

          2. Techexpert says

            Actually in windows XP the option “Turn windows feature on & off” is “Add / Remove Windows Components”. But there is no option to turn on and off “LPD” & “LPR” in windows XP. You can share your complete problem with us in detail, we’ll help you.

            Click on “Start button”
            Click on “Control panel”
            Click on “Add or Remove Program”
            Click on “Add / Remove Windows Components”

  146. David Cleavinger says

    I was troubleshooting the problem between my mom’s laptop and wireless printer. Was looking for driver issues, updating drivers, generally beating my head on the wall. Finally got set up with a helpful wizard from HP and began running through it. Was directed to this tool after I could not start the print spooler. It worked. Thanks, I don’t know if or not I would have ever solved the problem without your tool fixing the spooler.

    Windows 8.1, connected wirelessly to hp photosmart 5520e

  147. Deborah says

    Thank you good sir for fixing my printer spooler.

    Thank you, thank you and thank you Pawan Kumar and freinds/fellow glorious workers for fixing my printer spooler.

    1. Techexpert says

      It’s my pleasure! You’re most welcome! Your appreciation is enough to inspire us to do more better. Happy to know that our tool has fixed your print spooler issue. Thanks

  162. Yogesh Cbe says

    @echo off
    REM Stops and Starts the Print Spooler service
    net stop “print spooler”
    net start “print spooler”
    echo Print Spooler service has been restarted

    Please copy and paste above cmd in notepad and save as .bat file and .put its to Scheduled task every two minutes . it will restate spooler

    1. Theo says

      If this suggestion is directed to me, you may need to elaborate a little, you’ve mostly lost me after ‘REM’, though I do know what a cmd is. Which part of the first four lines is the cmd I need to copy? I’m lost again after “notepad’. Regards. PS, only REM I know is a band form the ’70’s

      1. Techexpert says

        Yes you are right, I think the syntax was wrong. Here we provide you the right syntax. You just need to copy the following two lines in the notepad and then save to .bat file format:

        Net stop spooler
        Net start spooler

        But I don’t understand why you put it into schedule task to keep print spooler service start. Because this is not the right way to keep start your print spooler service.

  163. Gilbert says

    Cheers mate the tool worked like a charm & has also saved me a lot of trouble. Hope to see more of such innovative tools & sw-s from you guys. Also I would like to suggest a little improvement on this great SW – if you could tweak it to auto-call the services page (i.e. the page which opens using services.msc) after the change so then the users can change the option for startup to be “Automatically”; as it is not known to many, i suppose.

    1. Techexpert says

      Your most welcome!! Sure, we’ll definitely implement your suggestion in our next version.
      Again thank you for sharing your thought of our tool. It is enough to inspire us to do something more better.

  164. Theo says

    Downloaded and ran repair tool to fix Error 1068, get “Successfully finished” dialogue, but print spooler still does not work. Services tells me it and all its dependencies are running, have stopped and restarted all but to no avail. Problem appears to have started with W8.1 upgrade. Printer is networked through homegroup, so I deleted it so as to add it again, but cannot do that because spooler needs to be running. Latest drivers are installed. Help!

    1. Techexpert says

      OK, Please try to start your print spooler service manually and let us know if you get any error message.

      1. Theo says

        Started spooler manually ok with no error message with no error message, reset it to auto, shut down and restarted, and services shows me it is still running, though RPC is not. Tried to add printer and found that it did not work because Network Discovery was not running. Tried to start that but the dependencies UpNP, Device Host, SSDP Discovery, and Function Discovery would not start and each time I tried, I received the 1068 error. DNS Client started OK, and remains running. RPC is also a dependency of Function Discovery, which is where I found it was not working. Every time I apply start changes to these dependencies, they reset to manual start and don’t run. HTTP seems to be the common service in both the spooler and Network Discovery dependencies, but it does not appear in the services list, and I have full functionality in my web browser.
        Wondering if a clean install could be the only solution.

