I have vista. I had problems with my computer, a guy from my internet provider came out and fixed it. He added another user. I had a printer, a canon ip2600, but when I try to print some thing now, it says I need to add a printer. How do Ireconnect to my printer?

You probably need to dig out your printer CD and re-install the printer driver from it. If you can't find it you download the driver from the printer manufacturer's website.

One 'gotcha' you need to remember with most USB printers is that you must have it turned off to start with. Install the driver and then switch the printer on only when you see a prompt to do so on the screen. If you try to install the driver with the printer already turned on, the driver may not be able to install or won't install properly.
Check your printer documentation or "Quick Start" printer booklet - it should explain the correct way to do it for that particular model.
