    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

    net stop spooler && net start spooler[/CODE]

    which stops and restarts the spooler service for me.[CODE]net stop spooler && net start spooler[/CODE]

    which stops and restarts the spooler service for me.
