Windows 7: Win 7 Print Queue won't empty

Windows 7 Home Premium
Win 7 Print Queue won't empty

I have two PCs on which I have installed Win 7 Home Premium. They are both Dell PCs and I have a Dell MFP1600n networked printer plugged into my router. Everything prints fine, but when it's done printing the job won't flush out of the queue. Since it's in the queue, when I reboot both systems, I get another copy of the document. HOW can I get the queue to empty???

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

Hope I can help

Try this

Go to services. Look for print spooler, make sure it is set to automatic

If that is ok

Turn off printer, disconnect from the computer.

reconnect and turn on

If that does not help reinstall and look for new drivers and do step 2 again.
