Clear/Cancel-PrintJob program

#1 Post by vmars316 » Mon Mar 19, 2012 10:24 am

Greetings,
Too often, when I send a document to my local printer,
it gets hung up in the print que. Which of course hangs up
all the subsequent print jobs.
? Is there a Clear/Cancel-PrintJob program,
freeware or otherwise?
Normally, I have to Shutdown the computer to clear the print que.
This seems to have always been a problem, with every windows version.
Thanks...vmars316

I spent several hours on google today.
And here is the best info I found:
1) http://www.studio1productions.com/Artic ... lPrint.htm
"Cancel a Print Job in Windows 7 or Vista
Two Free Programs to Cancel and Clear Out Hung Print Jobs"

2) Start==> Run services.msc
Which can Start,Stop,Restart PrintSpooler

I tried (and retried) so many things, that I forgot what actually fixed the problem.
But it was one of the above. :)
