    Hello Philip, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if downloading and installing the Windows 8 version of your printer driver directly from Canon at the link below may work better for you.

    Canon U.S.A. : Support & Drivers : PIXMA MP190

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi thanks but I already tried that and the printer works but it still wants to install the Update.

    Since the latest driver from Canon works, then I'd recommend to just hide this Windows Update to not have it listed and trying to install anymore. Maybe the next new version from Windows Update will work for you.
