The print spooler failed to reopen an existing printer connection because it could not read the configuration information from the registry key S-1-5-18\Printers\Connections. The print spooler could not open the registry key. This can occur if the registry key is corrupt or missing, or if the registry recently became unavailable.

The XPS document writer is installed by default with Vista. It should not effect performance in any way.
When I diasable the software, something (bluetooth related?) enables it. It is a Microsoft XPS Document Writer
This is the touchpad drivers\software used on your laptop. The touchpad and drivers are built by Alps supplied to dell. See input devices here.
Anyway while writing the filter for firefox and IE7 I discovered a program ApMsgFwd.exe (or apoint.exe by another name) it's command path is C:\Program Files\DellTPad\ApMsgFwd.exe-s
So i ran a hjt scan, and have posted the result. I think this is causing the broadcom like failure in the firefox and IE7 browsers.
Nothing wrong there either. All normal defaults.
I'm not real hjtlog literate but i think there are some problems in R1 and R0 maybe 5 or so

Highly unlikely. Sharing functions for the XPS document writer are disabled by default if you have no other physical printer installed anyway. There are much better ways for someone to gain access. Not something I would be the least bit concerened about.
Is it possible for someone to (via wireless lan or otherwise) to use that application to unaurthorized document access?
The Alps touch pad program does not have a valid signed certificate. I discovered this while checking out it's properties. My Dell inspiron 1525 was purchased in March 2008. Could the lack of a valid signature have anything to do with the browser hanging or stopping?
