    I want to scan an item with my Canon Pixma MG2522, the only scanner I have USB connected to my Win 10 PC, but when I click on "NEW SCAN" I get the msg that the computer is trying to connect to the scanner...then everything freezes and I can't close the program without using TASK MANAGER. This happens when I use Win 10 P Scan/Fax. I have also tried a 3rd party program called NAPS2 with exactly the same results. I have another of the same printer USB installed on a second Win 10 PC and both scanning programs work with no problem. Can anyone help?
