Windows 7: Computer Crashes when printing

Computer Crashes when printing

Hi all,
I am writing for a friend.
Whenever he prints his laptop freezes. It gets halfway through the print and then the computer freezes. When it freezes it renders the computer totally useless until a restarts.

The print also stops as soon as the computer crashes, even if it had not finished the print. The printer only spews out the paper when he restarts the computer.

The computer is running windows 7 home premium. The printer is Cannon MP280

Thanks in advance
