B.R.A.S.H. Jean I am a computer programmer and I am positive I know what i'm talking about....Spoolsv is not a dangerous file it commonly used for printing, it can also slow down If it is the print driver, you will need to change it. Dee Microsoft image writer on my computer was shared and there were two files to be printed on it, possibly from someone on my network.
Mountaintop sea - Characteristics regarding tides, outflow and microclimate Time taken to print numbers New girl gamer in our D&D group is causing weird tension - what to do? Canceled the job and cpu usage instantly dropped. Therefore the technical security rating is 22% dangerous, however you should also read the user reviews. rmann II Its easy to fix the problem of using the CPU for 100% rmann Thank You Very Much!!!
thanks for everyones help. Was planning to format my PC. Checked the printer and there was one print job waiting, cancelled it, and cpu went down to 4%!! Just block it.
Now turn your printer back on and restart the service. yannickvdb I had the same problem , high cpu (98-99%) all used by spoolsv.exe I removed the printer tasks and it seems fixed now. You can use this cleaner to stop viruses, errors and faults with your system. I deleted it and no more spooler hogging my resourses......
Shaun Lee Well my norton internet security keeps asking if i want to let it access the internet, i said always allow, then never allow, and it just keeps popping up there was a print job waiting on one of the other printers. So get something to scan it with and if it says its a problem get rid of it. antivirus programs can detect and clean this file if it has become infected.
When not default it is fine. And where can i turn off the spooler? I checked and rechecked and my system was clean. another windows silly pack problem i thing !!!
Sylvester Windows system file for printing Lorenc Solution for XP users with High CPU Usage in Spoolsv.exe kenny It is a windows file. Not the answer you're looking for? Do you have additional information? If spoolsv.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files", the security rating is 64% dangerous.
Right click each printer, fax or writer with pending jobs and hit delete all jobs. rmann's workaround to stop service and manually delete files in spool folder fixed the issue. Executable files may, in some cases, harm your computer. Sure enough there was something sitting there from yesterday.
In my case it was for MS Image Writer pending "Print" file. After you have stopped this process, leave the Service window open. Scan it for duplicate files right now and free up gigabytes in three simple clicks.
MS Spooler server is ok, anything else is not.
and to make sure scan your computer. CPU Utilization went to 0 and all is now working great. Jay probably just a Windows file but it slows the system better have the .bat "BAT file 1st line (net stop spooler) 2nd line (del /q %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.*) 3rd line (net start If you have any questions feel free to email me at "[email protected]" Ben White there are two immages with that name: one is safe and should be kept if you have
Like me for instance i got hacked earlyer. The file is not a Windows core file. Restart the Printer Spooler in Services. or PhD applications in sciences/engineering?
Drel This SHOULD NOT use your CPU if you are not printing, but a worm can "Hijack" this name and it depends on what it is doing, if it only works Thanks. Use your antivirus software, update it, and remove this suck HeyBaby If it tries to access the 'net/network but you don't have a network printer, it's a bit suspicious. I would delete it and it would come back in a few mins doing the same thing.
