|If your scanner is a USB type, you'll have to uninstall the driver software, unplug the scanner from the computer and start over.|
If you leave the scanner plugged in while loading/updating the drivers, they will install but the scanner won't work right.
After doing above, wait until the install asks for you to plug in the scanner, otherwise you may have problems.
Just be glad it's not an HP scanner. You'd have to go thru the Registry and delete entries before you could get the thing working again.
Chuck Norris was once asked why he doesn't use an iPhone, he responded, "Same reason I don't use tampons."
