I assume you have no problems using your printer until today.
If that is true, then you may want to cancel all jobs in the
print queue first. The easiest way is to do the followings:
Open Notepad and type the following lines: net stop spooler del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl net start spooler
Save it in your root directory as: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd Create a shortcut for it and move it to your Desktop
Now everytime you have print job(s) that got stuck in the print queue, go to your desktop and Double Click on the DeletePrintJobs.cmd
It will clear all pending print jobs in the print queue and allow you to print new jobs again.
HP LaserJet P1006 is still supported. It can run In Windows 98 though Windows 10. In my answer, I would recommend downloading the Basic Driver. The basic driver allows you to print, manage and doesn't allow anything else to install with it.
