I wanted to ask if there are any alternative softwares than Digital Image Monitor or HP Solution Center to manage the scanner part of my HP J6480.

My issue with the Digital Image Monitor is that it slows down my entire system, and causes errors when I try to shut down the computer.

My issue with HP Solution Center is that it requires so many prompts that it takes forever to scan and doesn't save brightness settings. I start up the Solution Center. Then I hit Scan. Then I have to tell it to show a Preview since it always messes up the brightness. Then I tell I tell it start. Then I have to tell it there are no many pages. Then I have to adjust the black/white threshold for every page. Finally it sends it to a PDF file.

My wife has been having some medical problems and I scan in all her records so I can E-mail them to doctors. It's kind of a painful process.

HP Solution Center is the very reason why I never buy HP All-in-one. This proprietary software is very bloating and very difficult to manage. The best alternative method is using Paperport (my favorite). Click on the link below to learn more about it.

PaperPort PSP Desktop for Hewlett-Packard

Or just use the free XP built-in Paint & Scanner & Camera Wizard.
