The print spooler service turns off.

The event viewer shows 2 errors
7034 and 7031
Print spool service terminated unexpectanly.

I've cleaned the system of spyware.
Nortons says there are no virus.
I've removed all unnecessary programs from the system as well as startup

I tried to run cleanspl.exe but got this error
Unable to create registy key
\\realt\hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\print. access is denied

I went into the windows\system32\printer folder and removed everything except folders named 2 and 3.

Any ideas?

I found some xerox software. uninstall couldn't find a file so i went into safe mode and removed the xerox folder.

also found a couple of processes lexpps.exe and lex??? don't recall....
when i do a search for them, windows didn't find them.
They also don't show in the start section of the registry.

I deleted the lex*.* files I found and those lex files don't show up in task manger any more.

I'm reinstalling SP2 just for giggles.

Just checked on the SP2 install and it failed. Access Denied.

Doing a system restore all the way back to July.

Might be better off rebuilding this thing.
