    Hi, I am having an issue using backup software (Dantz Retrospect) and
    it has
    to do with the Volume Shadow Copy Service. When I attempt an open file
    backup, I get an error saying permission denied and this event is
    logged:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: VSS
    Event Category: None

    I am thinking it's because the "MS Software Shadow Copy Provider" is
    unable
    to start. I have reinstalled COM+ and reregistered DLL's from posts I
    have
    read, but it still won't start.
    This is the message I get when I attempt to start it:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Service Control Manager
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 7009
    Date: 12/9/2005

    Description:
    Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the MS Software Shadow Copy
    Provider service to connect.

    Any help aside from reinstalling would be greatly appreciated!

    Also, when I go into Component Services, I do not see the Shadow Copy
    Provider loaded under the COM+ applications... I really do not want to
    reinstall XP, but it looks like all I can do at this point.
