Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
You did Fred, but you skipped over it, no problem I can repeat
What is the error you get when you try to start the print spooler?
Please let me know
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.
I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.
Thanks,
Richard

received error code 1068

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
When exactly did you receive this error Fred? On which step?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

under services, selected start

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks
Can you press the windows key + X and click on command prompt (admin)
A black window will open.
Type in it
sfc /scannow
press enter and when it has completed, type in
chkdsk /r
Press enter.
It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.
chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.
Please note, while this normally only takes 10 minutes to run, it can take at times number of hours if windows encounters many issues. If this is occurring it is critical to let this complete as it means you have corruption on the hard drive that it needs to fix. Even if it looks like the scan is not progressing, it is, please just let it run to completion. Windows will then start when it has.
Then try to start the print spooler.
Let me know the results please
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

OK, scannow - no integrity violated chkdsk/I - windows scanned & no problems found

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, now start the print spooler and try to print please.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Press the windows key + X and click on command prompt (admin)
