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. k_g2000
Thanks for the input guys muppetmark your right spoolsv.exe is part of windows xp, spoolsvv.exe I'm not so sure, I've terminated it from my processes as it was using a considerable amount of mem. currently downloading hijackthis Thanks again guys
Hi guys, got more problems Just registered for a forum, and when sent a confirmation email I was told that my email was allready in use. Also with the given password and login name I can't login. Even when requesting a new password. I am told with the email that A Web user from 184.108.40.206 has just requested a Confirmation Code to change the password. This is not my ip addreess!!!
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. k_g2000
