  1. Sure, if you disable the port the printer is connected to. There are also admin options to disable printer setup for accounts.

    You may be better off asking a different question with some details about what is happening.

    I am new at this and will try to explain what has happened. I loaded Avast and ran a full system scan. Result every thing worked fine except I Could not connect to my printer ( Canon MP 620 0 which I have had for years. I finally located the CD with software for the printer and reinstalled it. I can still not connect to the printer. I have not disconnected it so it must be in software at least I am thinking that, It is set for port 1 and the computer is set for port on also. Don't know what else to tell about it. Thanks again

    How is the printer connected? MP620 can be in WiFi, Ethernet or USB.

    Avast could be blocking a port on the system. Try uninstalling it and see if the printer works again. You could also fully remove the printer from Device Manager, and re-install it using a different port. You need to keep some sort of anti-virus installed, Avast or something else, AVG, MS Security
  4. Thanks for the help I will try all the suggestion. I have also contacted Canon and they are sending me new software. The nprinter is connected bu USB, Thanks again
