I was working on getting the Canon ImageClass 4150 machine to work on a machine with Vista installed. I downloaded the new driver and upon trying to install the installer informed me that I needed to uninstall the previous instances of "MF Drivers" in order to reinstall.

I ran a utility included in the setup zip file that is supposed to remove previous Canon drivers in the 4100 series. I removed it from Add/Remove programs and also in the Device Manager. I've searched the computer (including hidden files, etc) and can't find any previous instances of the driver. Can't figure out what else I need to install.. Any help please?

MF refers to the model group...ignore the fact that the second link refers to Win 7. Both links are provided as just info to consider.

The above solution didn't work.
But I was able to solve it thus:

Under Win7-32bit, go to 'Devices & Printers'> (JUST) Click on any installed printer device> In top menu bar, there'll appear a command named 'Printer Server Properties'> Go to 'Drivers' tab> Select 'Canon' driver to be deleted> It'll search and list again the driver to be deleted, click 'Delete'. That's all. I've used this procedure when no other solution provided by google was working for my printer MF4570dn.
