|The problem started when my partner brought home an old printer from work a while back and thought it'd just plug-and-play without the install discs. Which it didn't.|
Since then, every time the Canon is connected to the laptop, it crashes as soon as the usb is connected-everything just stops responding and the only way I can get it running again is through a hard shutdown.
I've tried returning to an earlier restore point than when the other printer was conected, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer, and downloading the latest drivers for it, but the same problem still occurs.
Any ideas as to the problem or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
