Norton IS 2005 & MS Printer Spooler Service

  Bosa 15:33 27 Aug 2005

Anyone having bother with this? How do you fix?

I am having a pop-up saying MS Printer Spooler Service (spoolsv.exe) is trying to connect to the internet and have to click allow, decline, etc. No matter which option I try it pops up again and again continuously for upto 12 times before it stops. I have tried all sorts in the settings to no avail.

I have 2 PCs and one printer (Epson) attached and any combination of other PC on/off and printer on/off causes the problem. Any ideas?

It is driving me nuts as it locks the machine up for a while until the pop-ups end.

Thanks in advance.

Did you tick the box to remember the answer you gave?

There is no tick-box (just checked).

I can make the fault occur at anytime by doing a cut/copy and paste when it comes up EVERY time. Weird!
