I used my nieces account and tried the net start spooler command; got the same error message 1058.
I also checked the services and they all seemed to match the settings I changed things to last night.
I set up a new account... it took quite a while (several minutes) to create it - seemed very much longer than at work where I set up accounts on standalone machines for new users.
I looked at services, they seemed to match those established yesterday.
I tried the net start spooler command and got a NEW error as follows:
System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied.
I'll try to install printer but I don't have much hope.
