    How to resolve the error with spoolsv.exe in Windows

    Presence of the Trojan horse "Graybird-A."

    The print spooler may be the victim of the trojan "Graybird-A." His whereabouts are usually found in the Windows Registry keys at system boot.

    CITATION:
    Troj / Graybird-A copies itself to the Windows system folder with the file name spoolsv.exe and setting the following registry entries so that the Trojan is executed when Windows starts:

    HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run \ spoolsv
    HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ RunServices \ spoolsv
    HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run \ spoolsv

    An entry "Run" will be added to the win.ini file, which will cause the execution of Trojan horse to restart Windows.

    Spool by blocking the virus.


    Your print spooler service does not start. You may be a victim of a bad turn your antivirus software that wrongly regards as an intruder. The problem has been met with the resident "navapsvc" Norton AntiVirus.

    • Stop your Internet connection,

    • Disable your antivirus,

    • Start the print spooler.

    • Reactivate your antivirus,

    • Start your internet connection

    Re: How to resolve the error with spoolsv.exe in Windows

    I found the fix!!! If you go here there is a .msi that cleans the printers up, reboot and the print spooler problem is no more. Only drawback is you have to add the printers back. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2000007

    Also, I fixed this on the 24th then my user ran the Vista SP2 updates, this must have over written some .dll (or something) Print spooler stopped running again...ran this & fixed it back up.

    Good thing wolfeee, good to know you fixed your problem .

    There are many issue that cause error spoolsv.exe in Windows :
    This issue can occur if a printer driver that is installed on the computer is damaged.

    This situation can occur if BitWare for Windows is installed. The current versions of BitWare are 3.30 and 7.0, which are not fully compatible with the versions of Windows that are listed in the "Applies to" section of this article. To check to see if BitWare is running, look for instances of Bwagent.exe or Bwprnmon.exe in Task Manager.

    And more
