Googled it and found someone else has had that problem and solved it. Seems to appear a problem with Canon software. Have a look here and see if you can follow and do what they suggested. http://tinyurl.com/df7t4x

Thanks pheonixI have already spent hours going around and around in circles trying to get an answer but haven't managed to. Have found a lot of people with the problem tho'. Was hoping some down to earth kiwi whizz would be able to give some straight forward advice ....

Easiest way round is to use ccleaner/tools/startup & stopp it laoding at startup then try uninstall reinstall your cannon printer...

Just in case you don't have ccleaner installed http://tmcmb.wikispaces.com/ccleaner

Or you could just run msconfig that windows has built in and then disable any canon software that starts up when windows does.

You could But ever seen the list & how long they can become by just unticking them using ccleaner you can actual delete from the startup list once you know whats what & wont go through the startup msconfig list on PC startup...

YAY!!! THANKYOU icoufa...you're a genius! Found the list in CCleaner (already had it), would not let me disable it so deleted it. Have checked it out - no annoying msg on starting up and printer works fine. Thank you so much.

OH NO!!! It's put itself back on the start up list again. HELP!

geek_fluffyb, Jan 30, 9:35 pm

the startup list when you go start-run-msconfig ?

geek_charles.j, Jan 30, 10:04 pm

Yes.. All Canon items unticked here.

So have you been Through the Options menu which are probably included in the Canon Software and looked for anything that has wording to the effect of.."Start the Program on Windows boot".If you find anything like that then change the options around..Maybe that'll cure it..Failing that,,you maybe need to go into the Registry and look through the Run/Run once for Canon stuff and try removing them from there,,Though why CrapC/Msconfig and other assorted programs can't halt it I don't know.
