I love the Vista snipping tool! I use it probably, every other day. But today I needed it and got 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.
Very odd. Of course I had about 12 tabs open in FireFox and three programs running so I resisted the urge to reboot and turned my attention to my friend Google. I ran across several blog posts about this very error. Those with solutions said to run the Microsoft Office Diagnostic tool and for some unknown reason that would fix it.
But alas it was not to be so for me. The only thing that correct my error was to do what the error said. Reboot the machine. *sigh* Oh well, it had been about 3 weeks since my last reboot so this must be my clue it was time. So, sometimes (although it’s rare) doing what the error message says may fix the problem.
