    could tell me what a spooler sub system ap is?
    it keeps on coming up with a message saying it has stopped working and needs to close.

    the thing is my laptop doesn't work any differently whether or not it is working, and the error message comes up randomly.
    how do i stop this error message?

    It controls the printer spools. It usually crashes if a print job has failed or become corrupt.

    If you go in to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services, you can start and stop it in there. I'd suggest starting it, very quickly clearing any print jobs you have, then restart it again. This will 9/10 times fix your problem.
