This Print Flush proglet is probably the single most important Windows freeware utility ever created. Ever been caught with a hung printer, blocked spooler and no way to reset everything and get started again without rebooting the computer? Well fret no more, this tiny batch file does it all for you, instantly. Cherish it, tender it lovingly and keep it close to your mouse pointer for emergencies. Remember to run it as an administrator in later Windows versions. [Via]
Has your printer quit working? Did you try to cancel a job and it broke the printer completely? I always do that. And the method to fix it usually involves rebooting, restarting the print spooler, trashing junk print files, and sometimes even more. Not anymore…Print Flush has a simple function: clean the print spool. If your printer’s driver is incorrectly installed, Print Flush cannot help you. If you have used your printer before and it worked fine then, but it doesn’t now, Print Flush can probably help you.
