Vista printer spooler service stopped

Vista nagged me with print spooler service is no longer working. Restarting stopped it after a few minutes again. MS Fix-it didn't help but I found this and it worked.

Go to  %SystemRoot%\Windows\System32\Spool. In this folder I renamed the 'PRINTERS' folder to PRINTERSold

Printer appears offline in Vista

Even though the printer is up and running the status shown in Vista is Offline and printing is not possible.
Remedy: change WSD port to a standard tcp/ip port and disable snmp
