There used to be a Vista Driver for your Printer on the Cannon Website ... As it is no longer available and there are no Windows 7 Drivers sorry I do not know what else to suggest ..

OK I have finally solved the problem myself.

1. I spent about an hour watching a lady from Microsoft do Remote Desktop to try and solve the problem. She failed, but eventually said she could solve the problem for $99, "guaranteed".

2. Nowhere is the correct driver for the Canon i865 visible on-line. There are various "add-on"s but no actual driver for love nor money.

3. Eventually tried to do a system restore yet again, this time using a Win 7 Repair Disk which I specially created for the purpose. But no, it failed. So I went back to the one before - even though that was in early January this year(!). This means I would lose all new installations and all settings changes since then.

But now came back saying it had failed too.

4. So then I rebooted windows normally and guess what? I said that my System Restore *had* worked after all. And by some miracle yes my printer has come back to life, even though all the messages said that it had failed.

I have now wasted two entire days of my life on this.

But you know what? This is why I hate computers. They are supposed to run on pure logic, but they don't they are inconsistent and moody.

Shame on you Microsoft.
Shame on you Canon.

Re-installing a driver just shouldn't be that hard. Really - it just shouldn't. >:^[
