    Snipping Tool/Sticky Notes Cannot Start

    I just noticed today that when I try to run the Snipping Tool, I get this
    error:

    THE SNIPPING TOOL IS NOT WORKING ON YOUR COMPUTER RIGHT NOW. RESTART YOUR
    COMPUTER, AND THEN TRY AGAIN. IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS, CONTACT YOUR SYSTEM
    ADMINISTRATOR.

    I've been running Vista Ultimate for about a year now, and installed SP1
    this week.

    Restarting doesn't fix, I've also tried adding/removing the TABLET PC
    OPTIONAL COMPONENTS in the Windows Features On/Off control panel. This
    doesn't help. I even went to the extreme of uninstalling SP1 to no avail.

    I also notice that I get the same error as above with Sticky Notes:

    Sticky Notes IS NOT WORKING ON YOUR COMPUTER RIGHT NOW. RESTART YOUR
    COMPUTER, AND THEN TRY AGAIN. IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS, CONTACT YOUR SYSTEM
    ADMINISTRATOR.(80004005)

    And Windows Journal too!

    WINDOWS JOURNAL CANNOT START. THERE WAS AN ERROR INITIALIZING INKING
    COMPONENTS.

    The ONLY function in the Tablet PC that works is Tablet PC Input Panel. Well
    it runs, but neither of the TOOLS or HELP pull down menus work.

    I've seen others with the same Snipping Tool error while searching google,
    but never found a fix. For some people they had to reinstal the whole OS,
    but even then the errors came back after a while.

    HELP!

    Make sure you have Tablet PC Optional Components feature turned on.

    Where do you do this? As mentioned (see above from my original post), I have
    tried adding/removing the Tablet PC Optional Componenets in the "Turn
    Windoes Features On or Off".
    I've removed, it then rebooted, added it, rebooted same problem. Is there
    another place to do this?

    I am using the Windows Firewall, and I run Windows Defender and Housecall
    online Anti Virus when I think I may have viruses.
    I don't run any full time AV (they are junk), and haven't had a virus show
    up in 10 years.

    I may have fixed it.
    I opened MS Outlook and rand the OFFICE DIAGNOSTICS, and that seem to have
    fixed the problem.
    Now let's see how long it lasts.

    Why do you say that?

    and haven't had a virus show

    You have been fortunate but you are taking an unnecessary risk.
    It possible your current problem is the result of a virus.

    Re: Snipping Tool/Sticky Notes Cannot Start

    I don't mean to sound like a noob or anything but I can't seem to find the Snipping Tool on my computer. I looked in the start menu and I searched the Hard Drive. I found nothing. Can someone help?

    Hah, no, I've use my machine 12hrs a day, and have been for more than 10
    years surfing everywhere and I see no need for full time av. Why? Because I
    can spot malware a mile away! I know exactly what should be in my task
    manager and registry.

    In fact, most of my friends run full time antivirus programs, yet when I
    visit, I usually find 2 or 3 viruses or trojans on their machines that their
    av programs have missed.

    If I suspect something looks suspicious on my machine, I will run housecall
    online scanner, and something like super anti spyware. 99.9% of the time
    they find nothing. AV software just bogs down the OS, and can cause more
    trouble than they fix. My sis works as a tech support person for a computer
    company, and she said 70% of their tech support problems are due to full
    time AV software.

    It's just like anything, you just have to put some thought and effort into
    what you are doing.

    And it turned out my problem wasn't due to a virus. It was some sort of
    glitch with Vista SP1 and Office/Outlook (which is remedied now).
