    Can you open scanner dialog from another program, as Adobe Acrobat, Illustrator, OmniPage, TextBridge, Word (Insert | Picture | From scanner...) or so?

    You might try looking at the Scanners and Cameras properties to see if you can change the behavior of the scanner driver. My experience with Canon's scanner software has been that it's half backed at best, even if the hardware itself is nice. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    agreed on software. Still trying to download a new driver, have installed and uninstalled. Did get it to scan from WORD but it reversed and cut out some copy. have never done well with scanners.

    more popbacks. This phenomenon is not just with the Canon scanning software. It just happened when I was downloading a program with Download Accelerator.

    Still popping back to tray at bottom of the screen. Was just running, streaming avideo, Julia Child cooking, and the media player popped back to the tray. It seems if the screen is there and Iget the cursor on it, it stays and I can take action, ok, cancel, etc. Like some poltergiest thing. It is like my system is too fast and gets away from me.
