Hi...Yesterday, one of the computers on the network at work stopped printing after clicking a "malware" popup. I checked the printers and they have all disappeared. I tried to add just one and the computer says that the spooler has stopped working. I checked the spooler service and it was indeed off. I started it and checked the printer section. Blank still and just as I tried to "add printer" the spooler stopped again. I've run Norton's, MalwareBytes and found nothing. Oh...btw, when I first came over to the computer, a malware program was running (Malware defender) and telling me that nothing could be run because they were infected with the blaster worm 32. Found the culprit in the startup on a safemode boot, disabled it and deleted the defender file. Thought that would take care of it, but it didn't.
Thanks in advance
