The XP print driver registry keys are the same as the Vista print driver
Before performing registry edits find out if the spooler fails to start
Open an elevated command window (Run as administrator) and type
net start spooler
if you get error 1068 and you recently deleted a Lexmark or Dell printer you
will need to run the Vendor provided uninstall application for the printer
to remove the printer specific vendor stuff from the registry before
attempting the printer reinstall. http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/CleanPrinterDrivers.htm
