If you Right click the printer in devices, does it give you a submenu of the "lost" ones.

Also saw tweaking on your screenshot, would have thought its more directed towards home users.
Have a look in its log, see what its changed.

looking around the net other suggestions include checking that print spooler is set to auto, and that sometimes Bluetooth causes problems.

Print spooler is set to auto, bluetooth settings are correct per the several different websites that dictate the settings for bluetooth services to be specially configured. Tweaking was used to attempt to repair the print spooler.

Thanks for the help guys, due to time constraints i'm forced to reimage the machine. I appreciate everyone's help!
