Print Spooler & Volume Shadow Copy Errors in Vista

By apm00001 ·
I have experienced continual problems with print spooler errors (PC running Vista Home Premium). In the past, MicrosoftFixit50126_2.msi has taken care of the print spooler problem, but this time the Fixit failed.

When I tried to restart the Print Spooler manually in the System file, I received the following error message: "Windows could not start the Print Spooler service on the Local Computer. Error 3. The system cannot find the path specified".

When print spooler isn?t working, I can?t install the required print driver from HP website.

Finally, I am unable to use System Restore to fix the problem; I received an error message: ?The Volume Shadow Copy service used by System Restore is not working. For more information view the event log (0x81000202)?.

When I went to my System file to restart Volume Shadow Copy, once again I received Error 3 ? the system cannot find the path specified.

What to do, what to do????
