Print Spooler Deleted Items wont delete?

By slimmswitch ·

I have a Windows 2003 server actining as a print server , hosting about 11 Printers.

I have 1 particular printer a HP 2300 when printing to it, prints fine.
But it does not remove the job? It just gets stuck on Deleting - Printed and nothing happens. And sometimes old print jobs start printing? No other printer has this issue. I can stop the service and delete the temp files manually and it obvisouly goes away.

Does anyone know why or how i can get the spooler files for this printer to go away on it's own.
I've confirmed that there is no check mark on keep printed copies.?

Please let me know

I did notice when ever i go to check the properties for this printer, it takes a while to come up (60sec)

Did you try deleting and recreating the print que?

I just deleted the stock spooler files.

As it's only 1 printer having the issue

I'd probably suggest re-installing the printer drivers.

I just re-installed the driver off the HP, i seem to be getting to the properties page faster but it still wont delete the spooled items.

Work Around - Should be good now.

I've decided to bypass the spooler completely and print directly to the device.
This is good enough for me.

Thanks for everyones help
