Re: delete a print job
I think I got it !!
I have the same problem...
A stoped and deleted print job that never die !!
So I stop the spooler ( remember to open a CMD window)
> net stop spooler [enter]
Go to this folder in my Vista
There is files with the extension .SHD and .SPL, it comes in pairs, for
FP00011.SHD and FP00011.SPL
I open One of then and found that one is the Word that I want to print.
So I delete the two files.
I started again the spooler
> net start spooler [enter]
And Voila !!
