 [b] Problems with cancellation of print jobs 111,111,182.
Windows Vista and XP «do not like the" abolition of the print jobs on the fly (when the seal is already in progress). In such cases, clean the print queue is often not immediately, but as long as you do not clean the print queue, the next print job will not run. Sometimes cancel the print job is not just after the restart (and sometimes after restarting the print job, which we have already seems to be canceled, the printer starts to print).

In such cases, you can try to manually clean up your print queue (111,111,180. Windowssystem32spoolPRINTERS 111,111,182.). However, it is not always possible, because This folder has attributes 111,111,183. Hidden [/i] , System , Read only 111,111,184. , So Windows will not let you specifically "rampage" in this folder.

You can try to clean the print queue using an alternative file manager, for example, [i] Total Commander 111,111,184. (In the settings should be checked 111,111,183. Show hidden and system files

- Run the print spooler;
- Now with problems with the abolition of the press run [i] Services
(Or 111,111,184 Task Manager.)
- Unload the print spooler [i] spoolsv.exe
;
- Open the folder C: spool and delete all temporary files (each print job, as a rule, "issued" a pair of spool files - *. SPL, *. SHD, for example, 00005.SHD and 00005.SPL (or FP00001.SPL and FP00001.SHD). Some printers, in the spool folder, in addition to the files *. SPL, *. SHD, are also files *. tmp);
