I know that there are tons of sites about the problem with spoolsv.exe errors, but none of the people out there seemed to
have the same situation as me...
For some time now, I've been encountering some strange behavior of my system.I
use the standard Win7 wi-fi connection manager. When I launch the system, the wi-fi card gets connected to the router and I
can browse the Internet. However, the icon of the manager shows the signal strength bars with a blue circle (the circle that
indicates loading sth everywhere else in Windows) which usually tells me that it is still connecting to the network. The
circle doesn't spin, it's just stuck. Clicking on the icon doesn't bring up the available network list, so it just doesn't
Also, the system cannot play sounds. Well, it surely cannot play sound from the Internet, like
Grooveshark or Youtube. Music on Grooveshark doesn't even start, Youtube videos go silent. Actually I haven't tested if it
cannot play sth e.g. from iTunes, but one time when I wanted to restart the computer short after startup, it showed that
explorer is not responding, with the task "playing the log out tune" currently being performed, so maybe the same thing with
Then, after some time (usually it's 10-20 minutes after the I turn on the computer) a
notification window is shown telling me that a program needs my action and when I accept it, the message appears about
C:WindowsSystem32spoolsv.exe experiencing a runtime error and requesting the Runtime to terminate it, or sth like this - so
just the standard spoolsv.exe error message. And then... voila! The wi-fi icon shows just plain signal strtength bars and
responds to my actions, and I can play sounds.
The information that I use a Lexmark X4975 wi-fi printer might be
of some significance. I don't remember now exactly (and don't have any way to check it) but I'm nearly sure that the
situation with the printer is quite similar - before the error I can't use it, and after - I can.
What might be
the cause of all this and how to fix it? I just don't want to waste 20 min every time I turn the computer on...
EDIT !!!: Just now, I had another case of the problem, probably the largest in scale: as I turned my computer on, I
couldn't run certain programs (iTunes, WMP, but also Windows Desktop Gadgets, Windows Anytime Upgrade and some other services
from the Control Panel). However, I was able to listen to music over the Internet...Then after - again - sth like 20 minutes
of work, the error popped up, and all the apps I launched before and that didn't actually open, appeared all at once!It
certainly has sth to do with the spoolsv error, but there might be some other problems involved...This is no good, people.
