Usually stopping and starting the Print Spooler will take care of this.
If not, then:
Go to the services and stop the Print Spooler.
Delete all files in the C:\windows\system32\spool\printers directory (you
will probably find you have 2 files in here)
Go back to the services and start the Print Spooler
This should clear out all print jobs that are currently hung. However, this
will also clear out any print jobs waiting to be printed as well. If you
have other print jobs waiting, then you will have to find the 1 or 2 files
associated with your print job in the above printers directory and remove
