Why do I get Spool32 error messages when I start my PC?

Spool32 has to do with your printer settings.
1. "Start|Settings|Printers". The Printers box will come up.
2. In this box, right click on your printer, select "Properties" from the drop-down window,
3. Click the "Spooling" button, near the bottom, and see if changing those settings fixes the problem.
4. If it doesn't, open the printers window again, delete your printer and reinstall it.
Remember to reboot your system in between these steps. You can also use the print troubleshooter.
