    Windows vista showing "Interactive Services" error

    From last few days, my windows vista computer is continuously showing an "Interactive Services" error. When I check the details, it shows an error "
    Program: C:\Windows\System32\spoolsv.exe
    The application has requested the RunTime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information". Is there any method to fix this issue?

    Try to solve your problem by performing a System Restore. To do the same, navigate to Start >> Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> System Restore >> Choose appropriate time >> Next. If it failed to work then go to "Services" in Computer Management and Open "Properties" of a service called "Print Spooler Service". Now click on "Log on" tab and simply uncheck "Allow Service to Interact with Desktop".Your problem will be solved.

    Follow the below steps:
    Turn off Interactive Services Detection

    >>Right click on computer

    >>Services & Applications
    >>Locate "Interactive Services Detection"
    >>Right click on it, disable it
    Note: This is just a workaround to find what is causing the popup. Once you fix that, you can turn it back.
    To fix this problem, reset the print spooler.

    Disable it by going to Start | Run and type in services.msc to open up the Windows Services console.
    Double click on Interactive Service to view its properties
    Under Startup type, either select it to Manual to start when you need it or Disabled to never use it, personally, I would choose the latter
    Click on the Stop button to stop the service
