I have a print job pending in the queue, and i have tried to delete it, but it will not. It says "deleting' but it is not, and I cannot figure out how to get rid of it. It is impeding me from printing anything else, even though I set its priority level as low as possible. Help!!!

Check to make sure you don't have more than one of the same printer installed. If so it confuses the computer and confuses you. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Printers. If you see that you have the same printer installed more than once you need to delete the others by Right Clicking on it and select Delete. You probably printed to the one that is not active or online since only one can be at that status.
Also look at the bottom right near the time to see if you have any print jobs pending or waiting in the queue to print. Click on the printer icon and then Delete or Cancel the Print Jobs in the queue.
Click on start menu and then click on run or in the search box, type services.msc and hit enter
it will open the services window, locate the service named as print spooler in it ,
Right click on print spooler and select restart, restart it atleast 6-7 times, then check the printing queue....
You need to cancel all pending print jobs on the queue. If you see the printer's icon on your System Tray, lower right corner of your computer, right click it and choose Cancel Print Jobs. Or you can double click it so that it will show you the current printing job or those in queue. Select and delete them. If this does not cancel the pending print jobs, disconnect your printers power cord and shutdown the computer. After like 10 minutes, turn the printer and computer back again.
go to start option there is print and faxes option pls click on that a window would appear and it will show your printer name, double click on that there would be ur pending document and delete on that and restart your system and 100% if would be deleted...
Go into the Job review mode and highlight the pending print job (note: it may be stuck in processing). You should then get the option to delete the job.
Make sure that the pending print job is also cleared from the network print queue. They can sit in the queue and be persistent on processing, even after you've cleared the copier. Clear the queue prior to deleting the job on the copier.
If this doesn't, disconnect the copier from your network and try the above steps again, then reboot the copier and reconnect it to your network.
If you're trying to print out Adobe-based web pages from the internet, this may be what's causing your copier to jam up. There's known coding anomalies with Adobe-embedded documents on web pages. Trying to directly print from the web page can stall or lock up the print process.
