Hi guys
On the last few times on booting up my machine I have been connected automaticly to my internet connection and zonealarm alert hes prompted me for permission for this application(spoolsvv.exe) to access the internet. I wonder if anyone could tell me what this application is and why it has suddenly appeared as I have made no changes to my current set up. I have run norton, adaware and spybot search and destroy and my machine is clean as a whistle so I'm hoping this is not a virus.
Thanks for any input.

Thanks for all the help muppetmark.
The links you provided gave me the info required to fix the problem.
Spoolsvv.exe is certainly a trojan and have have now got rid.
I think the ip add. maybe the mailing server or similar which my isp uses. I think maybe the forum I was tring to register at was having problems so I have emailed the forum admin. and am waiting for a reply. I think paraniod may be an appropiate term(it was late).

Anyway thanks again.
