I'm running Xp with sp2 and using an epson stylus color 400. After a paper jam the printer wont syop printing pages of gobledy gook! I have tried canceling all documents, turning off the power and even uninstalling the damn thing. Every time I re-install it starts again. HELP PLEASE!

I've tried the above and checked for bugbear, still churning out rubbish!

For any one with the same problem in the future.
I removed the printer, then in the printers folder click on file, server properties and then the driver tab. Remove the driver. Shut down, disconnect the printer and Re-boot. Go to the folder: windows/system 32/spool/printers and remove all the files. Shut down re-connect the printer and re-boot. Once it re-installed the problem was cured.
