    Dunno why but i just noticed that my printer isnt installed. But i tried to reinstall it again and went to "add printer", but i got this error " Operation could not be completed " .

    I think i turned something off when i was tweaking my windowsXP hhehe. But dunno what. Maybe someone can help me out.

    If you followed my XP Tweak Guide (Reformat to Relax), then I mentiond under the Services section that the Print Spooler service should be set to Automatic if you have a printer installed.

    Once you set it to Automatic you should press the Start button on in the same box to start up the service. If that fails, rebooting should start the service and everything will be fine.
