    Word 64bit wants to print under splwow64.exe

    Then the question is: Why does Word 64bit need it to print to a 64bit printer driver on 64bit Windows machine?

    The other Office apps like Excel and PowerPoint don't use splwow64.exe.

    Actually, we do need the Print Spooler service.

    Splwow64 Exe Bad Image windows 10

    Hi

    Just yesterday I discovered that I can no longer print a pdf, or word etc - and I get 'Splwow64 Exe Bad Image' - the exact error being:

    'C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\DRIVERS\x64\3\E_IUICGCE.DLL is either not designed to run on Windows or contains an error.'

    It's been fine for ages.

    I have tried to run the 'system restore' but it wont complete. Also, reinstalled the printer driver and run the 'Safety Scanner' which reported nothing. (Along with this I have McAfee running the background). I have run the printer
    trouble shooter which came up blank.

    I have seen several threads/articles on this error, but they are either telling me to do what I have already done, or are really old.

    Any other ideas please????

    Many thanks

    E
