Hi all,

i have a strange issue with Spooler Subsystem App. which is :
1. it consumes a lot of memory and crashes many applications
2. Mainly, it becomes annoying when using word application. It keeps pointer constantly processing for something. Actually there is nothing to process i.e. not fetching data from anywhere else or not doing mail merge, etc... although it remains on high consumption and
crashes the word quiet often.

I wonder if anybody has faced same issue? any solutions to this..

look forward to hearing from you
