Having a very odd issue when trying to share my printer (Canon Pixma ip4300).

When I try to enable Printer Sharing in the Network & Sharing Center, it gives no errors, but just stays off all the time.

When I try to share the printer from the printer properties page I get the following dialog -
"Printer settings could not be saved. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000007a).
This also writes an alert into the event log (System), giving event ID of 19 and when following the link to the MS site leads here - http://technet2.microsoft.com/windo...26b2-4239-b369-ef2765da44cc1033.mspx?mfr=true
I have tried the instructions in that article, all to no avail. I have also done an sfc /scannow which came up clean.

Any clues anyone? This is baffling me.
