Windows: what to do if the virus disabled the printing subsystem?



Windows: what to do if the virus disabled the printing subsystem? Some viruses infect Microsoft Windows, disable printing subsystem.
  Symptoms: when you try to print a file, a message appears that the print subsystem is unavailable. When you try to display the properties connected printers error message: "Unable to display the printer properties. Print subsystem is unavailable ".
Unpleasant consequence is that even after treatment, printing subsystem is unavailable.
