I have a similar issue.When I Spooled a document in windwos 7 with HpD4260.It tasked a long time without nothing printed.Has anyone seen the same behavior?
It is the "print spooler service is not running" Error.Now fix the error.
1.Click "start button"-->"Run",Type "services.msc" and click OK.
2.Find the "Printer Spooler service" in the windows, Double-click it.Then change its startup type to Automatic.
3.Delete contents of the C:\Windows\System32\spool\printers folder.
4.Restart your computer and install printer again.
Or you can open command prompt and type in windwos 7
net stop spooler
del /Q /F /S "%systemroot%\System32\Spool\Printers\*.*"
net start spooler
