Gonna try this link you gave me. But first, any advice about removing old software safe?
The scanner software is in Apps Folder - I'll just drag it to trash?
Same to printer drivers - just take from library folders and drag to trash?

Re: Printer repairing permissions?

No I meant Sophos is what I recommend for Windows users. I see, thank you. I've been thinking about changing anti-virus program for my Windows as well. Good to know what to look for. In Mac though it does more harm than good then. To conclude: 1) Gutenprint and the old installation CD haven't harme...

Do not under any circumstances download, install or run MacKeeper.


Sophos Home is bad for Windows?

Re: Printer repairing permissions?

A separate scanner driver is listed there. I would try OS X's universal scanner app Image Capture first. If that doesn't work then you can try the scanner download at Canon's website. Oh, something like that exists... I hadn't even heard about this. It honestly sounds to me like you may be a little...

Re: Printer repairing permissions?

Do you think CDs like these could be therefore harmful in some ways? Harmful, yes… in the sense that they won't have bug fixes or security patches that later versions you download from the manufacturer's website will. Does that Canon driver download contain the software for scanning? I see it liste...

Re: Printer repairing permissions?

I recommend never, ever using the CD that comes with a printer. Even when you buy a new printer, these CDs were likely printed many months prior and there is undoubtedly newer, updated drivers available on the website. I would also uninstall anything that you've attempted to install so far, includi...

Re: Printer repairing permissions?

Repairing permissions occasionally fixes problems with certain system errors but it's pretty rare these days that ever needs to be done. Why are you using Gutenprint and not your printer's OEM drivers? What kind of printer is this? It is old printer I used on old Windows. I tried using installation...

Printer repairing permissions?
