I accidentally deleted the Print Spooler service, how do I get it back?

While running around with Process Hacker, I accidentally allowed the deletion of the Spooler service that handles just about everything relating to printing.

If that weren’t enough, for some odd reason, Windows System Restore does not want to function properly, no matter which restore point I decide to use. I keep getting ‘unknown’ errors regardless.

So, how can I reinstate the Print Spooler service manually? I’m pretty sure I have the tools to do it.

I’m running Windows Vista SP2 on a relatively quick computer.
I deleted the service (and think I can re-instate it) using Process Hacker- see http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/index.php
