Hello. I have a funny situation where the Spooler task (Spoolsv.exe) and a couple of others, will not start. Trying to manually start the services results in "(Task name) can not start in Safe Mode" however, the machine is not booted in Safe Mode. I regularly run Adaware, Spybot and Norton AV 2005 and there have been no malwares detected. This situation seems to have begun after the last MS updates (6/15 - applied 6/30), or at least it was detected 7/3. I tried applying MicroSoft KB312052 with no relief. What I'm most curious about is what is going on inside that machine such that the services think it's running in Safe Mode when it is not.
