    OKAY... so... Let's see, where to start...

    I GUESS most of my problem is the winspool.drv error I keep getting

    "C:\WINDOWS\System32\winspool.drv is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. Error status 0xc0000045"

    I have gotten this error when trying to open up my antivirus software (Panda free anti-virus) and several other programs. I cannot load youtube videos (Which sucks 'cause I REALLY want to listen to music) and I've tried a regular system restore, not a factory reset, but I want to avoid that at all costs as this is not my computer.

    I've tried re-naming the file, I've tried deleting the file, I've tried many of the solutions here on the online help forum (This one) and on several other places on the internet. I need help, I need to fix this, and I can't really afford to wait all that long, so stream lined help would be MOST appreciated. I will check back here every minute of every hour if I have to, but I need to get this done now, and fast.
