Hello,
I just discover that the process SPOOLSV.EXE (around 5000k) is taking 50% of memory.
Is that due to a spyware?
How to be rid off this?

Yhank you so much

As per Hardavenue.com..

What is it?
SPOOLer SerVice - spoolsv.exe

What does it do?
spoolsv.exe - The spooler service is responsible for managing spooled print/fax jobs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Virus Precaution:
The spoolsv.exe which is from Microsoft is located at c:\windows\System32\spoolsv.exe . We've been able to find several viruses that run as spoolsv to trick you.

Thanks,

I want to the "malware" and specially to "click here"
I done most of the recomandations; no spy found.

I also install again my printer (HP PSC 2210, with the last driver)
Unfortunately spoolsv.exe is always around 50% of memory.

What is the reason?

here is my HijackThis

spoolsv.exe takes more memory if there are some printing jobs pending.
Go to Control Panel->Printers and Faxes.
Check the status of all ur printers.

Tanks so much.
Have a nice day from sunny south of France
