Fixing error: Cannot install printer.

My HP 1020 laser printer would print from Word 2007, but Vista 64 would not recognize it or let me use it for many functions. I received a print spooler error message when trying to install it, but could not find where to fix the print spooler.
Using that: Computer > Manage> Services and Applications > Services > then click on Print Spooler, and fiddle, fixed it.
Changing the sprint spooler setting from Manual, to Automatic, seemed to instantly result in both that printer, and my all-in-one Epson Stylus CX5000 being now recognized too. Yeah! thank you so much.
