windows 7 is a new os hence all the drivers are not available yet. so install the vista driver in the older version compatibility mode which can be done by opening control panel of your computer then go for the options of progams and features and then install the older version program. then it will work
I had the same issue with the white horizontal lines with myCanon Powershot series camera too. When taking pictures, I get the horizontal lines. In daylight, I almost cannot see the pictures because it gives me very bright output. In darker areas, the picture can still be toleratedbut white lines are still there. Although when I am taking a video,the quality is good.
As part of their advisory: "Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon willrepair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting theabove-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction iscaused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost ofshipping and handling in connection with this repair."
Tend to agree with you that it's a common design problem for the A430, but it's a very different issue than CCD failure mentioned in you referenced article.
Please see this Fixya post instead of the one that you mention above. Unfortunately, Canon has yet to officially recognize this A430 specific problem. But if you reference this Fixya post, (include a link), when contacting Canon (if in US, email is CareCenter@cits.canon.com. You'll have to research www.canon.com to find an equivalent UK email contact), who knows you might get lucky

It is certainly the CCD failing.
Now you have had it over a year so warranty is out.
But there have been instances of certain CCD's being subject to a recall- and the camera being replaced.
Give Canon a support a go - you may get lucky.
