So a huge thank you to everybody who helped me get the Print Spooler service re-started. stantley, Aug 6, 2010 #7 Palladia-Mors Thread Starter Joined: Apr 16, 2008 Messages: 211 Can I just copy and paste the one in i386, or do I need to expand it? Nope, I still get the same error: "Windows could not load the installer for Image." I guess all the SPs that came for XP were all corrupt to begin with. this has just worked for me, if you have this problem, give this a try: on the windows cd, copy SPOOLSV.EXE to C:\WINDOWS\system32.

  5. Is the printer installed on your local computer or networked somewhere else?

  7. I had a Canon MP780 printer already installed but the printer portion of it stopped working, though the scanning portion of it still works.
