"Continually running"...many services run or stay in a run state as reflected by Task Manager.
What percentage of CPU resources is reflected for this service...right now (as reflected under Processes in Task Manager)?
I don't know why you want to cancel the process...that does nothing unless you attempting to print and want to stop it.
Maybe your printer needs new drivers (due to corruption or whatever)...that's the first step I would have tried (uninstall/reinstall).
"Spoolsv.exe - You cannot end this process from Task Manager. • The spooler service is responsible for managing spooled print/fax jobs."
Have you done a thorough malware check?
