1. Turn OFF UAC (User Account Control): Open the Control Panel (Classic Style), then double click on "User Accounts", then in the "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off", UNCHECK the box for "User Account Control". Reboot the computer.
Once that's done, Vista may warn you of the lack of security by throwing a red or yellow warning shield in the lower right corner/system tray. You can disable that as well by opening Control Panel, then the "Security Center" icon, then select the "Don't Notify me and don't display the icon" option.
2. Select "Run As Administrator": Find the executable for the driver setup, RIGHT click on it, choose "Run as Administrator".
Hope this helps.

Cannon S-750 Printer (on network)
I continue to get a message on my laptop that says I should install the proper printer drivers on my laptop. So I have been trying to install the drivers for the above noted printer (which is installed and attached to another computer on a home network) on my new laptop, and when I try, I am getting this message, "You do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation". This occurs even when I'm logged on as "administrator"! What is a higher authority than that?
I tried to search these forums for an answer, but apparently this is a very common issue because I got more than 89,000 hits, and they were all over the map. So please excuse if this is overkill, but I sure would like to get my printer woes fixed.
