    Unable to use PC while running printer spooler service

    I am not able to use PC running on Windows 7 properly while running printer spooler service. It takes 5-10 minutes to start up Windows in my PC on enabling printer spooler service. When I disable this service, I can start up the system within minutes. What are troubleshooting steps needed for fixing up this issue to make my PC work with printer?

    You should first of all check whether your printer hardware is properly connected to your PC. For that, you should check whether the cable is unplugged or printer power switch is turned on. Then you should install ‘Microsoft Fix it’ on your PC. After that, you should update the driver software of the printer. You can update it through ‘Windows Updates’ or software obtained from manufacturer of the printer. It is also possible to perform update by downloading the driver and installing it by yourself. If the problem persists even after performing all these steps, you should delete the printer software and start the spooler again.
