I have a Windows system that I can only run in Safe Mode now, but I'd like to run some additional services that don't come in that mode by default. The most important one is the print spooler. I've run the following command which I found in various guides on how to do this: REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network\Spooler" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service" But when I run "net start spooler", I get this: "System error 1068 has occurred. The dependency service or group failed to start." So I'm trying to start all of the spooler's dependencies, which according to its properties, are "HXXP" and "RPC." I assume RPC is RpcsS, which is already started. I don't know how to start HXXP though. I attempted it by running these commands: REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network\HXXP" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service" However, when I type "net start hxxp", I get this error: "System error 646 has occurred. The driver was not loaded because the system is booting into safe mode." Can anyone help? Please note that I wasn't able to type the actual name of the "HXXP" service due to filtering. I think you know what I meant though.
