I recently purchased another (I must be a masochist!) HP scanner. This time I went with a brand new scanjet 2400.
It works well, except the software that I got installed this really annoying icon on my desktop "share-to-web upload folder".
Hey, if I want to put my scanned images on my website, I'll use FTP, so I right-click on the icon (and I wait for the menu to popup, so I can select the delete option)… I wait, and I wait. Hmmm the computer feels like it has locked up.
I restart the PC, try to remove the software again, but it kinda freezes again… It looks like explorer.exe is locked up.
A web search uncovers a lot of people with similar problems, but few solutions that work. I eventually found a solution at: http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversion/index.php/t14606.html
Excellent solution guys!
