    I am getting a 1053 error when I try to start the Printer Spooler error, Win 7 Ultimate. The only dependencies it has are HTTP and RPCSS which are running. I have tried:
    -Deleting the files in "Printers" and "Drivers" under the spool folder in System32
    -Clearing out any 3rd party printers in the registry
    - Confirming proper settings for the spool service registry key
    - Removed all printers under "Devices and Printers"
    - Uninstalled all 3rd party printing software
    - Replaced spoolsv.exe and the spool dll file with the one on the installation disc

    I am out of ideas. It was working fine and printing fine until it just stopped. I had 2 HP Printers, a Brother Printer, CUTE pdf printer, Logmein virtual printer and Office onenote printer installed but they are all deleted now.
