Deleting an item in the print queue often doesn't seem to work until the system is restarted. I've had this problem with both XP and Win7.
The test page sounds like you have requested it. Try just cancelling a document, then when it hangs in the print queue, restart the computer.
I've researched several "fixes" but am convinced it is a Microsoft problem that they need to fix.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Secure Your Data With Our Online Backup Services ' DataAlign In vanilla terms, a backup or the process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. The simplest definition of a computer backup is an exact copy. In the case of computer files, we are referring to copies of the original files that you have on your laptop, desktop, or external drive. Creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it's also important to make sure that those two places aren't on the same type of device. For example, if you have 3 copies of a working document on your computer, if your computer crashes, you will still lose all three. This makes the backup method and medium, an important thing to consider for your backup strategy. With the kind of Online Cloud Backup technology being used these days, it is extremely important to back up your files. Ideally, we store data files, movies, music, photos and our official documents on the computer. With the ever-changing technology, desktops and laptops have reduced in cost, and the quantum of storage inside them has surged considerably over the last few years. Unfortunately, storing all your data in only one place is risky. Accidental deletion, theft, computer loss, natural disaster is just some of the reasons that could cost you heavily as you stand out the chance to lose the data you've spent so long generating and collecting. Having an excellent backup strategy Computer Data Backup is the only way to battle the unexpected loss of data. There is more than one way to back up your computers, and using multiple forms of backup will minimize the risk of losing your valuable files. This is where, the PC Backup solution from DataAlign stands out of the rest and gives a one stop solution for Business Server Data Backup up your computer's data on the secure cloud servers. Our innovative platform has been designed while keeping you in mind. To provide optimal user experience we focus on simplicity and this in turn ensures that you will be able to backup and access large data quickly and smoothly.
