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.
