Printer printing previous days work on startup

Hi all,

Got a small problem with a laptop at work, which I can't work out. Wonder if you kind people would be able to suggest anything.

Every time my colleague starts up her computer, it prints off everything she printed off on the previous day. It appears to do this once logged in, but isn't always consistant. Sometimes she boots up the PC and it doesn't happen. I've checked to see if anything is stuck in the print que, but it's clear. I've also tried disabling unneccesary componenents in msconfig but it hasn't made any difference.

It's only her machine that this problem occurs on, and everone in the office is networked to the same printer, indicating that the problem must be to do with a setting on her machine.

Her laptop is running Win XP Pro SP3 and the printer is a Canon MF5650

Thanks for your help

There may be an option for 'Keep Print Documents' under Advanced setting ensure this option is not ticked.

Or, try changing the Advance Print settings to 'Print Direct to Printer' instead of spooling.
