WIN XPMCE SP2
intel Celeron CPU
2.4 gig ram
radeon 9600 vc

Suddenly my computer is very slow to get up and running.
Task manager shows spoolsv.exe continuously trying to run
My performance is 100%

Finally I end task on the spoolsv.exe and it starts running

And I can't print anything from any program

waaaah :thumbsup:

Have you tried removing all the software for the printer and reinstalling. Make sure all the drivers are up to date.

Multi-Boot, Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 x64 & Windows 8 Pro x64

No I didn't reload it , the software is HP and it automatically checks for updates.
I guess I could uninstall and reinstall.

That takes about an hour and a half.

Martel,

Seems like some malicious code is running at the startup. Just do the following,

Start --> Run --> msconfig (Press Enter)

Msconfig will start and you'll see a tab labeled "Startup" at the top right side. Click on it and you'll see a list of programs start running when windows start.

Just locate any suspicious program and "UN-check" it, and also delete it from the directory mentioned there.

Restart computer.

If problem still exists, you need to scan your system for any virus infections.

I ran Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy

There were several items recognized and I deleted them.

Using the MSconfig I found several programs loading at startup and clicked them off.

I restarted and all is working fine.

I am not exactly sure what was at the root but I think I needed that general house cleaning.

Thanks :thumbsup:
