Question about PC Desktops
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.
