Help - Paperport Starts But Won't Open

Hi - I'm hoping someone can help with something that is really strange.

I tried to open Paperport in order to scan some documents. The app started and appeared on the taskbar, but when I tried to click it to bring it up to full view, it does not respond - just that app, not the entire machine - I can still use other applications without a problem.

I restarted the computer hoping to clear whatever was wrong. As it was coming back up it automatically went into the CHKDSK utility, and as a result, said that it was fixing an orphaned file, PAPERP~1 (or something like that).

When it finally got back to the desktop, I tried to launch Paperport again. Same thing. So I took the entire machine down again (shutdown this time, not restart), and it rebooted just fine. However I am still having the problem with Paperport.

Can anyone tell my why this is happening and what can be done to fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help!!
