    Wink Printer problems

    Hi guys, back again

    Had to reload my XP Home, again and have one remaining problem.
    I have a newish Canon MG 2260 that I could get to work, very well, before.
    Printer works, okay, but can't get scanner to work.
    Says I need XPS Essentials Pack.

    I've downloaded about 5 or 6 and can't get them to run and some don't even download.

    Left one running, last night, when went to bed and still sitting there this morning.

    You only need one. probably this. Did you download this?. I would also update it to SP3, / then install the rest of the updates. If you haven't yet

    Well, some didn't download at all, but after my last posting I tried a few more sites.
    A few wouldn't run, but finally found one that did.
    Installed and I've done two scans, so thats good.
    Problem, it would seem, is with Firefox.
    Download manager, or something, but I'll work on that.
    Thanks for all the helps, again???

    Well I would be careful, what sites you download files from. Some can be dodgy

    When you get that error are you trying to open My Image Garden or IJ Scan Utility?
