Windows 7: Canon Printer trouble

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Canon Printer trouble

I just thought I would tell everyone about a recent problem I had with my networked printer at home. We noticed that we could not print from any machine on the network wireless, wired or USB. I checked and checked until I was blue in the face but I could not make any headway. The printer would make test pages just fine and nobody has access to make network changes but me. I ended up reinstalling the driver on all machines to correct the problem. The only thing I can think of that would have done this is a Windows update. Anyway, just thought I would share my story so if anyone else has a problem like this they might get it fixed sooner than I did.

All machines are Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit.

This may have been caused by the Windows update possibility that you mentioned. This MS website may explain it further for you.
