Print Queue Cleaner – banish the dreaded Windows printer stall forever [Freeware]

OK, admit it. You hate those times when you try and cancel a print job in Windows and it just sits there stalled, don’t you? We do, especially when it stops us printing out again. Grrrr. What we can’t understand is why, four hundred years after the introduction of the Windows operating system, someone hasn’t…y’know….FIXED THE PROBLEM!!!!!???

Well this might help. Print Queue Cleaner is a small freeware utility which promises to banish the printer queue stall for all time, and a jolly good thing that is too. What you’re basically doing here is flushing the print spooler that Microsoft uses to speed up print tasks, but to our mind pressing a FIX IT key is so much better than hanging around for our computer to get sorted out.

The utility also doubles up as a printer test program, so you can send test pages to your printer and find out which of the ones installed in your Control Panel actually work. Wow, and it’s really the 21st century?
