Problems with locating the vspdfprsrv.exe: I have experienced the same vspdfprsrv.exe problem when booting the computer (Win 7 64 bit). But vspdfprsrv.exe isn't nessecerely located in the folder called "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Visage Software/PDF Printer/Options". (You can of course search for it and then delete it.) Therefore the best solution is to download the Autoruns tool from Microsoft Sysinternals and uncheck the vspdfprsrv.exe. Find it here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902 It's easy and it works. And you're in control of things.
