Print jobs not being deleted from spooler

http://serverfault.com – On our LAN I have one particular machine that seems to be clogging up the spooler/queue every time it prints to one particular printer. Server 2008 Print Server; Win7 Box. Every other machine can print to this printer fine. This machine can print to other shared printers fine. What happens when it prints is the job is spooled and sent to the printer. The job prints. The job does not get deleted from the spooler--it just sits there saying "Sent to printer". The only way to get this printer back is to manually go into the Server 2008 box and run net stop spooler del C:\Windows\System32\ (HowTos)
