    Is there a program that will clear your print que/spooler?
    My Dell Inspirion laptop with WIN7 is constantly hanging up the print que.
    I know how to clear it using MS services to stop the spooler and then deleting files from the print folder and restarting the spooler.
    That method is a bit complicated for other family members so I was wondering if any of you has run across a small script or batch file that will do this.
    Thanks,

    A.bat file that works in Windows 7.


    Above must be run as Admin (right click on bat).
    If that is too complicated, use the modified version that will run directly with a a prompt.

    None of the above is my original - but I don't recall where I got it.
