Shared printer on the network, printer on system A..  System B, remote, unable to print.   Sys B does not show an error, just wont print.  I opend printer on Sys B and three are no jobs pending.   So I tried to Delete the pringer on Sys B.    Comes back with "Printer can not be removed.  The requested operation is not allowed when there are jobs queued to the printer..  I opened the printer, no jobs showing as being queued.  
At this point, I tried to Cancel All Documents.  Then I get error processing command.

Hi Try this one

1.Go to start < run< type in           cmd           and hit ok now type         NET STOP SPOOLER             at a command prompt and hit return.

Then go to C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS and delete the files in there.  Then start the spooler (from command line, use "NET START SPOOLER")

2.Heres a few good sites that may help

I went to network places and found the printer.   Seems it was in a pause print mode, reset and now it is ok, thanks for your input.
