Solved Legacy printer(Canon LBP-660) needs winxp driver

February 13, 2013 at 07:20:11
Specs: windowsxp pro, 1.4ghz/512mb
Hi i googled for an xp driver for this old laser printer for a friend and found this site http://xpdrivers.com/printer/canon/...
Is it genuine? The file that it says to download is 'drivertool.exe'. Is that something usable? It is a parallel connected printer and the drivers are for up to win2000 i think

✔ Best Answer
drivertool.exe is not a driver but a third-party tool to locate drivers which are already on your PC. It will not help you to find the driver you need and it may even contain spyware so I would not install or run it.

There is only one place to get peripheral device drivers from that you can trust to be free from spyware or malware, and that's from the manufacturer's own website.

If Canon do not have an XP driver for the LBP-660 (which they don't) I see little point in looking elsewhere.

"the file that it says to download is 'drivertool.exe'"

If you want to infect your computer, go ahead & install it, lol.

The Win2000 driver from the Canon site might work, you've got nothing to lose by trying.

Avoid any websites that claim to sort out all your driver issues - most are scams and can cause more issues than they fix.

Proceed as per #1 above.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
