A simpler and faster way than rebooting in Safe Mode is:
Start>Run>type NET STOP SPOOLER and click OK.
You can start it again by typing NET START SPOOLER

If you start Windows XP in the Safe Mode, you will be able to delete
the print job since the spooler will not be running.

This thread exactly describes my situation. HP OfficeJet 4215xi All-In-One
is connected to Computer #1, running Windows XP SP2. The printer is shared
on a local network and Computer #2 sent a bad print job to the printer. I
can't delete the job -- Computer #2 doesn't even see it, and on Computer #1
the Printer Queue says "Deleting" but the job stays listed. It never times
out (at least not within 48 hours!), and rebooting the printer and/or
Computer #1 and/or Computer #2 doesn't help. I tried Byte's suggestion to
stop the spooler; when the spooler is stopped, "Cancel All Documents" does
nothing (the Status Bar says "Error processing command"), and when the
spooler is restarted the job is still there. Any suggestions?
