  1. 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

  9. 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!!!!
