Spool 32 on Network Printers

By choyman ·
We recently upgraded McAfee Virus Scan via Zenworks and it has caused continuous Spool 32 errors to appear when printing from HP network printers. It sometimes prints but locks up afterward and forces the user to cold boot. If it does allow them back into the system it removes all their printers and they still must shutdown and reboot to recognize the network printers again. I have tried many of the suggested fixes in Novell and Microsoft but no success. On some PC's I have had to completely remove McAfee before the PC will operate properly. Help please.

I have had similiar problems. Try going into the properties of the printer on the local machine and click on the details tab and go into spool settings. In the spool settings choose the option spool directly to printer.
Hope this helps

in addition to answer #1 put the spool32.exe in the startup. try changing the drivers like if you are using pcl5, try pcl6 or ps.

Using the "print directly to printer" option fixed the problem. Thanks.
