I use to have one of these scanners , did you try right click on the driver icon and choose compatibility mode

I also have a Lide 20 and use Windows 10's native Drivers

thanks for you suggestions, but I've still got the problem, device manager reports the the device is working and the driver is up to date and is the best one for the device.

I have since found out that Canon do not supply drivers for Win 7 anymore!!

I have no experience of this software so cannot comment on its suitability. It is shareware and therefore only free to try although Wikipedia suggests that you can use it for free as long as you put up with the watermark.

Did you try the troubleshooter?

I don't use mine more than a couple of times a year.

Last time I think that I used Windows 10's generic drivers
