I have just gone from Windows XP to Windows Vista Ultimate (not an upgrade). I installed some drivers that weren't Vista compatible, and it was for a couple of networked, Xerox copiers. Now, I get a "spooler subsystem app stopped working and was closed" error. Also, when I try to remove the printer, the spooler service stops, and I get this error: "Printer cannot be removed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x000006be)."
I've tried booting into safe mode to remove the printer, but I can't start the print spooler service to start. I've downloaded the FieryPrinterDeleteUtility. This doesn't work either. Also, I don't have a System Restore point that goes back far enough to undo this mess.
Any suggestions other than another clean install?
