    This is caused by a module fault you've got a corrupted file some wheres. Try running a Scandisk and a Defragmentation of your hard drive this should fix it. If not, you'll need to extract Spool32.exe from the Windows installation files,Spool32 is a core component of the Windows operating system. this is not caused by your ram,It is a 32-bit component that handles the spooling of print jobs . Why you get this error it is due to conflicts, bugs or corrupted files,I would guess you get these when running your printer.Do a scan disk of folders and files for errors first then do a complete scan disk after do a defrag.let me know whats kickin.I will help you out.
