I don't know the reason for this problem, but i know a working solution to solve your mistake :
- You have to delete all aborted Printerjobs in the Directory \WinNT\System32\spool\Printers. (I DID THIS)
- Delete all Printer-Files in the Directory \WinNT\System32\spool\w32x86 - (I COULDN"T FIND DIRECTORY!)
- Delete all DLL-Files in the Directory \WinNT\System32\spool\prtprocs\w32x86, but not the Windows-DLL "sfmpsprt.dll" - this is the original Printer-DLL coming with Windows-Setup.
(System wouldn't let me delete file xjprint.dll (got error message that file is in use). However, I could move this file out into the desktop - which I did.
There were two other files - blproces.dll, blprocess.dll.del : I moved these two files out to the desktop as well)

After this, you have to reboot Windows and you can reinstall your Printerdriver.

System just worked fine after reboot. Strangely, this procedure did not affect the two Network Printers I have installed as well - it took out the Xerox DeskJet printer - the culprit!).
