restart the machine and remove it manually.

Try to run AVAST! after reboot: probably the file will be automatically repaired.

Hi Gina,

you could/should also scan the file with other (Online-) scanners,e.g. Trend & KAV (see below; deactivate avast resident shield first), to get a more specific name/description for it, and rule out a false alarm

are you sure it's "Spoole32.exe" and not "Spool32.exe" ?
