Of course you can do this with the gui by going to Control Panel>Printers.
The printer in question can be cleared from there. Or some printers have a
Notification Area icon that can be right-clicked for options. Or you can do
it from the command line.
Start>Search box>type: cmd
When cmd appears in Results above, right-click it and choose "Run as
administrator". This gives you an elevated command prompt. At the prompt,
net stop spooler [enter]
To restart the print spooler, simply type:
net start spooler [enter]
