Have you tried using the Canon uninstaller?
Look to uninstall in one the submenu choices.
Note: If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
A few nights ago XP Pro started running slow - like something was tying up the processor. I couldn't find any process running so I did several bit level virus scans (Safe Mode) as well as spyware scans. Everything came back ok.
Soon it started taking two, three, even five minutes to start up. The only recent program installs were Canon's CannoScan drivers and Windows Defender. I tried removing these programs but the Add/Remove Programs utility would not populate with any programs. Tried a system restore but everything is the same. I've even tried "resetting" system restore via command live.
Now I figure I have to wipe Windows and start all over. What sucks is having to re-download all the drivers, programs, etc. Is there any way for Windows to back-up the drivers before I go through the torture of reinstalling the devil?
Thanks in advance...
