Local Downlevel Document

I have recently installed a home network between 2 PC's so that i can share all three of my printers. It all works fine except that when i login on one of my pc's i get something called a "local downlevel document" appearing in the printing que. It normally happens on my HP Laserjet 6P but i also get it on my Epson Stylus C40UX (both these are connected to the same computer) I appear to not get it on the other printer (A HP Deskjet 720C) which is connected to the other computer. My computers specs are:

PC 1
800MHz
512Ram
32MB TNT2 GFX
LaserJet 6P
Epson Stylus C40
10/100 Mb/s fast ethernet adapter

Connected to PC2 using a 10m crossover cable

PC 2
1.3GHz
384 MB Ram
128MB DDR ATI Radeon 9000 GFX
HP DeskJet 720c
10/100 Mb/s fast ethernet adapter

Hope someone can tell me how to get rid of these annoying documents as if the printer is on it can waste a bit of paper (it prints random letters and stuff on the pages)

Thanks in advance
