Print server service locks XP on boot
Posted on 2007-10-12
XP Home PC locks/freezes at the welcome screen if the print server service is automatic. The installed Lexmark printer disappeared under printers. Uninstalled the Lexmark, rename printsv and reinstalled/expanded it from the XP disk. Set the printer server service to manual and then started the print server and then installed a HP laserjet and printed a test page. Set the print server service back to automatic and rebooted. Same problem where it locks/freezes at the welcome screen. Safe mode everything is ok. I have tried disabling everything from msconfig and have all hidden temp files.
