Thanks

Sounds like Auditing is enabled on the printer

This tells you on how to get to the Audit tab, just check it and disable it for successful prints.

Hi,

See:

"How to Turn On and Turn Off Printing Event Logging
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
On the File menu, click Server Properties, and then click the Advanced tab.
To turn on or turn off spooler error event logging to the system log file, click to select or clear the Log spooler error events check box.
To turn on or turn off spooler warning event logging to the system log file, click to select or clear the Log spooler warning events check box.
To turn on or turn off spooler information event logging to the system log file, click to select or clear the Log spooler information events check box.
Either restart the spooler service or restart the server.
By default, all printing events are written to the system log file. If you want to reduce the amount of data that is logged, turn off information event logging. If you want to reduce the amount data even more, turn off warning event logging. Microsoft does not recommend that you turn off spooler error event logging. "
