Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
First, stop using Windows Help and Support for any error that shows up, it mess up things completely.
MP160 driver from Canon's website
Click on the above link AND make sure you select the correct Windows version that you have. Then the driver link will show up (and it displays Drivers on top of it).
Keep in mind that driver availability is dependent on the Windows version that the printer can support.

If the printer can scan, then it is not a driver problem, however drivers should be installed in any case, just to exclude possible software malfunctions.
Check also in installed printer settings, in control panel, that the printer is set up as default printer. Try printing a test page from control panel printer properties.
If printer does not even print the test page, and you reinstalled drivers, then it is an hardware problem.
Probably the printer head has dried out ink, or the cartridge is faulty.
Try first replacing the cartridges.
If that does not work perform head clean procedure a couple of times.
If it still does not work, then the printer head must be removed and replaced, or soaked in cleaning solution to clean it.
