Hi

A PC lost it list of network printers. However, a reboot restored the
printer list.

This has moved on to no printers showing and can't add a printer, as user or
administartor.
'Windowcan't open Add printer. Operatin could not be completed. error
0x000006e6'

PC is behaving normally otherwise!

PC: Win Vista Business sp2
Networked to SBS

Many Thanks

Be sure to start the Print Spooler service
