    I have Vista too and the scanner won't work. It is recognised and Toolbox sees the scanner, the program starts to scan then hangs. In Control Panel it is shown as a scanner and successfully performs the diagnostic test. In windows fax and scan however it is not seen! I have scoured for similar problems and this is the first I have seen like mine. Can anyone help, it's driving me mad. I have a HO1010 laserjet that isn't supported in Vista and now this won't work. Well done Microsoft again.

    I have the same scanner and installed the software that came with scanner in Vista. I selected English as the installation language and the scanner menu opens in Spanish. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times with the same effect. I downloaded a patch from the Windows website with no success. My Canon i860 printer has issues as well. The printer is supposed to be plug and play in Vista. It will print but now with no preview screen as was supported in XP. So my scanner is now a "CannotScan"

    Yay Vista!

    This scanner will not work with Vista. I have just been through that and finally bought a new scanner. There is, at this time, no solution according to Canon.

    Same here. Looks like vista needs to buy me a new scanner.

    Ditto I too have the same problem I really like this scanner and I don't see why I should have to buy another one. Boo Hiss Vista!

Help me..whats going on with windows xp home edition

When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.
