Winspoole.exe

I am doing a BSOD report. This is the process that is always running when the BSOD occurs. I have Googled and it comes up as a trojan. Will someone who can give definite confirmation please post. I do not want to upset the OP needlessly.

Here you go, Richard.

First of all, is that the correct spelling, or should it be Winspool.exe?

Secondly, can you link to the thread?

The spelling is a copy and paste from the Dump report and yes I can give a link

When I found the potential problem, I told the poster to run a scan and malwarebytes. Just now it is completed. I did not even look at it yet, myself

Scan results are bad. I just looked.

I would say that this is more than likely malware. I see what you mean about the spelling, however the only results that Google can come up with using that particular spelling is this thread and the thread over in VF. All other results are with the spelling that both Jacee and I suspected.

TY Guy for your help. I know that you are correct. I did not want to alarm the OP, unless 100% sure. Rep for you. Jacee ( posted on Vista), is also helping may not get any rep, because she is so good, that I have done so not long ago.
