    Spooler.exe isn't a virus. Its the printer spool service running.

    Even though printer might not be installed but the service may be started.

    What's a handy solution for this?
    I've installed e-scan that was available in the Digit DVD. And if it's confirmed to be a virus then the anti virus didn't detect it.

    Any other idea?

    Try an online scan...

    Are there any suspicious files or only the process? enable 'view hidden files' in folder options and see.

    Try using Comodo Internet Security or Zone Alarm to scan and block the suspicious processes. I would personally recommend using Comodo as Zone Alarm is a memory hog. You can also try anti malwares such as Trojan Remover...

    First try killing the process by using the task manager. then delete the file (usuallyy located at %windir%\system32 or %windir%). Arrange files by modified to help easy location of file. remove the autorun entry using the autoruns. If the file is locked up or undeletable use killbox to delete file. It will try deleting the file, if not possible, will delete it at reboot.

    Also check for the following files.

    %System%\Cnfgldr.exe
    %System%\cthelp.exe
    %System%\Sysmon16.exe
    %System%\Sys3f2.exe
    %System%\Syscfg32.exe
    %System%\Mssql.exe
    %System%\Aim95.exe
    %System%\Svchosts.exe
    %System%\FB_PNU.EXE
    %System%\Cmd32.exe
    %System%\Sys32.exe
    %System%\Explorer.exe
    %System%\IEXPL0RE.EXE
    %System%\iexplore.exe
    %System%\sock32.exe
    %System%\MSTasks.exe
    %System%\service.exe
    %System%\Regrun.exe
    %System%\ipcl32.exe
    %System%\syswin32.exe
    %System%\CMagesta.exe
    %System%\YahooMsgr.exe
    %System%\vcvw.exe
    %System%\spooler.exe
    %System%\MSsrvs32.exe
    %System%\svhost.exe
    %System%\winupdate32.exe
    %System%\quicktimeprom.exe
    if they are present ,delete those too.

    Always be on the watchout for misspelled files in system , system32 and windows folders. (now, How can i know the original filenames for differentiating?
    Simple, after installation of Windows .generate a file list using dir /b /s at root drive i.e c:\ or d:\ etc. and redirect output to a file. sample: c:\dir /b /s >>filelist.txt)
