Updating drivers before uninstalling the old ones causes problems sometimes.


Unplug the scanner from the cpu, go into your device manager, find the scanner, uninstall the drivers, delete the device from the device manager, reboot. Plug in your scanner again and reload the drivers off the CD or the newer ones you downloaded.
