Hello Christie. My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows. I'm sorry that you're having this issue. It would be my pleasure to help you resolve it. Can you tell me please what Operating System is on your computer?

If you have Windows 10, these instructions should do the trick for you.

  1. From the Desktop, hold down the Windows key and press R.
  2. Into the Run window, type services.msc and hit enter.
  3. Browse down to the print spooler service, right click it and select Properties then click on the Stop button.
  4. Now browse to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS and delete the job inside this folder.
  5. Restart the computer and you should find the document(s) have been removed, and the job has stopped.

​If you have something other than Windows 10, please let me know and I will provide instructions for your particular Operating System. Or, if you'd like, I can perform these steps for you while you watch via the Premium Service of Secure Remote Assistance. This is completely optional. If you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and work on the issue for you. If you do not choose to take this service, but need more help, we can continue here.
