DLL Initialization Failed

By Kareem ·
On one of my member servers I am getting an error message that will not go away.

spoolss.exe - DLL initilization failed.

Initialization of the dynamic link library c:\winnt\system32\wspwsp.dll failed. The process is terminating abnormally.

What exactly does this mean? Whenever I click 'ok' it will keep coming up!

I don't think that spoolss.exe is giving you the problem. I think the problem lies with wspwsp.dll, which is the WinSockProxy provider, and is installed with Proxy server. I'm not sure why you would be getting the error. Perhaps you could try reinstalling the latest service pack. I have found that to resolve a lot of problems.
