From the Answers That Work task list:
Windows NT Virtual DOS Machine – Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003. Whenever you start a DOS or 16-bit Windows program (Windows 3.1 software, or a program designed for Win9x/NT4 but which has a mixture of 32-bit and 16-bit programming code) under Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003, that 16-bit program gets run by the Windows NT Virtual DOS Machine, NTVDM, which basically emulates a DOS/16-bit environment so that your program can run. There will be a different instance of NTVDM running for each DOS/16-bit program that you run. (Note that NTVDM in turns starts a different process called WOWEXEC).
If NTVDM is in your Task List, you have a DOS or 16-bit program running. If it is twice in your Task List, you have two DOS or 16-bit programs running, etc... Leave alone; as soon as you close your running DOS/16-bit program(s), NTVDM will disappear from your Task List under Windows 2000/XP/2003 although it will remain in your Task List under Windows NT4 – under NT4 this is by design to ensure that the next 16-bit program you run loads faster.

Sometimes, your printer's little mind gets messed up. In order to set it right, unplug both the printer cable and the power cable for one minute, then plug them back in and turn the printer back on. If it was a problem with the printer memory, that will clear it. If it actually is a problem with your computer, the problem will return.
I can't turn on my printer because every time I log on, some program somewhere starts spooling printer documents.

I delete everything in the queue, and all the document names are "No Document Name"
I couldn't find anything about mirindaspd on google, it doesn't even offer an "are you sure didn't mean this instead" option like it does when you misspell something. So I don't know what to tell you about that.
On your spooling problem, you have no idea what program is trying to print?
Have you tried clicking the printer button on the taskbar (if you have one) and canceling all the print jobs in the cue?
