The Canon Faxphone L75 attached to my XP sp2 computer stopped working overnight. When I go to printer properties & try to print a test page, it fails. sometimes I get the message "windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close", but, I also got a message that windows data protection had caused the program to stop.

My windows automatic update is set to download updates automatically, but to prompt me to install them.

I read on another post about turning the Data Protection off by editing the boot.ini, but I can't find my boot.ini, and in msconfig the boot.ini doesn't have the parameter shown that was in the post. I forget exactly what it was in the other post, something like /noprotect=alwayson, or something like that.

I just want my printer to work. thanks for any help.
