Print que will not flush - W2K

Sent 2 print jobs to a shared printer at another desk.  First one printed, second one did not.  Opened printer window, selected "cancel document" in usual way.  Status reads "Deleting-Printing."  But job will not delete.  Waiting a really long time (overnight) did not help.  Re-starting computer and printer does not help.  How can I get rid of this print job?

i had the same problem a while ago. select a different default printer and then delete the file from there.
the file is just a ghost image and is not really there.
try printing.if its bugging you that much delete the printer driver and then reinstall it that will defo fix it

printer is not my default, its elsewhere on a small peer to peer network

the print job doesn't bother me by being there, but it is preventing me from printing subsequent jobs- they que up behind it and wait

I'll try deleting and reinstalling the driver.  thanks

I would like to delete this question if I may

the problem turned out to be on the computer to which the printer is attached
