The exact error is
"SPOOLSV.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows - u will need to restart the program
an error log has been created"

The service pack when it gets killed gives this eror
"The remote procedured call failed"

I tried to find the log where the error has been written but could not find it

thanx
