    "Error: Unable to delete the document, using in Print Queue" on Windows 7

    Am unable to delete any word document or pdf document on my Windows 7 machine the reason is that whenever I try to delete any of the file I get the message that "Error: Unable to delete the document, using in Print Queue" though there is a printer connected to my machine but no print is given in recent times.
