I sometimes get a prompt from my Nortons internet security that my, Microsoft printer spooler service is attempting to access the internet.
Firstly what is the printer spooler, and why does the prompt continually keep coming back untill I restart the pc.
This happens once every couple of weeks or so and is one of those annoying problems that gives me the hump. I appreciate any help to solve this niggly problem, thanks.

Are you on a local network?

Does it tell you what site it wants to visit?

Why not block its access and tell NIS to remember this answer?
