Print Spooler in Windows 7

I have noticed that in my case, with an HP D4260, Spooling a document takes a long time. Has anyone seen the same behavior?

Stop the print Spooler service from services.msc.
Delete contents of the C:\Windows\System32\spool\printers folder.
Restart print spooler service from services.msc.

or open command prompt and type

Code:
net stop spooler
del /Q /F /S "%systemroot%\System32\Spool\Printers\*.*"
net start spooler

Re: Print Spooler in Windows 7

Tried that. It's more than likely a driver issue, resolved sooner or later.
Printing Fast Draft spits out immediately.

Re: Print Spooler in Windows 7

I have saw many similar issues,so it's not recommended to use windows 7 as production OS since the final release has not come out.It's just my opinions!

Re: Print Spooler in Windows 7

Well, we all got an F- grade on this one.
It was a mechanical issue. Using XL cartridges on the D4620 is supposed to work, but using regular cartridges works just fine.
D4260 + XL = XS (eXtra Slow).

Re: Print Spooler in Windows 7

If you ever get any random printer issues, you can also run the MS Troubleshooter, which can at least assist in pinpointing the problems: Troubleshoot printer problems

Re: Print Spooler in Windows 7

It could be the difference between printing mostly text and very little color like a Windows test page and a web page loaded with graphics and color. Color and heavy graphics will slow it down to about 6 pages per minute and the printer will take a while to figure out how to render the page correctly.
