Try to renew your scanner driver and update office and windows as well.

What version of office are you using?  Also, are you trying to do OCR, scanning a document or a picture?  What scanner(s) are you using?  Sorry, need some more information to help you out!

For scanning purposes, I usually use the open source (Free!!) iCopy http://icopy.sourceforge.net/
(Depends if the driver is well written though)
This program easily scans, scans multiple pages, and saves as PDF if necessary.
