After moving my pc to another room (and obviously reconnecting all the cables) I had a problem with the boot time of my pc.
It was taking about 5 mins to get past the POST check but I found out that the problem was that I plugged my scanner in a different usb port than before so I changed it to the original port but the problem was still there.
Then I uninstalled the scanner and all the software that came with it.
Since then it has been impossible to reinstall the scanner.
I have tried cleaning the registry and system restore (to a point when the scanner was working) but whenever I try to reinstall the software for it I get the message that it cannot load the TWAIN driver and I should restart the pc and try again.
I have tried to install manually (without the bundled software) but that hasn't worked either.
It is now driving me mad.
Please can someone suggest something.
BTW I have winxp and the scanner is Canon D1250u2.
