Software Shadow Service Headache

I have a client whose event log is filled with DCOM and service control
manager errors related to the Software Shadow Service (as pasted below).

- and -

When I try to start the Software Shadow Service manualy, I get a dialog
box that shows "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or
control request in a timely fashion."

It was my understanding that the Software Shadow Service was pretty much
"optional," only used by backup, but that appears not to be the case.
This client's log fills with these errors (repeatedly) during a defrag:

Here's 1-of-2:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: DCOM
Event Category: None
Event ID: 10005
Date: 10/29/2003
Time: 2:47:36 PM
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

request in a timely fashion. " attempting to start the service SwPrv with
arguments "" in order to run the server:

and here's 2-of-2:

Event Type: Error

Event ID: 7009
