How do I turn on local print spooler in windows 8

I originally set up my HP 5520 printer with a wireless connection to my HP Envy 23 with windows 8.  It printed and scanned fine.  Today I turned on the system and tried to print an email and I get the message that the local print spooler is not running.  I have gone into the system to verify this.  It is enabled but not running.  How do I start the spooler up?  I used the print and scan utility and the printer will scan.

Re: How do I turn on local print spooler in windows 8

Hi,

 

Can you see the Spooler in Sercices tab under Task Manager ? Is it running ? If not, just right click and Start it.  Please watch the following video which shows you how to get it up with Windows:

Re: How do I turn on local print spooler in windows 8

Hi,  I attempted to the video and followed the instructions.  The result was that when I got to the part about restart, the restart was grayed out and the only thing that worked was the start button.  The result was a message that said "Windows could not start the print spooler service on local computer.  Error 1068.  The dependency service or group failed to start."

 

I also tried to stop the print spooler but no reaction.  I checked the local dependency group and the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) was running but I could not find the HTTP Service.
