Just clean it up, cut its nuts off and sew it up.
What makes you think it's broken?  You could examine the file with a hex viewer like that in IrfanView, replace the file with a fresh or backup copy, or recompile it from source; but assuming it's crashing, it might just be some bad control data around (e.g. if you were printing when your PC crashed) or a malformed print spool file you can delete.
     Just run your antivirus programs (see sourceforge and avg for free ones) as usual, but try 'use printer offline' and editing the spool list (print queue, whatever you want to call it) or running debug software to see what file goes in juuust before spooldr.sys crashes.

You miscategorized the problem as being for all PC Desktops when spooldr.sys is specific to something you hold more uniquely, by the way; a particular version of Windows (not XP) or your HP printer.

I am connected to internet but get error 651


I am assuming you have purchased a new pc with Windows7 and have a DSL internet connection. If so the following tutorial should prove useful. This is a common problem and known bug within the Windows7 framework that they are working to correct. Keep in mind that this fix is only applicable for the Windows7 operating system.

"The RAS PPPoE driver file "raspppoe.sys" found under c:windowssystem32drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, we can work around the problem simply by renaming the original raspppoe.sys file to something like "raspppoe_orig.sys" copying a working file from a Windows Vista system. If you do not have access to a Windows Vista system click here to download raspppoe.sys file (unzip)."


http://www.windowsreference.com/windows-7/error-651-with-pppoe-connections-in-windows-7/

Once downloaded and unzipped you may rename the old rasppoe file as mentioned above by right clicking the icon and choosing 'rename'. Then copy the new rasppoe file you downloaded into the applicable folder. You will find this file in the following directory C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers. Bear in mind, when searching for the file inside the drivers folder, the .sys file extension may or may not be included in the actual name. If the original file is named 'rasppoe' without the .sys file extension in the name, leave this file extension off when renaming and copying as well.

Hey I am using windows 7 build 7600 and recently my AVG flagged atapi.sys as a virus and I forced removal without thinking. On boot my windows now fails to boot and goes into boot recovery, it fixes the...


that could be a false positive form AVG .. if thats the case then the problem should go away on your next AVG update .. but it could also be a virus that rewrites the atapi.sys file ...look to see if the date changes on that file (look for size changes as well) .. if it does change dates . then look for other programs that have the same date .. check them out .. you may find a cloaking virus ... you can restore your system back to a time when you didnt have the problem .. i had some trouble with false positives from another virus checker (it was a beta also (kaspersky ) .. now i am using avast ..it seems to work great with win7 ...

What say you?


Hi beester,

The file you specified is a driver for a logitech webcam and there is a possibility that it's corrupted, try to boot you computer into Safe Mode(if your running windows of course press F8) and try to uninstall or upate the driver for your webcam and check if you will still receive a BSOD(blue screen of death) on your computer. hope this solution fixes your computer problem.

You can also check this link and see if this will solve your problem if the above solution fails; http://www.runscanner.net/files/sys/lv321av/lv321av.sys.aspx
