    Every day when I switch on my PC , me Printers disappear and I need to go to the Command prompt and type "net start spooler" to get the printers to re-appear

    I would like to know how to oversome this problem, so that the printers do not disappear once I have shut down my pc and restart the next day

    Your assistance in this regard will be most appreciated

    Click the start orb and type
    services.msc
    into the search box and hit enter
    Scroll down in the services console and find
    Print Spooler
    double click it and set the startup type to Automatic using the drop down arrow. Click OK.
    Should be good.
