spoolslv.exe eating 100% resources

On all windows 2000 machines on my network suddenly we found the spoolslv.exe is eating over 90% of resources.
We don't have any printer on this network.
I tried stopped print spool service.I helps sometime for a little period but comes back.

I tried "hijack this" & spybot to detect any torjan.
I have updated NAV & MACAFEE.
I also tried to install A pesonal firewall.
I format the machines.
Problems reappears after few hour of format perhaps as soon as I connected to Internet.

Stopping internat & LAN helps sometimes but not always.
Any luck Friends.
Regards,

Techxpert

Thanks,
"hijack this" is the programme as refrenced in one of the url you told.

I find the second one very useful,will give it a try.

Between this can you suggest a Personal Firewall for my PC that comes Free.

Thanks,

Zone Alarm (http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp) - I used the free version for years - seems quite solid.

spoolsv.exe eating your resources? STOP FEEDING HIM!

After reading/appling web solutions and spending about 8 frustrating hrs w phone tech "support", I stumbled across this simple solution on my own.

1. open your printers folder in control panel
2. identify printers w/ active print jobs (I had a "document image writer"? pre-installed on my computer which i had somehow printed to)
3. delete un-needed printer and/or print jobs
4. delete and reinstall required printers if neccessary

Hope this saves someone the time and troubles I endured.

Jeff
