This link (Google) finds the fourth entry to claim a fix with a (safe according to what I know) registry edit.

found this fix on another forum,can't vouch for it though, he had exactly the same problem as you.

This fix contains information about modifying the registry. Before you modify the registry, make sure to back it up and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. In the registry go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Spooler registry subkey and find an entry with the name DEPENDSonService. Backup this entry so you can restore it if other problems arise. After backing it up, delete the entry (value). Restart the machine and all should be well.
hope this helps."

I hope you see whose words I used in that Google. I didn't have to do a thing to find possible cures...
