Run as admin Start \ Start Search \ services.msc

Restart the Print Spooler and verify that it is set to start automatically.

Test. If it doesn't work, continue...

Go to properties for C:\Windows\System32\spoolsv.exe 

Security \ Advanced \ Owner. 

Make your admin user owner and take full permissions.

Test. If it doesn't work, continue...

Start cmd.exe as admin and run the following command:

del /Q C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS\*.*

Test. I'm not sure what a next step would be as I've never had to go past this...
