environment:windows xp table pc with Service Pack 2 in English version, Office

professinal 2003 in English version.
sympton: the CPU usage of process of spoolsv.exe was extremely high almost
at 90%

continuously. This cause windows low performance and user can't do anything
at

that time. With further check, I foud that in this folder
system\spool\printers,

there are some temp file exist.The name of these files are 000002.SHD,
00002.SPL,

00003.SHD, 00003SPL, etc. First I stop the printer spooler service and delete

thest temp file. and then restart the spool service. It seems I solved the

problem. But after some time later, the temp file appears again, spoolsv.exe
CPU

usage also reach a high level. Slow performance come back again.
Question: How to solve this problem, and what's the reason.
Thank you very much.

Lasso, I am experiencing similiar issues on my PC. Task manager indicating
49% of system resources dedicated to print spooler. Causing significant slow
down. I am using Win XP pro. I could not find any virus, trojans or
spyware......... I am currently turning off print spooler services to
recapture lost resources (P4 3.2 mhz)

Searching for a solution....... may have to do a re-install?????
