Spooler Subsystem APP

  mctrout 18:40 16 Mar 2010

For the last week every time I start my PC a message comes up, Spooler Substem APP stopped & was closed down. I read somewhere that it is a virus that causes it, but my AV program Bullguard never seems to notice it. Can anyone please let me know how to gey rid of this . Thanks Mac

lol,the link works for me anyway.there may be another possible fix if you read the whole thread.apologies if you've already tried them.if you think it may be malware related then try downloading,updating and then running malwarebytes free as it won't do you any harm to have a scan anyway click here

Thanks for the answers, I tried them but I get the same message. Also I get a message from Microsofts DEP. Is it worth running DEP as I have an AV program already. Thanks Mac

That link to Bullguard sorted that out first time. Thanks a lot. Now Blender 3D has stopped working. Still onwards & upwards, I think I will junk Vista its too much trouble . Thanks Mac

No worry, Blender is working alright now. When I uninstalled blender to see if a new version would work, I left some files of it on my PC, I cleared them up & away we go.I should be more careful when deleting files. Thanks Mac
