Spoolsv.exe wants access to internet

Hello everyone,

I have windows XP and have zone alarm running all the time.

Tonight for the first time ever spoolsv.exe asked for permission to access the internet.

I know spoolsv.exe is something to do with the printer driver, so why would it want to access the internet?

Should I be suspicious?

Just deny it access and forget about it.
