I restored my computer to factory settings and the drivers

Customer Question

I restored my computer to factory settings and the drivers for my canon pixma 870 went away. How can I download the drivers?
JA: Has your Canon done this before? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Never done this before and the printer is probably 4 years old. Only became a problem after I formatted the cpu hard drive.
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: Have All-in-one HP18 and windows 8.1
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Nothing happened until I formatted the hard drive. Printer had been working fine and now the computer doesn't recognize it.
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just how to go about downloading the drivers for my printer. Think if I have them my computer will recognize and accept my printer as the default printer.
