    The process spoolsv.exe is taking up about 98% of my cpu time on my Win 2000 SVR. I can stop the print spooler which makes the process go away. When I restart the spooler within 30 sec spoolsV as I like to call it is bouncing around 98%. Any suggestions?

    P.S. I have been battling with the Nimda VIrus.

    I guess that's the million dollar question. I ran the Nimda removal tool again this morning and it deleted 1 file. I need to reboot and scan again, but I will have to wait until days end. I have not added anything to the server so I know that's not the problem. If I reinstalled the service pack do you think that could fix the problem?

    It may do, but I would doublecheck on the scan first.

    If it dosen't, let me know
