Open regedit as an administrator

Delete all the sub-keys inside Version-3

Open a Command Prompt window and key in the command net stop spooler

Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\printers\ and delete any files there (By default, this is where the print spooler stores print files).
