Windows 7: spoolsv.exe taking long to shutdown/ System restore 'broken'

12 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit (home)
spoolsv.exe taking long to shutdown/ System restore 'broken'

Someone read my shutdown log and told me this.
shutdownProcess name="spoolsv.exe" shutdownStartTime="4908" shutdownEndTime="24938" processEndTime="-1" shutdownDuration="20029"

My shutdown went from 10 seconds to 30 seconds after I installed my printer's drivers from the disc it came with. He told me to get rid of the driver and install the newer ones from the HP website, but after I uninstalled the printer and it's drivers the shutdown still dragged even when the printer wasn't installed. I went ahead and got the newest driver and the problem still remains.

I tried to do a system restore to before I installed the printer, but I kept getting this error message. I tried it again in safe mode too, but to the same result. Here's the error message.

How can I fix the system restore or just get rid of this service so I can replace it with the newer driver's one?
Thank you guys all in advance and I appreciate every one of your answers!
