Microsoft pipeline host error - Dell printer 968

I have a dell all in one printer 968W which gives the error Microsoft pipline host stopped working. I un-installed and re-installed the software and could not even print a test page. This printer is a year old and has been doing this periodically until now this message comes up all the time. The workstation is a dell inspiron  530 Vista home premium no results from the dell or microsoft sites and googling produced no results.

It was a Vista update that caused the problem and Dell support corrected the printing issue but, not the scan problem of only seeing half of the scan on preview. Maybe, there will be a resolution in the near future,
