    Dear jhanlon6,

    Hope this helps you.
    Reset the printer spooler remotely

    net stop spooler
    del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\*.shd /q
    del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\*.spl /q
    net start spooler

    .shd, and .spl files are print job files. If you delete them, it will wipe away any pending jobs.
