I want to install my new Canon PIXMA MP610 all in one printer but need to know how to disable the anti-virus and automatically loading programs. The directions say to disable them before you start to install the printer on the computer. I have a windows system. Can you help?

Re: disable anti virus and auto loading programs
I think that suggestion really only applies if you run into problems when trying to install the driver files. Most current antivirus programs will let you load drivers and associated software without interrupting.
If you do run into snags, you can close the programs (or temporarily inactivate them) by right-clicking on the icons on the task bar in the lower right corner of the desktop and selecting 'Close'.

if you have a oem install disk uninstall the present installation disconnect from the web disable you anti virus and reinstall. if your down loading from the web save the files to your desk top. disconnect from the web disable your anti virus and run the install from your desktop. scanner drivers are often thought to be viruses by antivirus programs and will prevent them from being installed
Yes. PIXMA MP610 is a multifunction printer that has printer/copier/scanner capabilities.
Just install the software and drivers supplied with your printer (or download them from CANON ) and connect the printer do the computer.
The printer sofware will guide you through the operation of scanning an image and saving it to a a file in the computer.
Below is a link to CANON product support pages, from where you can dowload the software and drivers for the printer and also guides and manuals. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=ModelTechSpecsTabAct&fcategoryid=2610&modelid=15604
uninstall the printer and all of software. then down load the drivers and software and save them to your desktop. then disconnect your pc from the internet, disable your anti virus and fire wall, then run the install from your desk top. alot of anti virus software see's scanner drivers as virus like activity and will not allow them to be installed. all in one installs like this need to be done without anti virus software running. i think this will solve you problem ive solve it many times like this
I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.
It is unclear what type of problem you are having, but disabling antivirus should generally only be done if you are installing a program, or if you are troubleshooting and this is one piece of a total process. If you are still having an issue, make sure you have installed the printer driver, and try the Instructions button on the Main or the Maintenance tab. (This is from the CD-ROM provided software & user's guide, which can be quite helpful in working through your issue.)
