    For about a year, my Print Spooler service fails to start at boot because its “startup type” is “manual.” No matter how many times I change it to “automatic,” it’s always reset to “manual” after powering down and starting the computer the next time.

    There is nothing wrong with the Spooler service itself. Once it’s started, it will run forever, even if the computer’s running for a week without rebooting.

    I’ve scanned the computer for malware with NAV and Malware Bytes multiple times.

    I’ve scoured the Event Viewer for some clue as to what is resetting the service’s startup type, but that’s revealed nothing to me.

    No other services are affected.

    Multiple Google searches have turned up hundreds of problems with the Spooler service but NONE concering the service’s startup type.

    Does anyone have a clue about this weird phenomenon?
