Do you own some type of Canon printer?

Yeah, we have a few shared on the network, but not installed directly to the server.
-Go to regedit, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>SERVICES>FIND the service startup info for the Canon service you described and delete it.. You many not have any Canon printer or multi-function device services or apps installed on this server, but there most probably was a failed attempt to install something related to that..

p.s. I dont have supernatural powers...How do you think I knew you had Canon printers?

Really I did a search for cis1284 and it only came up with 3 entries.  One of which was in a foreign language.
