im having a problem with spoolsv.exe...it always tries to access the internet and i always deny its access... my main problem is that i dont know how to remove it... Also, when i boot windows up, when the Windows loading screen comes up with the status bar underneath, the "Home Edition" phrase doesnt come up at all. And, ther is some kind of malicious software inside my computer (?) and when i go to empty recycle bin it says "are you sure you want to delete WINDOWS." And sometimes my Recycle Bin stays full yet nothing is inside and when i try to empty it, it says cannot delete Dd5... please help me out!! here is my HJT log

Hello macho_maggot and welcome to the BC Hijackthis forum. I do not see any problems in this log. It is clean.

Spoolsv.exe is a valid windows file. It is used by MS Office and any printers to spool print jobs. If it is deleted it could cause alot of problems. Leave it be. Depending on the printer and/or version of the file and depending if any printers are shared it can attempt to contact the internet. If it is not desired to have this occur then block it with a firewall.

Cheers.
