Sure makes their life easier and save time on the phone!!!!!!!!!
FIRST....UNINSTALL anything you have added AFTER the system was working fine...
If they are a problem now they ALWAYS will be.....FACT
If you can get the system stable again after the uninstall then CAUTIOUSLY start again
Get the LATEST drivers..install ONE at a time and TEST THEM before you add the next one
IF .. however you have an unstable platform and you cannot stabilise it then ask yourself how ONE software product will undo ALL of that angst.............I doubt it ever will
If you still are unstable then for sure a clean install is the best way to go.....run some checks first though and be certain all the components are OK
Check memory and other hardware components...plenty of benchmarking software out there for that
When you are happy no little green men live inside the case then reinstall..........

Honestly, a reinstallation of Windows would fix all of these problems, make your computer faster, and get rid of all the extra gunk you might have, malware or otherwise. Most tech support (well speaking for myself and my colleagues at Dell CBG) don't recommend an OSRI to get you off the phone - we recommend an OSRI because you have too many problems that are frankly too hard to fix, or because it is the best resolution. We also recommend an OSRI for malware issues, but that's because we aren't trained in malware removal and may mess up your system more (see VundoFix) - but that's beside the point.
Spooler subsystem app not working, other apps freezing, lost desktop themes, not being able to access "printers and faxes" from the CP, on and on.
So once you OSRI (because that's what you're going to end up doing) take care of your computer. And if a problem comes up, fix it then rather than letting "Spooler subsystem app not working, other apps freezing, lost desktop themes, not being able to access "printers and faxes" from the CP, on and on." pile up on you.

Whatever you decide to do: scan your backed up data with at least one good antivirus (my choice, without any doubt, is Avast) and one good antispyware, like Malwarebytes which is recommended in the malware forum of G2G. Do that before you reintroduce them to your computer.

I apologise to every Tech Support Person that I have cast nasterstions...oops aspersions upon
I also do computer support..ON SITE...face to face... and have had to clean up after some of the not so professional of your species.
I think we all agree any repair will be far less satisfactory than a clean install given the potential trash already accumulated in the system
have a good day
