It is a printer driver click here Are you sure it is trying to connect to the internet and not to your network? Maybe it is looking for an update!

Thanx guys, i have disabled "printer spooler" from my services tab.
My printer still works it just doesn't queue docs.
But it's not trying to phone home anymore - where ever that might be.
