I just installed XP Pro for my dad and got the most recent XP software for this scanner from HP's website. The install went great and the scanner works like a charm. The only problem right now is that XP seems to think the scanner needs to be removed. In the system try there is an icon with a bit of harware and a green arrow facing left and down above the hardware. The icon is for 'safely remove hardware'. I can't seem to get rid of this. Anyone know why this is happening and what can be done? thanks!
