Printing jobs just spool then disappear without printing anything

  • Remove all the printers in “Device and Printers”.
  • Open up cmd as administrator.
  • Stop spooler (net stop spooler).
  • Delete everything inside “System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\” and “System32\spool\PRINTERS\”. Close explorer in task manager and use the previous command window to delete them if it said that explorer is using some of the files.
  • Restart the computer and add the printers back.
