Can anyone shed some light onto what would cause and how to rectify this problem, a friends pc keeps showing the error "A required .DLL file,WINSPOOL.DRV ,was not found"
It is preventing him from opening a few programs including autoroute and photoimpression 2000.
The operating system he is running is windows ME

click here tells you where to find this file on the Windows CD and click here explains how to extract it.

However, a quick search on Google suggests that the presence of a trojan can cause this message. May be worth checking using The Cleaner click here
