Hi, please can somebody help me?!
I'm using Windows 7 Professional (32-bit)

I was connected to a printer (Canon MP600R) on a network, which has been working perfectly since day 1....until today. I tried to print and it could not connect to the printer. So..I went to PRINTERS & FAXES and deleted the printer, then clicked ADD PRINTER > ADD A NETWORK, WIRELESS OR BLUETOOTH PRINTER then I selected the Canon MP600R and NEXT and I got the error message "Connect to Printer" Error 0x00000002 (Window's cannot connect to printer)

Does anybody know why this would be happening? and how I can fix it?
FYI-There are 3 computers on our network, the printer is connected to one (running Vista), which works fine. The other PC (running XP,connected on network) had the same problem as me this morning, but when I deleted the printer and re-added it, it worked. So it's just my PC having the problem! PLEASE HELP!

I've fixed it now. I added the printer again on the PC it was connected to, and then connected to that as normal over the network.

I had the same issue, all I had to do was (after I had already tried to delete and re-add from Devices and Printers) was stop the Printer Spooler service and restart it. then I was able to add the printer again.
