First of all, ensure that you have the latest drivers for your printers.  After that, it would be a good idea to manually clear your print queue:

1. Open a command prompt with full admin privileges:  click on the Start button, enter cmd in the Search field, right-click on the command prompt icon and select Run as administrator

2. Within the command prompt enter net stop spooler

3. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to %systemdrive%\Windows\System32\spool\printers\ and delete all of the files within that folder

4. Return to your elevated command prompt and enter net start spooler
