Re: Stops at 99% and trys to delete file - no other jobs...
This is based on your operating system and should work for all versions of XP, I have not tested it on Vista.
Start, Run, type "services.msc" Find "print spooler" Click the stop/start icon (square with triangle at the top of the screen shot below) Try to highlight your print job and clear it. If it will not, power down your printer, power it back on (physical power) and try again.

The best way to delete the print job is to turn the printer off, then disconnect the cable from the printer to the computer. Turn the printer on with the cables off, and go to your computer and delete the document, Then once it's deleted, turn the printer off again, and then hook the cable back up. Then turn the printer back on. That should do it.
I'm glad to provide the instructions to cancel the print.
Double click the printer icon in the system tray
(by the clock). That should open a printing status window. Highlight the
job you want to cancel and click on cancel. it will show "deleting".
Once the job is deleted, the printer may continue to print what is in
its internal memory, but once that is gone, the printer will stop and
eject the page.
If your computer has sent the file to the printer memory already you have to turn off the printer.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
Cancel all the documents in the print queue, (just do it whether they are actually deleted or not), press "cancel" on button the printer and restart your system and also the printer. If possible, please leave the printer switched off for few minutes and don't forget to use the "Power" button to turn if off or on. This will help your printer to restart new print job, all the jobs on the print queue will be deleted/cleared.
Thanks for using FixYa.
If you are using a Windows platform then if you look at the bottom right of the screen you will see a printer icon. Double click on the icon and the print queue will be displayed. To cancel a print j0ob, highlight the job and then cancel it.
First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.
Have you tried unpluging your printer from the computer as well as unpluging the printer from the electrical? If that doesn't work you should start from scratch... that is remove the printer from the computer memory, delete it, turn off the computer, turn on the computer and go through the installation process as if you just purchased the printer. Barring any mechanical problems as in jams or the such, the printer should return to operational status.
I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:
1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.
2.) Then go into User Accounts.
3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off
4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.
5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.
Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!
