The above message has just started,and It means that the computer is not
recognising my printer.I see there are other people with the same problem.My
printer is not shown on the start menu "printers and fax" but the software is
installed.Power to printer etc is ok. I am nervous about messing with
registry being of rookie status,at least as far as anything in depth is
concerned.I keep getting different warnings about printer spooler send notice
to ms(re spooler sub system) this started a couple of days ago and has now
cut of my printer entirely.Reffering back to another start date does not work
either..Please..Thanks Ian

It's perfectly useless to know the right answer to the wrong question.
