Ts5000 series drivers -please help

I just purchased the ts5051
I am using PC win 7 x64
All installation went smoothly, drivers, software, all good. The printer is now on my system via USB. Appears as the default printer in printers and devices..great!
I go to printers and devices, click on the printer and then on printer properties and....NO PRINTER IS INSTALLED...
I reinstall the drivers (updated from Canon). Same thing!!!
Something on my pc is blocking it.
I have disabled windows firewall and malware bytes......still the same.
I know the printer works as I installed it on my laptop and it's fine.
Canon tech support can't fix this. It's a Windows thing but I need to track it down.
Please if anyone can help fix this I would be so greatful.

Thank you for your response and although I understand what you say, surely there will be similar or alternative models to the 5051 also, the driver says ts5000 series, therefore a windows fix (if anyone knows) would cover the whole series.

After all, this doesn't seem to be a model specific problem, rather just my windows blocking the printer. Need to find out why.....

I do ope someone has better ideas than Canon UK, since they were unable to help me.
