what is spoolv.exe? i found it running on my computer, and it was sucking 99% of my CPU's process power!

is it a virus or what? i stopped it with task manager, and nothing bad happened. any ideas?

and this has nothing to do with porn.

Kill it with fire. Your problem is described by a user here:

Did you reboot? Sometimes the printer service just freaks out and needs a reboot.

What is the location of the process? If it's running from the %windows%/system32 folder, it's the print spooler. If it's running from a different location, it's a virus.

If your print spooler is hogging resources, it's probably corrupted. Uninstall printer, reboot computer, then reinstall printer. Shit happens, no big deal.
