Printed jobs retained in queue

I have a user printing to a LaserJet 2200DN. It is set up on Win2000 W/S SP3 on a  TCP/IP port. When the user prints the job is not deleted from the queue (it remains, listed as "Printed"). Consequently, next time the user starts their computer, when the Print Spooler service starts all the jobs are printed again.

Keep printed documents is not checked in the queue's properties.

If I set up a queue to a different printer this problem does not occur.

I have tried deleting the queue and port, restarted and re-installing and the problem still occurs.

Other workstations with a similar setup do not exhibit this problem.

Can anybody come up with any suggestions to troubleshoot this?

Thanks,

Leon...

Take a look at this link and check all permissions, I have read someplace that if you don't have the everyone group added to security that the queues will not clear.

I've also had tried deleting a printer and recreating it, and not solving problems.  Probably maintains the information in the registry and reuses it.

Thanks oBdA,

Turning off Bi-di support on the port fixed the problem. Never knew that the default TCP/IP port/LPR didn't support that!

Thanks again,

Leon...
