Is there any possibility that the HP Diskjet uninstallers or RevoProUninstaller removed it? No, create an account now. Then continue to isolate the next driver. So a huge thank you to everybody who helped me get the Print Spooler service re-started. check this link right here now

I can't figure out what I need to do to get Print Manager to work. Register now! Can you tell me what directory I could find these files so maybe I could navigate there using the File, Open choice?

When I try to add the printer I get the message "Windows can't open Add Printer. Do you have the installation CD that came with the printer?

In the "Command Prompt" window type exit and tap [ Enter ] to close the window. More hints Please restart the spooler or restart the machine." One thing I did notice - there is an Uninstall option if I look in Device Manager, Imaging Devices and right click Canon I prefer not to go down that road again now that my computer functions at a more reasonable speed. If so, I would turn the printer off, disconnect it from the computer, un-install any of the MP470 software including any drivers.

As stated previously I do not see any files in the /windows/system32/spool/Printers directory. You also should run superantispyware and Malwarebytes anti malware to be sure there aren't some other bad guys, running on you computer..Both are free and available at www.majorgeeks.com or www.download.com, or In the run box type printui /s and click "OK" or tap "Enter" In the "Print Server Properties" window, click the "Drivers" tab. This could also be caused by someone intentionally deleting the file, regardless the error states the file no longer exisit in the place the OS is looking for it.
