I finally found the problem, the registry key for the printer pointing to the
drivers got corrupted:

Start - Run - Regedit - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - SYSTEM - ControlSet001 -
Control - Print - Environments - Windows NT x86 - Version -3 - Remove
All Printers From Here (Delete HP First See If that resolves the problem)

That should fix all issues to the SubSystem App crashing, after you delete
the registry entry, start the printer spooler and reinstall the printer
drivers, most likely Vista will have these drivers built in.

I'm getting the same thing. As we near a large rollout of Vista I have
started to notice this problem on my own workstation. I have has the same
configuration for quite some time now and this comes out of the blue?

I have HP Photosmart 8250 Printer. Windows Vista has its own drivers, after
initial install of OS everything was fine, only 2 weeks back it just stopped
working. I've uninstalled every application and windows updates. I'm back to
square one, I still get error everytime I enable the Printer Spooler service.
Can anyone tell me what i'm missing, i've deleted all printers, cached files,

The only thing I haven't done is re-install the OS.
