On a W2K machine I had a virus MSBLAST.EXE. I followed instructions on the Symantec site and removed it. Installed Microsoft Security Patch too. I reinstalled W2K.
When I try to reinstall the printer which was installed, I get a message that it cannot install a printer because a subsystem is not available.
I often get messages from SPOOLSV.EXE that it has generated errors and will be closed by windows.You need to restart the programm.

Help !

Hey, I was reading the above info and it seems that I am having the similar issues. I have tried the above and nothing seems to work for me.

I am running Windows Server 2000 with no office products. I have 23 printers that are in the print server 2 gig of physical memory with 1.5 ratio for page file virtual memory. 100 user base.

It seems that the system generates an error spoolsv.exe Application Error: goes on to say that it could not read from the referenced memory could not be read click ok to terminate.

I have search High and Low from google to microsoft KB
Have tried everthing from chk for virus found none
