Try disabling you firewall/Anti virus and then install it, I often have problems installing software until i turn off my firewall protection.

I think that is a typo, but always good to start at installation, the beginning

sorry for late reply.Last time, i have installed it without any problems. I have searched that some updates from winUpdate might have caused spooler issues. Luckily today, I have managed to fix the "add printer" issue. But still 1 of the required drivers for my printer always fails to install. I have downloaded the right driver for the model and its corresponding os(win7). I don't want to do a fresh install for i will have to download those bunch of hotfixes again. >.<
