Help! I accidently deleted the print spooler.

Does anyone know where to find a new install for the print spooler or is
there such a thing? (I feel like an idiot)

Hi, argento2665 and welcome to the Vista Forums, arty:

First thing, when did this happen?

If it is a recent problem would suggest you try a system restore

'System Restore - How to - Vista Forums'
(http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76...store-how.html)

If this does not help you can try a system File Check ...

'System Files - SFC Command - Vista Forums'
(http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/66...%20Maintenance)


If all else fails ther is the repair install ...

'Repair Install For Vista '
(http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88...all-vista.html)

With all these I am assuming you have a Vista install DVD if not you
can have a look at this which will enable some of the above options ...

'Create a Recovery Disc - Vista Forums'
(http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/14...very-disc.html)

If this fails a reinstall may be the only option (either from original
DVD or via the restore option for laptops

Is the spooler really deleted or is it just stopped? If the latter open
an elevated command window (start, type cmd.exe in the start search box,
hold control and shift and press enter). In the command window type:

Net start spooler
