It has been a while since I have been here. I am sure my PC has some hidden Registry problem, but I cannot find it.
Hardware: HP 8440P, Windows 7 64 bit.
MacAffee found no viruses, but of course my kid was playing on the machine and I am sure he clicked "yes" on some webpage.
The Registry for the Print Spooler keeps shutting down. When I attempt to print from Micorsoft Word, it shows my HP1018 printer as not really being a printer. I checked the Print Spooler and attempted a restart. It restarts fine, but then when I attempt to print from Word (or any MS office program) the Print Spooler shuts down. Same is true with adobe acrobat reader.
My guess is something corrupted the Registry to screw with me.
Never had a problem with Windows 7 yet...but I guess the bad guys get good eventually.
I searched the forums and found nothing on this, but if I missed it feel free to direct me!
