That'll be the print spooler that has now hung in really annoying ways twice in the last few weeks. With files locked in place by the bloody printer isolation executable. For anyone else who suffers from this, it's a slight extension of the old fix to first stop the printer spooler service, then delete the printer spool files and restart the printer spooler service. Made more annoying because we now have to terminate the print isolation executable as well.

Before Microsoft decided to fix the horrible printing driver mess of their own making, in the most dumb way possible, the print spooler ran for a few years previously with only the very odd issue like this.
