I got an old Lexmark printer that I wasn't using anymore and I wanted to get rid of its services. When I did so, none of my printers worked again (HP, Epson). After doing some search I have found a solution at the given link. By doing the steps mentioned there I was able to put the Print Spooler on its feets.

I uninstalled a Lexmark and was also totally shut down for printing. Using the above steps to remove the dependency in the registry was absolutely all I had to do and full functionality was restored. (Acer laptop using XP Pro.)
  Smitty in VA.  
is required to run in order for you or at least me to be able to print to your Lexmark printer
After uninstalling lexmark printer driver, the print spooler is not working and is givning the exception 'The print spooler service depends on nonexistent service LexBces.exe'

Uninstalled Printer & services still running

Lexmark are complete fools to have ever made such a program! I can't believe the inconvenience that file ahs caused for so many people including me. Any program that wastes so much of your time is dangerous - to your sanity. Go with Old Guy's advice!
On my Dell laptop (circa 2001 model) my print spooler service is dependant on the LEXBCXE service. I'm guessing it was shipped from Dell that way. My background is 35+ years of computer programming.
