You don't say what your Operating System is - but if XP then you can download from here. It's the blue download button below the verification code.

click here

Just click on "Download" to save the file when the file is saved then double click to run it.

DO NOT click on free driver scan.

I've just downloaded the same driver as Fruit Bat /\0/\'s link gives but from another link; click here just use the 'download mirror' link and nothing else!!
I've scanned with AV and SAS and malwarebytes and is clean.

Thought the link wouldn't work. Try; click here then click on 'download' in box, that will take you to the download page.

Thank you to all that helped me with the problem.But if there is anybody else out there that would know of any obscuer web page that have free drivers for download without the need to use a scan tool please let me know.

Thanks Again

Don't understand your question - what do you need the driver for? Make and model needed.

Puzzled as Sea Urchin is. The links given were for the driver. You need to watch where to click, as warned previously, so as not to download rubbish as Driver Scan. You had no need to use a scan tool.
Sometimes links lead nowhere on some sites and sometimes to bad sites. I always tread carefully when using a search engine to find older drivers and always scan them before recomending.

Sorry my mistake was in a hurry as i had to go to work and did not read the answers right regarding where to click as i had been on those sights earlier and thought that you had to download the scanner which i did not want to do,it will learn me to take a bit more notice of the answer when i ask for help.

Thanks Again

Can be a minefield to find old and discontinued drivers. Did it work and your scanner now working OK?

I don't understand why you didn't go straight to the Canon site. It took me about 30 secs to find software for the Canon MPC200 - straight from the horses mouth, so to speak.
