This summer, i bought a nice colour printer/scanner, the Canon Pixma MP130
Works awesome. But, whenever i would have it turned on (uses USB), any Image application would become impossibly S L O W!!
Well, here's what happened:
After my format, this time around i only installed the default scanner program, and didnt install the like 10 other programs that came on the CD... ( probably good software, but i have NO use for them! )
Come to test my scanning ability tonight, program doesnt work, says scanner drivers arent installed.
I decide to uninstall the program. Then, attempt a scan with the Windows Scanner Wizard.
Guess what?? WORKS!!
What's more : NO MORE LAG!!!!
Now my printer/scanner can be online, and my computer isnt lagged up.
Anyway, if you want my opinion, if you get a printer/scanner, only install the printer drivers, and leave the rest to good sotftware that works... like windows scanner wizard, photoshop, fireworks.
(Just so happy i fixed this, thought i'd share the story with you.)
Have a good one.
