Canon iR 1018 drivers for Windows7 not recognized

Problem: Canon iR1018 driver for windows 7 64bit cannot be installed

Installation was in two parts - one part was instaled by drivers provided by Canon web page.
However, second part - scanner - could not be instaled by any driver at Canon web page.
Solution was - to use drivers for XP, Vista.

Another problem is that Toolbox utility for scanner is not offered at drivers' Canon web page - it can be found via google.

Xerox 8550 yellow colour

Problem: Yellow colour is tinted on Xerox Phaser 8550

Problem was caused by difference in solid ink -- there is one with bright yellow colour which works ok, and the one which is darker - which was the source of the problem with yellow colour. As shown on pics within their package.
