I love/hate XP.

All of a sudden, everytime I print something the dialog box shows that the
print job is 99% complete and is never 100% so I have to reboot the computer
to use the printers again.

This is only true of the 2 Lexmark (6710 & Z515) USB printers connected to
one computer. The parallel port printer (Lexmark Z22) works with no problem.
What is it I have to do to make my printers act normally again?

Thank you ... I hope

Lexmark is great for doing that. As Cari saud, uninstall the printer,
reinstall usually cures it.
