On my computer I get this error -
could not start the print spooler service on local computer
error 1084 this service cannot be started in safe mode
the strange thing is, I'm not IN safe mode.
Anybody ever seen this?
Found this - Windows XP THINKS it's in Safe Mode:
Go to Start > Run > type regedit and click OK
Then go to Edit > Find and search for SafeBoot
When the SafeBoot key is found in the registry there should be two subkeys, 'Minimal' and 'Network', if there is a third subkey 'Option', delete the entire 'Option' subkey and the problem will be solved.
Note: backup the registry first! (File > Export-> Save)
delete the option folder this will work