        1. Techexpert says

          Main cause could be the windows 8.1 upgrade was not done properly. Anyway, we are giving you the solution to fix this as well. We have made an article on windows 10 upgrade issues, which you can apply on your windows 8.1 upgrade as well. Please try it, it should work definitely.
          Please let us know if doesn’t work.
          Please follow the following article steps: Follow both of the methods in the article, method1 and method2.

          1. Theot says

            We have a satellite connection, which on many occasions has caused corruption of downloaded .exe files, possibly due to the uneven, even stop start download speeds, which is why I suspected the 8.1 upgrade from the start. Was considering upgrading laptop and two PC’s to W10, and then a clean install of W10 on the ailing computer. However, I read that the spooler problem is occasionally still a problem in W10 [and has been around since XP], hence the clean install idea. Decide this morning to go ahead with the W10 upgrade, and not trusting my satellite link, went to the local library for the free wi-fi to download the Media Creation Tool to the laptop.That downloaded ok, then the W10 download froze at 6% for forty minutes and never recovered. You can probably understand why I never buy lottery tickets.
            Will try your suggestions above before I go any further with W10, so if nothing else, it may create answers for others.

          2. Techexpert says

            Don’t install windows 10. Try our given suggested article’s steps on windows 8.1. Try it and let us know if doesn’t work.

  165. mohamed says

    I hit Repair, it says fixed it shows the printer is repairs but then instantly it is NOT.

    1. Techexpert says

      If our tool finishd without error means that your print spooler starts fine but it stopped working just after it start. Do one thing, start and stop your service manually from service.msc page and let us know if you get any error message.

  172. Gary D says

    Worked perfectly on Windows 7. Been struggling with this for hours but all sweet now.

    The repair tool worked perfectly. The computer was upgraded from W7 to W10 and the print spooler stopped working immediately thereafter. The service did show HTTP listed as a dependency, no HTTP service listed. Performing the manual steps to correct that did not fix the entire problem, neither did performing all the other manual steps. To tool worked perfectly. Thanks!

  250. Jagoan Terbang says

    Not working for my Windows 8.1. If I create new document in CorelDRAW, it takes forever to open, but when I stop Print Spooler, CorelDRAW files open instantly. And when I start Print Spooler, CorelDRAW stuck again when open and/or printing files.

    What is the relation between Print Spooler and opening files in CorelDRAW…? It’s so frustrating, I have to restart Print Spooler many times to make it works. And when it’s working, it’s fine until I turn off /restart my PC.

  251. Ashwin says

    thanks a lot guys…appreciate it a lot

  252. Daffa says

This is the only way out if you have installed many printers in your system earlier. Thanks a lot again.

  260. Salvador T. says

    Hello, this tool did not work for me neither. I tried everything found on the net.. until I disable Printer Notifications and Disable Advanced Printing Features under Printing Preferences/Advanced. Thanks!!

  261. Alvin Hofer says

    I tried your printer spooler repair tool in my Windows 7 OS. I stopped the print spooler service as admin before running your repair tool. The repair tool reported a successful finish and it restarted the printer service. Looking at the spoolsv and spoolss files in Windows Explorer, I did not notice a new modification date. Also, I noticed that the file sizes were those of the old spooler files. My conclusion is that nothing was done but the restart of my printer service with the same old files. Your response would be appreciated.

  262. Steve says




  263. TJ says

    I sat here for almost 5 hours over the past two days trying to figure out the spool error. I came across this site and took a chance. It was fixed in less than one minute!!! Geez, thank you sooo much. I was afraid to use an unknown soure, but am so happy now!!!! Happy dance…

  264. James says

You are wonderful!! Thank you, thank you!!

    1. Techexpert says

      You’re most welcome!! Thank you so much for your appreciation. Have great day !! 🙂

  271. Horia Costrut says

    Windows7 with HP Color Laser Jet – CM 1015 MFP.

