1. Try uninstalling the OCR software then (if you have norton anti virus go into and disable auto protect mode) then reboot once in windows hit ctrl,alt,delete and end task everything except for explorer and systray then reinstall the software


if that did not work then try the following

2. Right click on your desktop and select properties go to settings click on advanced then go to the adapter tab the name next to the chipboard is the name of your video card write it down... then go to the performance tab and put it to none. apply it and reboot.

if this did not work then let me know also let me know what you have for a video card.

There is some scuttlebut that the HP software does not deal cleanly with long file names.  You may wish to put the software in a standard short filename directory such as c:\scanjet.
