File purpose and description:
spooIsv.exe is a program file which most likely was installed by you at one time or another. The exact disk location is also shown below to verfiy it is not spyware, as many spyware programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. Always check the proper disk location on your hard drive if you are suspicious, as this will help you identify spyware and viruses. This program is known as a trojan or virus, it goes by the name Trojan.SpooISV. It attempts to look just like a SPOOLSV system file, note that this file uses an "i" in the name spooisv.exe in an attempt to fool you, exactly as we stated earlier. Action should be taken to eliminate this virus from your computer. If you are having trouble removing this file, simply boot into safe mode and rename or delete this virus, but as always be sure to run your virus checker. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)
Actual file or task name: (Note that you can view the entire list here)
This is an executable program.
File or folder location:
This will be located at C:\WINNT\System32\spooIsv.exe
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, spooisv.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of spooisv.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
