HowTo: Clear a stuck print job in Windows

MS Word crashed in the middle of a print job, and the document was stuck in the print queue, not obeying commands to delete or cancel it, even after reboots.
To fix this, i opened c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS and deleted all the files there.  If the files are locked and won't delete, stop the Print Spooler service first and then delete the files.
This worked for me!
