    Help: Print Spooler won't start after upgrading from windows 7

    Dear all,

    I'm stuck with my print spooler that doesn't want to start. It was working fine before the upgrade.
    I get the following message when going to the "view services on local computer"
    Windows could not start the Print Spooler service on Local Computer.
    Error 0x80070057: The parameter is incorrect.

    I get the following message in the event viewer:
    The Print Spooler service terminated with the following error:
    One or more arguments are invalid

    In the details view I see the following info:
    - EventData
    param1 Print Spooler
    param2 %%2147942487

    Binary data:

    I have checked the following registry entry as described in [FIX] Windows Could Not Start The Print Spooler Service
    This didn't help.
    Anybody has any idea how to make the print spooler service work?

    Thanks for any help.
