The Print Spooler service depends on the RPC service, and that's what the error seems to be about - dependancies. But you mentioned that RPC is running normally, so that shouldn't be the problem.
I'm not sure what could fix the problem, but I just thought I'd let you know that if you do reinstall Windows (without formatting) you won't lose any of your existing software.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
