Unable to delete print job "outbind://......"

This print job will not delete any conventional way.  I have attempted re-booting and it is still there, just hanging.  I have tried finding the spool in explore, but cannot find the specific spool file.  I am using Windows XP and we are printing to a networked printer.  The printer works for the other computers, it is communicating.  But this old print job is prohibiting any new jobs from starting.

I just found a posted solution that worked for me.  Effectively, it entailed going to the Run Menu, typing "NET STOP SPOOLER"  enter, and then typed "NET START SPOOLER"  enter, and the hung print job finally went away.
