As for the Scanner, go to Control Panel and un-install the Scanner, re-boot the PC and reinstall the software for it.

Another way is to open your Control Panel, click on System and in that box you'll see a tab called Device Manager. Find your scanner there and choose to remove and re-boot.  Plug n Play should recognise the hardware and ask for the disk.
