    What operating system are ye running? If xp, then click:

    START, then RUN, then type in: services.msc (press enter).

    Make sure the "Printer Spooler" is started. If it isn't, rightclick on the "printer spooler" and select "START".

    If you get an error, please give the exact details to us! :)
