Yes, I have done that,
it acts like it is worming up , and the scanner makes a noise, then
it just sits there with a "hourglass" on my screen for like, forever,
like it is taking a real long time to warm up, then I just close the program
because it sais "not responding" , do you think I should just give up on it?
Thanks...

Can you disconnect the scanner

Use add and remove to uninstall the scanner software

Prefetch is clickable for more information

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Reboot

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run defragmenter

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2007 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Disable the anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Check the anti virus programme is running

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

Click optimize and improve then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


Check device manager for any ?

If there are none

Re-install the scanner software

Restart the PC

Connect the scanner
