I have just installed HP DescSck II V 2.8 on my Windows 98 note book (I did it under 95 too and have the same problems). The problem is that my scanner (HP 3C) is attached to an Adaptek 2940 SCSI card in the docking station, everything works fine when the notebook is docked and the scanner is on, but if the scanner is off (which it is most of the time) or the notebook is undocked (which it is for most of the rest of the time!) then if I open control panel and close it again (without doing anything) then I get a nice blue screen which says a fatal exception has occured in VXD IFSMGR. Sometimes the PC hangs, soetimes the system tray on the right of the task bar all but disapears. If I go into control.ini and comment out the line that loads hpscnmgr.dll then I don't get the exception, but I can't check the scanner either. Anyone got any ideas??
