Printer Spooler missing after virus removal


Recommended Posts

I had some virus/malware problems that were causing my system to shut down when trying to update MBAM. LDTate on this board graciously helped me with the removal, but now my printer is not working.

Here's my HJT log:

I tried these instructions below, as given in a related thread, but it did not work.

"start>control panel>administrative Tools>Services>

scroll down to print spooler>right click it>click properties>make sure you are on the general tab>

go down to startup type and make sure its on automatic>then hit apply> Note: If the service shows Stopped, start it.

then click the start button under the service status>apply again>hit OK.

now exit all of the services and administrative tools and go to where your printer and faxes are located and now try to install a printer or try to print."

This is the error message I got:

"Could not start the printer spooler on Local Computer. Error 2 : the system cannot find the specified file"

c:\windows\System32\spoolsv.exe ... is missing !!

That was showing in your combofix log before.

I should have had you do this:

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.

Download Mirror #1

Download Mirror #2

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    :filefind
    spoolsv.exe


  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.

Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

Go to C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 find spoolsv.exe and Right Click on spoolsv.exe and select Copy

Go to c:\Windows\system32 Right Click anywhere in the folder and select Paste

It should show one file copied

Did this ^ and then went to Administrative Services under Control Panel, etc and started printer spooler and everything seems to be back to normal once again.

THANKS!!!!!!
