Two days ago, all my printers disappeared from the Printers folder on Vista (32 bit). I had not installed any new programs or hardware and Vista had not crashed recently. Nothing whatsoever had changed with my setup. When I went to print, I got a message telling me that I had to install a printer first. Data Execution Prevention then popped up with a message telling me the SubSpool had stopped working, and that it was checking for solutions, which it didn't find. I don't have the message and I can't get it back because now I have no printers to cause the message to appear again. "Printers" aren't listed under Device Manager any more.

I tried restarting. I tried turning it off for a few hours. I tried reinstalling one of the printers - I got to "print test page" and nothing happened, no error message, just nothing. There are still no printers listed. It does not recognize that I have done anything when I plug a printer into any of the USB ports - these ports work fine for everything else.

I have Data Execution Prevention turned on for essential Windows programs and services only. DEP seems to be what is preventing me from seeing my printers, but I can't find out how to change the settings to allow me to print!

Thanks for any help you can give me.
