Problem with print spooler in Vista

Hello All,

On Vista I continue to receive a message "system event notification system does not work..." . When I opened the event viewer I have an event every couple of seconds as follows:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-SpoolerWin32SPL
Date: 8/27/2007 1:16:05 PM
Event ID: 4
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: Wayne2-PC
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.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.micro.../events/event">
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-SpoolerWin32SPL" Guid="{13E8B4F7-4D1C-4F65-95A2-39C6B26A3012}" EventSourceName="Client Side Rendering Spooler" />
<EventID Qualifiers="49152">4</EventID>
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2007-08-27T17:16:05.000Z" />
<Correlation />
<Execution ProcessID="0" ThreadID="0" />
<Security />
<Data Name="param1">S-1-5-18\Printers\Connections</Data>

I can't seem to stop these events as I am unable to figure out the problem. I sent this to MS and there is no answer from their remote analysis tool.

Any advice on how to fix this issue. I am fairly certain it is related to my networked OKI printer but I need a fix.

Thanks for any help!

Use regedit: Go to HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Printers. Right click and create a new key
named 'Connections'. I think that is all you need.
