    G'day steviejay, sounds like you have an intelligent printer that is censoring your output!
    That is a worry, I haven't seen that problem previously.
    You might try having a look in your control panel, system, devices or device manager, with a bit of luck when you scroll down through all your devices you will find a USB printer, (assuming yours is usb) if you open that item you should see something like "this devise is working properly" which is a good start for troubleshooting.
    There should be no yellow exclamation marks on this item.
    Are you quite sure your print queue in the print manager is being actually deleted?
    What kind of printer is it?
    The assumption is that it is a PC using a windows variant.
    Cheers, qldit.
