    CPU power is consumed by spoolsv.exe in windows 7 64-bit

    I have installed Windows 7 64-bit on my PC. I have been found that the spoolsv.exe is accorded to printing. When this process is killed then the Printing cache/buffer is stopped. So that its getting printing is impossible. I got into services.msc to switch automatic initialization to manual. But I could not find the application to start. I also want to tell that spoolsv.exe takes all power of one core from my CPU. What is the problem behind this? Can anyone will solve this problem. If so then leave a quick reply.
