The Lady's computer keeps freezing up. It is a Compaq, less than a year old, and when I open the task manager, a program called spoolsv.exe is using all the available memory.
I've tried everything I know, uninstalled programs, tried to adjust settings, gone back to an earlier restore point. Nothing works yet. I know that spooler programs are used in conjunction with printers, but I'm wondering if there is something I am missing.
Compaq tech support ain't a lot of help. Anyone out there have any ideas?
Update: Something called Microsoft Office Image Writer had a print job pending. A demo page. Why the hell it didn't print the damned page is beyond me, (what with a perfectly good printer hooked to the printer port)? As it turns out, there was also a fax pending. A fax? Okay, fine. That got deleted too. Anyway, the machine is better now, running at a small percentage of available memory. It's fixed.
