    Windows 10 Freezes upon selecting print/ctrl p in any program


    Hi guys,

    Ever since i upgraded to windows 10 pro, ive been unable to print because whenever i press ctrl-p, in any program like word, excel, pdf viewer, anything the print dialog doesnt show up, instead the cursor changes to the busy sign and it just freezes there. i have to manually close the app via task manager. However, ive noticed on one occasion that if i wait really really long ( > 15 min) the print dialog eventually pops up. ctrl p works in chrome, but when it loads the default print dialog the same problem repeats.

    Using system spec:

    SFC does not work... Sometimes even a restart of the computer doesn't work but try going to processes and restarting (or stopping then starting again) the print spooler service... "Spooler". Get to it through Task Manager then the Services Tab.
