In Windows

  • All your printers have gone. If you have a local printer that printer is listed as an Unspecified device.
  • The print spooler service had stopped. If  restarted the service stops again.

Go to  “”%WINDIR%\system32\spool\printers”” & deleted all the files in there.

Start the print Spooler , it should remain started

Refresh device & printers and all  printers should be back again & the local printer is no longer an Unspecified device.
