Do you have canon printer software on the computer? This usually happens when you delete the canon printer software off the computer but you still have the registry settings. You can probably use msconfig to disable the process. So far i cannot find exactly where the canon registry entries are to be able to delete them.

Heres a vbs file that may fix your problem. You RUN this at your own risk as i have not used this file.


Run the attached .zip file then right click on the returned silent runners.vbs select open ignore all messages and be patient after 10 secs a output will appear under the silent runners.vbs just wait awhile till it populates (1-2 mins) then open it. Use the ctrl +f keys to search for cnmss locate the reg location open regedit navigate to it and delete it.
(the above instructions come from another forum, so again this is at your own risk.)
