I need help getting my Canon MG2520 printer to connect to my HP desktop


I have an HP Pavilion Slimline 64-bit operating system Windows 7 Home Premium. I recently purchased a Canon Pixma MG2520 All-in-one. I have connected the printer and downloaded the needed canon drive to get my printer to work. I am connecting my printer via USB. I tried to use my printer and it shows that there is no printer. It will not let me set the Canon Pixma MG2520 as my main computer. When click to add printer I get this message: Windows can't open add printer. Operation could not be completed (error 0X000000c1). Can anybody PLEASE help me.
