vssadmin writers list empty -- none of the online fixes work

Today I noticed that I cannot create restore points. Error in event log:
===========================================================
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: An internal inconsistency was detected in trying
to contact shadow copy service writers. The Registry Writer failed to respond to a query
from VSS. Check to see that the Event Service and Volume Shadow Copy Service
are operating properly, and please check the Application event log for any other events.


Operation:
Gathering Writer Data
Executing Asynchronous Operation

Context:
Execution Context: Requestor
Current State: GatherWriterMetadata

=====================================================
Tried all sorts of online suggestions, none worked.
I ran CHKDSK -- no problems.
I ran SFC /SCANNOW which found no problems.
I ran the following .BAT file:
===============================
cd /d %windir%\system32
net stop vss
net stop swprv
regsvr32 /s ole32.dll
regsvr32 /s oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 /s vss_ps.dll
vssvc /register
regsvr32 /s /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /s /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 /s es.dll
regsvr32 /s stdprov.dll
regsvr32 /s vssui.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml4.dll
vssvc /register
net start swprv
net start vss
====================
and got several errors that I don't even understand:

The module "eventcls.dll" was loaded but the call to DlRegisterServer failed with error 0x0080070715.
Same for module swprv.dll.
The module "es.dll" was loaded but the entry point DlRegisterServer was not found.
The module "vssui.dll" failed to load.
Same for modules msxml.dll, msxml4.dll
Can anybody figure out what's going on and what I should do to fix?
