Windows 7: Print queue won't clear

Print queue won't clear

I was trying to help someone who could not print. The print queue was present and could not be cleared with the usual cancel operations or by uninstalling and reinstalling the printer software.

Any ideas? Do we need to do a repair install of Windows? Could the spooler service be defective?

TIA for any help.
