    I use windows98 at work, and I keep getting this spool32 error message. It sais windows has performed an illegal operation and needs to close.
    I don't know if this helps but here is my hijack log. Any help on sniffing the problem out would be immensely appreciated.

    Oh, and I tried running spybot s&d, but when I try to install new updates for it, spybot freezes up, and I have to ctr alt del to close it. I don't know if this is somehow related to my original problem or not.

    Spool32 in a printer issue. Have you installed or uninstalled any kind of printer lately?

    I am hooked up to a konika printer. Sometimes when I try to print from it, it tells me I need to install a printer. So I restart my comp in order to be able to print again.

    That is the problem. I would look for an updated driver for that printer.
