Dear,

I have lost all the installed printers in Win2K Server. When I tried to add new printer it say alert "Printer operation cannot continue due to lack of resources. The print subsystem is unavailable". I have tried to restart the spooler service. It successfully started but when I opened the Printer Folder, it automatically again stopped. After this try I also set the spooler to restart if failed till two-failure attempts. But the matter is still there. When I try to add new printer it again shows same alert.

Please guide me. Spooler again and again stopped (I tried to restart) when trying to add new printer. I have checked my system for viruses with Norton updated ant virus software but no virus is found in my PC.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Naveed Ashraf

Did you have any previus crashes. For example a svchost.exe crash (background process)?
Try to make a clean reinstall if all fails.. but makesure you destroy all of the HD paritions first since win2k reinstalls are known to be fake.. Often win2k would just use the old bad files..

Are your printers networked? Are they phisically atached to your computer? if not check what protocols you using for your network...
