The easy thing to remember is the "Slash Rule". If it ends in a slash then you mean a directory. If it ends in somehting else you mean a file. Your example of "*\Spool" excludes a file named "Spool" without an extension. Most likely not the desried outcome. You will find that 90% of all exclusions simply aren't necessary. Rather than fix them I would recommend removing them.
Also, you should NOT exclude the spooler directory. This has been a recent area of attack. One machine would print garbage to 1000+ printers.
Thank you for your response. I will give this a shot and take your comment into account.
