Ok go here:

Click here

Click on the "Select OS" drop down box and select Windows Vista

Then download the "MP160 MP Driver Ver. 1.11 (Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000)"

Install that once it's done and you should be back up and running.

Thanks,
Rob

The little picture at the top of my Yahoo web page that I click on to print something. (Aren't you glad you drew this assignment?)

Ok. Is this in Internet Explorer?

Rob

Yes
Expert:  Robert Preston replied 7 years ago.
Ok in Internet Explorer, click on the "Tools" menu then "Internet Options"

Go to "Advanced" and click "Reset"... confirm that, then close Internet Explorer and reopen it and see if the icon is back

Fun times. With Internet Explorer closed, Go to the Start Menu, click Control Panel then Network and Internet and then Internet Options and then follow my instructions
