        Another neat tip browse to the spooler directory under system32 and remove the stale job
        (providing the print spooler service is stopped) from the printers directory.

            I'm a bit late to help you with this but i keep a little batch file on the desktop of my print servers with this in them

            Code:
            net stop spooler && net start spooler
            which stops and restarts the spooler service for me.
