have windows XP pro - all printers disapeared and cannot add a new printer. when clicking “Add Printer”. Message says - “Operation could not be completed”. Also when trying to install with the printers CD message says - “setup has determined that Spooler Service has stopped etc.” The drivers for the printers still seemed to be installed. What happened???

Go to adm tools, services, and see if the print spooler service is running.

Also check in device manager to see of all the USB entries are functioning.