    I tried your tool, I tried to fix it manually, but nothing. All started, I think, with a BSOD reported by my wife. After a restart and a “delete restauration data and continue with nomal Windows start-up”, everything seemed to be normal until I tried to print. In Device Manager it shows the printer but it is not default, and context menu shows only the troubleshooting option, wich doesn’t work. Also, add printer is not working: it either gives an error about spooler not starting (1068): The service stopped unexpectedly, or an error about Windows can’t open Add printer. Error 0x000006be – Operation could not be completed (something about windows firewall as I’ve read somewhere). I’ve tried, with windows firewall on and off, to start manually the spooler service, after 2-3 tries it goes on, but when clicking add printer, it immediatly turns off. Other then re-installing windows, I don’t know what to do anymore… And that will be an option after a system upgrade only… Virus scan negative with multiple antiviruses. Thank you for your great work anyways…

  272. Colin says

    Did not work for me but I have tried everything. When I attempt to start the print spooler from Service.msc I get an “error 0x800706b9.

    I have tried everything that is available currently even close to this particular issue; even a great video posted by this forum that I really thought was going to solve the problem but still did not.

    There are currently no printers listed and there is in fact no printer option in the ‘Device Manager’ settings either. Could this be a virus? It occurred just after a Windows Update and upon the installation of Webroot security software from Best Buy. My Windows Restore is not functioning either.

    If ANYONE has a solution to this problem please let me know.



  273. SCUT says

    Oh my god your method finally works, and all the problems are fixed properly!
    Thank you for saving my time on this annoying problem, and stopped me from re-install the whole system ^_^
    I’ll share my experiences with friends and certainly about your vital support!
    Once again, a great THANK YOU!

  274. Joia says

    This didn’t work for me. I have Windows 7. The print job queue shows that it is printing 3/1 pages. Nothing will print, although it was working fine earlier today.

  275. BIPzer says

    This tool works! Very very useful, just one use and printer spooler started and I was able to print immediately. Thanks!

  278. Kamil says

    Thank you very much!
    good job guys 😉

  279. rick says

    The spooler has started, thank you.
    But, it still won’t print.
    All it gives me is a save option for the page to documents, no print option.

  280. Sasahikala Lakmali says


  281. Larry says

    I used it and it worked, but the next day I had to use it again, will I have to use it every time I restart my computer?

  282. Tyrone says

    I’m afraid the tool still doesn’t work for windows 8.1

    1. Techexpert says

    o/s = Vista Home Premium.

Wish I knew what you did to fix it. Real story will be what happens after a reboot. Thanks.

  343. Ferman Carr says

    I ran Printer-Spool-Repair (on Windows 7) after a print job was stuck in the Q saying it was printing (but would not print). In the past I would run Services to RESTART PRINT SPOOLER which would release the print job. The only thing your tool did was to release my print job and restart my computer. However, after I ran another print sussecfully, the next print job would hang up again. Any ideas?


  344. suresh says

    printer error

  345. JanD says

    so I ran your tool, rebooted and tried again, for some reason my spoolers still are not running and I can install my printer – its giving me error code 216 //0xd8 – i am on windows 7

    1. Techexpert says

      If you ran our tool and didn’t get any error message while running, it means your print spooler is successfully restored back to factory setting. But in your case seems like there must a problem in your windows. We recommend you a Tool (Combofix Tool) which will fix windows issue. Please try Combofix tool and let us know again.

  346. Hung says

    Put computer into safe mode but it states ‘not connected to the internet’. Perhaps start windows in safe mode with command prompt? Can’t run an internet program if there is no internet connection!

      1. Open Services.msc page
      2. Go to “print spooler” service and then do double click it.
      3. Go to Recovery tab.
      4. Set what that service should do when it fails.
      5. Set first Failure as ‘Restart the Service’
      6. Set second failure as ‘Restart the Service’
      7. Then click on apply and Ok
      8. Ensure that the RPC service in running stage.

      Now do restart your computer.
