All Printers Missing – Clean the Print Spooler

Have you ever gone to print, and all your printers are missing? This almost always means your print spooler service is not running, and that usually means that some print job crashed the spooler. Especially if you’re trying to print adobe PDF documents to an HP Laserjet 1010 or 1020 series printer.

Explaining how to stop the print spool service, delete all the active print jobs to that printer, and then re-starting the spool service can be a longer process than it should be. But, if you download and run the attached cool little batch file, it does it all for you in seconds.

I think I have to zip it, or you may not be able to download it. So, download, unzip, and then run it. =)
