Problem Installing Printer Driver for Canon MP460


I successfully installed the software for my Canon MP460 MFD & started using it. Then a week or so later I tried to print something, & found the printer name & icon greyed out. It said printer driver not installed. Tried to reinstall from disk & got runtime error (PROGRAM E:DRIVERX86DRVSETUPSETUP.EXE - abnormal program termination). Same from website download. The disk doesn't give an uninstall option - when I try to remove the program, I get a longer runtime error (FAD5-9546-44f3....). Nothing I try seems to make any difference.

What Had I Done (Knowingly) Since First Installing it?
Downloaded Windows Defender & numerous Windows Updates (I had previously not had them, going back ages, despite Automatic Update being set). A recent Update included IE7.

What Have I Tried?
Reinstalling & Unistalling as above, having disabled Defender, Noron Antivirus & Windows Firewall. Also System Restore back to pre-IE7, Defender & Updates, & pre-original installation.

Aaaaarrrgghhh! Can anyone tell me what I've done &/or how to fix it? Microsoft & Canon support worse than useless.

    Thanks, ser71

    Well, I've got NOD32 now, which looks good, & downloaded & run the Canon driver, but when I go to the printer it STILL says it's not installed. Clearly something still getting in the way, or something fundamental I'm missing.

    No, XP Home.

    I have replaced with a new USB 2.0 cable, & it still says the printer driver is not installed.

Cannot download mp navigater drivers. Loaded mp navigater but when I click on icon it asks me to download the driver.How do you do it?

You have to download and install both the driver for your printer and the software. MP Navigator is software that your printer uses, not the driver.

Go to Canon page support for your printer.
Start here:
If you don't find your printer in the product menu, type your printer model (for instance, MP140) directy in the search window at the top center of the page, select 'Consumer Products' in the listbox next to it and click on the 'Search' button.
On the destination page, click on the 'Drivers & Downloads' link.
Then, under the 'Drivers & Downloads' tab :
  • select your OS.
  • download the available driver (under "Drivers")
  • download MP Navigator and other software available you want to use (under "Software")
Install the driver.
Do not connect the printer to the computer untill the driver is installed. Do it only after the driver is installed or if and when the installation program instructs you to do so.
Only then install the software.
