Sometimes when I start up my computer the 'Spool32' error appears on screen (as shown under). What is this and how do I cure it? I have used the 'debug' button but it keeps coming back and dose not fix the problem?

SPOOL32 caused an invalid page fault in
module SPOOL32.EXE at 017f:00402015.

If you do a search in google for spool 32 you will find many possible reasons.
The first two things I do - 1.If the printer is not shared - in printer properties - select print directly to the printer - so that spooling is not used - then delete printer and reinstall printer driver if problem persists. Deleting tmp files in the temp folder and any folders in the print spool folder can also help.
