The Spoolsv.exe executable file is responsible for handling the printing process on a Microsoft Windows system. Although this process is not crucial to run your Windows system, you must not terminate it until you think that it is causing problems on the system.

To fix spoolsv.exe application error, you will have to remove these files from the system. To do this, perform the following steps on your Windows XP computer:

  1. Open Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, select Administrative Tools and then select the Services option.
  2. In the Services management console, locate the Spooler services, right-click on it and select Stop.
  3. Next, open the C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers folder. (Here, we are assuming that your Windows is installed in the default C:\Windows folder)
  4. Delete all the .SHD and SPL files from this folder.
  5. Next, open the TMP folder and delete all old and unused files from this folder.
  6. Finally, restart the Spooler service from the Services management console.

    Note: If you are unable to delete the files in Normal Mode, then you may have to restart your computer in Safe Mode to delete the files. To start your PC in Safe Mode, press F8 at system restart and then select the Safe Mode option from Windows Advanced Options Menu.

    If deleting the files does not rectify the problem, you must perform a System Restore and rollback your system to the time prior to when the error started appearing on your computer.
  • It is important for you to know that application errors can also occur due to virus or spyware infections. In fact the Spoolsv.exe process is also a known backdoor vulnerability that can be planted on your computer for malicious purposes by a hacker.
*Your vote is highly be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Let me know if this fix your problem.

Best regards

My printer is sharp and it displayed on the screen fuser temp?


memory leak in spoolsv.exe I have a Windows 2003 Std sp2 server that is my primary print server for my entire company. We have 40+ different printers configured on it.

About 2 months ago, we started having performance issues with the box... the Print Spoooler service apparently has a memory leak and eventually consumes so much memory that the service stops responding. Print jobs accumulate in the queues but never get printed. As soon as we restart the spooler service, the jobs spit right out.

I've changed all of my printer ports to Standard TCP/IP ports per a suggestion I found on google, and installed SP2 per M$ suggestion, but nothing has helped. spoolsv.exe will go from 2MB to almost 500MB of memory in less than 12 hours.

I can use perfmon to monitor the memory usage and such, but so far I haven't found any utility that will identifiy EXACTLY what is causing the spooler service to leak memory like this. There are so many different drivers that use spoolsv.exe, how can I tell which one is the culprit?

Keep getting following error in Outlook 2007:


Fault bucket errors can be caused by many things. Sometimes it is a program that is using memory improperly. Also, it can be a hardware issue with the RAM itself.
You can Google RAM TEST and find programs that will test your RAM. MS makes one that you make a boot disk and run it.
Also, it never hurts to open your computer and make sure the RAM is seated properly. The last time I saw many random bucket errors it turned out to be 2 of 3 RAM sticks weren't properly seated.

You can use this app to uninstall your program completely even from the registry
