Last job prints at startup

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

Running XP Pro Sp1 and using HP Laserjet 6L via parallel
connection.

When I shutdown and restart the computer, my last print
job prints. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

TIA.

    Try opening the Printer settings. In the Printer tasks, if
    there jobs to be printed, highlight them, then select file
    and delete print jobs.

    In Romans 1 there are qualities of Unregenerate man listed
    which describe him in the last days.
    Is your quality found on this list??

    Hi Lester,

    These are jobs that have already been printed. They
    shouldn't be in the queue to be printed again.

    Your suggestions, which I do appreciate, are a temporary
    fix. It is something I can do before each shutdown. I'm
    looking for a more permanent solution to why these print
    jobs are not being deleted from the queue after they are
    printed or why they are returning to the queue and being
    printed at startup.

    Thanks

    Hmm Sounds like you have a corrupted driver, or one thats
    ghosting anyway.
    Go to the device manager from Control Panel and open the
    printer device properties page. Look on the driver info
    sheet and copy down all the files entered there. You will
    then need to uninstall the item. Restart windows and search
    for the files you wrote down. If these found, Physically
    unplug the printer from data port. Then remove them to the
    recycle bin.

    Next - Find the entry in printers folder. If there is an
    entry, delete it. Restart without the printer. Next plug the
    device back into the port, and if the latest driver is in an
    update file - run it BEFORE windows sets its default drivers
    up. When the port detect window starts at the end of install
    turn power on to the printer, and let windows finish the
    installation with supplementary program pieces.

    Let me know how this goes.

    There can also be other programs which may interfere, but
    thats another story.

    Lester,

    One step at a time is good. The problem printer is at
    work and I won't be able to implement your
    recommendations until early this week.

    Thank you for the new ideas. At least there is a road
    to go down. I'll keep you posted. Much abliged.

    Disable Bidirectional Support on the Ports tab of the printer properties.
    (I am assuming you are using the driver from HP and not the driver shipped
    on the XP CD).
