Canon knowingly disabled Windows 7 support for all of the old products in 2009. You need a pre-Vista CanoScan toolbox version 18.104.22.168, it will work fine in Windows 7. I uploaded a copy on my website rust.mine.nu.
I have managed to locate drivers for your computer. You can download the drivers for your Canon CanoScan 5000F Flatbed Scanner here: Click Here.

I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.
My suggestion is this, I would google Canon Canoscan 500f drivers, just as I have written it to you. A page will pop up and download the latest drivers from Canon's official web site ( the drivers are dated). Before you install the drivers disconnect the cable from the scanner to the computer. Now install the drivers. Once they are installed reconnect the cable from the scanner to your computer with the scanner powered on. A window will pop up saying a new device or drivers are being installed.Once this is completed then reboot (restart) your computer and you should be able to scan again.
Try that vista driver. I tried some vista drivers for some devices and they worked for me :)
