Restarting your computer should active the print spooler again.
Another possible fix for this problem if restarting the computer does not help is to download and run this program.
To start the print spooler, you open a command prompt.
Click on start, type CMD in the search box at the bottom. Right click on cmd.exe in the results and choose run as administrator.
In the black command prompt window, type NET START SPOOLER
and press enter.
Or...Your print spooler should start automatically when you boot your computer. That is why I suggested a reboot. The tool I suggested you to download is a script that stops the spooler, fixes a possible problem with print spooler dependencies, clears any stuck print jobs and then starts the spooler again.
If you are doing all these suggestions and the print spooler will not start, then you likely have a corrupt print driver or in the worst case a corruption in your windows installation.

Were you able to open the command prompt as administrator?
Do you get an error when you type net start spooler ?

Please go to start -> programs -> accessories and see if you can locate the command prompt shortcut there. Right click on it and choose run as administrator.

and let me know what it says.
That is the command to start your print spooler.
