Watch for hung print jobs. I renamed it to spoolsv0.exe and the problem went away. This file is a Windows core system file and by default, loads automatically at system startup. If it is the Spoolerserver, a propable cause is the driver for a disconnected printer (notably HP) still polling said printer.
If somebody could tell me why this is happening cos' I don't believe that it's due to my printer (Lexmark 1100 series) Tumppi Control Panel/Printers and Faxes/Right Click on the Microsoft the spoolsv.exe can hog up the cpu to 100% when invalid printer tasks are waiting somewhere on your pc or network, doesnt have to be in the printer's tasklist itself, but If spoolsv.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files", the security rating is 64% dangerous. rmann II Its easy to fix the problem of using the CPU for 100% rmann Thank You Very Much!!! http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/spoolsv.exe.html
It is a file with no information about its developer. If you don't printing anything, I suggest ending the process. Now turn your printer back on and restart the service.
it worked! Then...hence the 3 time rule again and again and well, you get the hint. It shouldn't be hogging up all the resources! Turning it on has no effect on the RAM or CPU usage.
X13 This "spoolsv.exe" program does nothing to my computer. You were right in 100%!!! For now i have put it in Quarantine Lindsay The only thing I wold like to know is why a "spooler" has to access the internet? What was the globe instrument in Vostok 1?
Backdoors install harmful programs on your computer that usually disguise themselves by taking the same or similar names as existing system processes. http://www.file.net/process/spoolsv.exe.html If the above steps fail to resolve the issue, it may be due to outdated hardware or software. so i said no, checked it out- came here and relised my cpu was at 80 so i went on my firewall and blocked a few projrams and its between 10-49 LEK when is using 100%+- of your processor is because the print processor is halted.
Deleted job and all well again. i can't get rid of this file or whatever it is! Follow these steps: Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Therefore the technical security rating is 22% dangerous, however you should also read the user reviews.

Thank you Sung. Alex,sun Taiwan This is a Windows File - In my case it was when I installed a Anti-Virus (Panda). I havent got MS image writer.

Thought it was a virus or something. Patty In my case there were files waiting in the MS image writer in the print queue. As far as I know, a spooler puts into memory printing jobs so that the printer can print without locking up the computer that is printing. You can turn off printer spooling in printer properties.
i cant even serv my files on the irc!!~ hellboy Spoolsv.exe is just a file that keeps windows to print stuff, if you have a wireless network or so or cancelled Go into that and delete all of your printing jobs you have in their, because they'll never print, cause you don't have a printer, even if you do have a printer, Burns The file is from microsoft Windows, anyway I used Xsoftspy (detector for spyware) and it gave me the following: Vendor: Proxy-Agent.g / Type: File / Category: Trojan / Object: C:\Windows\System32\spoolsv.exe The process starts when Windows starts (see Registry key: MACHINE\Run, win.ini, Run, Winlogon\Shell, RunOnce, MACHINE\RunOnce, Userinit, DEFAULT\Run).
