I am not certain what you are asking, but I think the answer is "No". Each
time I start my machine, as it boots I get the error message:
"Spooler SubSystem App stopped working and was closed"
This also happens when I manually restart the Print Spooler Service after
about one minute. This problem just came up one morning for no apparent
reason. The only change of which I am aware was an update from Adobe Reader.
I have tried uninstalling Adobe Reader, but it did not help the problem. I

System Restore twice, but each time it failed when trying to restore the
Any help you can offer is deeply appreciated.
