    Splwow64

    To print from ie9, at least, the print job freezes until I kill the splwow64 process.

    Two files

    I found the file in two C:/Windows locations. Both are slightly different sizes. In addition there is a file size and a size on disk in the properties box. When I use Process Explorer to look at the file it gives me a size that is 100 kb off from what you gave me. My other computer shows it as 1336 kb.Neither refrences any threat.
