I've been having the same problem. I, too, have a TinyPC pre-installed with Windows ME:
1. The first PGCPC/SPOOLER boot errors started occurring about a year ago. I used PowerQuest "SecondChance" to go back to an earlier version - that fixed it for a few months.
2. When it started occurring again, I installed SusE Linux 8 (in dual-boot mode). My intention was to use Linux as a backup while I salvaged Windows. Imagine my surprise that simply installing Linux actually fixed the problem! For a few months, anyway...
3. Recently, it started happening again. Every boot was a blue screen, with the "PGCPC" or "SPOOLER" error.
From a boot diskette, I used c:\windows\system\msconfig to remove vetsup.vxd - it didn't help.
Then, from "safe mode", I de-installed PowerQuest SecondChance. That did it! Windows ME is booting happily again!
It's definitely time to think about upgrading WinME to Win2k Professional or XP...
