Volume Shadow Copy Service error

I am currently running Windows Server 2008. Recently I am unable to access my VSS copys to files and I get these errors every time i attempt to create a new shadow copy:

Now i belive the hr result is access denied but I'm not totaly sure.
Error Code: 8193
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80070057.

Operation:
Gathering Writer Data
Executing Asynchronous Operation

Context:
Execution Context: Requestor
Current State: GatherWriterMetadata

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Error code: 13

Volume Shadow Copy Service information: The COM Server with CLSID {faf53cc4-bd73-4e36-83f1-2b23f46e513e} and name VSSEvent cannot be started. [0x80070057]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Error code: 8193

Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine QueryStatus OUT param. hr = 0x8000ffff.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now that class ID does not exist in the COM system how can I force it to recreate itself?
Any suggestions would be great.


Thanks,
Grant
