event log message:
Faulting application spoolsv.exe v 5.2.3790.1830 faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.1830, fault address 0x00030345

Also recieved a Dr. Watson message:
The application C:\Windows\system32\spoolsv.exe generated an application error.
The error occurred on 2/17/06. The exception generated was C0000005 ad address 7c830345 (ntdll!wcscpy)

Please help. I'm not sure what is going on. The only difference was I installed updates this morning through
automatic updates, but none seem to hav anything to do with the print spooler. There are no other error messages
that are being generated. RPC services seem to be fine.
