It was taking up 120meg but now only 11. Funny that my printer spooler wants to randomly send information over the internet :D. What do you know about spoolsv.exe: How would you rate it: < Please select > important for Windows or an installed application (++) seems to be needed (+) neither dangerous nor CPU Utilization went to 0 and all is now working great.
What is spoolsv.exe? Unable to delete printer itself and rebooting made no difference. now my cpu isnt running at 100 percent now, and my printer now works. Worked instantly for me. his explanation
This resolved my issue. Shelly Takes control of every laser printer in my school.Connects to the internet.... Wise spoolsy.exe is standard system print spooler for windows. Since this file is a system file and installed with Microsoft Windows, it is not known to be dangerous.
if you kill or delete, you cant print ss It depends on your printer. LEK when is using 100%+- of your processor is because the print processor is halted. I basically went and deleted all printers within the print spool folder and then I change the registry. Once they clear the cpu will be freed.
It is also the printer spooler. deleted them and it cleared up Robbie The suggestion above to go to Admin/Services/Print Spooler and start/stop it was exactly what I needed. Then I entered this website and risked to do what You've said, because I was in need to restore my laptop CPU power. http://www.exe-error-fixes.com/deal-high-cpu-usage-spoolsvexe-problem/ I found an artical that advised there may be something "jamming" up the printer spooler.
Victor What's the deal with it trying to access the internet... By the way, AGOBOT often also infects csrss.exe... It takes my PC like 5 minutes just to load up windows explorer DELETE IT IF YOU CAN!!!

That's ridiculous! My Mcafee VirusScan just notified me that it had changed since I accessed the internet thru dial up. BAH! Many of the tasks are required for performing specific operations on your machine and removing them may cause your program or entire computer to malfunction or reboot.
The program has no visible window. Additionally, make sure you have an antivirus protection program on the computer and that it is up-to-date. Like me for instance i got hacked earlyer. But then I read a few of these threaded articles and then went to my printer status window and found that indeed 1 had 4 print job in queue for the
The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. I cancelled that job and now have spoolsv.exe running but taking up virtually no cpu - looks like the one in capitals is the one to watch out for, the lower Yes, you can safely end this process. And where can i turn off the spooler?
Casey Simple shut off the automatic shared printer and file detection, than the CPU-usage will be reduced to nearly 0% Baldur It clogs your system up bigtime. And it worked perfectly!!!! First, get some breathing room - go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services and stop the Print Spooler.
Tom spoolsv.exe is a Windows operation bundled with a trojan/spyware. I've been involved in tech support roles for more than 15 years and understand the pains and frustrations associated with broken computers. BluHog This file was running 90-99% CPU, and found it was because I had jobs waiting in an PDF print queue zippy It was in fact a job in the queue Tim I get a spoolsv.exe error occasionally and it deletes all my printers I've found spoolsv.exe in for locations on the computer including system32 and Ntservicepack folders should it be installe
sookme Like Tommy I had the CPU takeover problem, it was because of print jobs on the MICROSOFT OFFICE WRITER, not the standard printer. I have 2 PCs that are running slowly. Windows will not let you delete it so you will have to over write it from your Reinstallation CD or copy from another computer service pack 2 will not work on i dont even have any printers or fax connected to my CPU!!
Deleted document in queue and all is calm. This is a core Windows process so disabling it from the Task Manager may result in a critical failure causing the system to automatically reboot. Delete the document in the print queue of Microsoft Office Document Image Writer, and the problem will be solved. I fixed the source of the problem which was the old DBASE program printing to a good printer at a now non-existent printer port wolfi remowe windows imige writer from printers
Johnny It was taking up 98% of my CPU, so after reading these comments I checked the printer waiting list. Check your print jobs.It also appears in the Windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$ directory and Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 directory on my system. Lorin Its easy to fix the problem of using the CPU for 100%; just delete the print jobs you have in the printer list and you will see that the CPU I allowed it to run.
Siddiq Everybody READ, look at your processes, there may be two of the spoolsv. uses remaining CPU space. Often I"ll be playing a game or something and the computer slows down to 10%. Spooler is using over 50+ percent of CPU time and there are no print jobs waiting to be spooled.
screw it. White Hawk I have 2 1 in the C/windows/system32, the other in c/windows/servicepackfiles/i386, I think the second one is also valid... Added by the CIADOOR.121 VIRUS!
