We had a similar case with a client, try the following and let us know if it helps:

1. Go to Programs and Features in Control panel > click Turn Windows features on or off

2. click '+' sign of Print services

3. Select LPD and LPR. You should remove Internet Printing Client. > restart your PC to ensure there is no error of spooler service.

4. Add your printer driver again.
