At the moment, everytime my print spooler starts up, it is immediately shut down by "data execution prevention"

problem is, it cannot be added to exceptions list because spoolersv.exe is a system file

Any help would be appreciated

I have already tried manually restarting the spooler, trying different "dep" settings, reinstalling the device driver for the printer, restarting the computer.

Sorry, spoolersv.exe isnt the process name, you may have a trojan/virus invading your system. The process that controls your printer spool is named spoolsv.exe :thumb:


Did you miss-type. :)



Welcome to the forums. :D
