Q: Recommend a scanner

I am using an old visioneer scanner and it isn't living up to my expectations right now. I need a scanner that will make quality scans at a high resolution. The visioneer looks good, but it is over 5 years old and I am sure tech has come a long way in 5 years.

I am trying to just make CD's to take to the store for prints, I do not need an all in one. I only need a scanner that will make excellent copies for a low price. I am strapped for cash. Does anybody have any recommendations for less than $100.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Recommend a Trojan scanner.......

Hi Gail,


I'm running BoClean and I use The Cleaner for scanning on demand.

<A HREF="">BOClean </A> , however, is all one needs.
Updates are frequent, service is phenomenal, and it has a higher detection rate than The Cleaner and Tauscan.

Moreover, it is one of the few antitrojans protected against the new generation of trojans that are able to disable your antivirus/antitrojan,firewall, without you even noticing.

Im looking and buying one of portable scanner just to reduce my jobs.... normally my mum gives me documents, and photo and asked me to scan with them and then email to mum. i thought it was fun but again and again 2 photo/documents approx per week and im getting fed-up.

I've told my mum that i dont use scanner (HP PSC 750) and would be glady to give to her but she told me she dont have a room for it. So this means i'm keeping HP PSC 750.

I thought of Portable scanner which can be easily connect to USB and pack away easy. All my mum usually gives me for documents (A4) and some photo.

If it come cheap and good quanity... i'll buy it

Perferred if they sell in Ebay

Just wondering if anyone knows of a good windows program (freeware or shareware) that will do a disk scan similar to Norton Disk Doctor.

Specifically I need it to check and show bad sectors and show whether a file is actually using that sector.

Also it should optionally allow you to try and fix bad sectors.

I would like it to be able to process FAT and NTFS.

I don't want to get Symantec's suite and pay for lots of things I don't need.

Any recommendations would be most appreciated.

Hey all!

Can I get a recommendation on a scanner software please? I need a good scanner software for scanning pictures. My scanner is a Canon CanoScan LiDE 60 and it uses a TWAiN driver. So the scanner software would need to support TWAiN drivers.

I would primarily use it for scanning pictures. If it can scan and do character recognition of documents as well, that would be a good plus. But I don't mind using a different software for this.

My PCs OS is Windows Home XP SP3 and for real time protection I use Comodo CIS and Spywareblaster and use SAS and MBAM as on demand scanners. It is a long time since I have had an infection but the other day I somehow got a virus which both Comodo and SAS picked up straight away. As my buddy in Australia had sent me an email that day with some photos, although i'm not certain I am thinking that is where the virus came from. My main email account is Hotmail and as I cannot see any email scanning function in my Security programs wondered what you others use for scanning your emails. Is there a program that is easy on resources which I can use to scan my emails or does Comodo do it for me behind the scenes so to speak?.

I use AVG 8.5 (free) and couldn't be more satisfied with it. It has an integrated email scanner for Outlook and various other clients, but I'm not sure if it has a web based email scanner.

I highly recommend getting it and keeping it up to date, especially since you can program updates and scanning to run automatically.AVG Free 8.5

Hello !
I'm looking for advice before purchasing a combination printer & image scanner. I've used all sorts of draw, paint & photo edit programs with success, but I STILL prefer drawing on paper as I find it less distracting.

I'm looking to find a medium-priced printer ( $200 or less ) that I can use to scan sketches & line drawings to send to clients, etc. I'd like to be able to pick up fine cross-hatching at .03mm and register several values of grey, while serving as a good all-around printer. Does anyone have a machine that they're really happy with and would recommend ? I'd truly appreciate your input. Thanks ! Raoul W.

I am looking at purchaseing a new scanner. I have several thousand slides and negatives that I am needing to scan and want to find the best equipment for this at a decent price. I've seen some people say the Plustek 7500i SE is a good dedicated scanner. Even the Plustek 7200i SE has a good rating. Is there any that are better or that you might recommend instead. I'm really struggling on what direction to go. A dedicated film scanner is suppose to be better quality but at a much higher price. I've looked up flatbed scanners for under $500 and the CanoScan 8800F seems to have the highest rating and good reviews.
If anyone could point me towards one they like or recommend I would greatly appricaite it.
Like I said I'm getting to the point where I'm getting confused on which direction I should go.
Thank you for your help.

Hi expert types. I have a canon scanner/printer MX320 and I just hooked it up to a new laptop.

Hi there

Just looking for some advice on an issue I am having at work.

A user cannot scan with the above scanner. They are getting the following error.

Scanner Status - 0 Error Number =1116 Twain Data Source Not Found Please Reinstall Scanner Software.

The Scanner is detected in Device Manager (No errors next to it)

I have uninstalled the software and reinstalled but the user gets the same issue.

I have added them as a local admin and once the software is installed I have logged on as the user. It detects that new hardware has been found and continues with the install but then they get the same issue.

Another user can log on to the machine and it works fine!

I have reseated the scanner to force it to pick up the connection but SAME ISSUE!

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Wynonna,

I sense that you are usually very well versed in repairing your own issues so I doubt that I can help you; however, lacking any response to your issue, I will throw in "my2cents":

Please do not take offense to any of my suggestions if they sound too basic:

So, I assume you have already downloaded and tried the latest drivers from Brother?
Brother: MFC-7460DN: Downloads: United States

Can I also assume you are using it via a direct USB connection and it is not set up as part of a network and it is not wireless?

If so, can I assume you have applied the latest firmware update (9/6/2013)?

I have bought an Epson Perfection 1200S scanner, second hand. I hoped to plug it into the USB of my PC but only after buying it did I see that the 1200U model is for USB and the handbook for this 1200S model says that unless my PC has an SCSI board, I need to install one. The scanner came with an interface board but I am not confident about opening my PC to install it.

The scanner also came with a Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B, which is not part of the Epson package but I guess is an extra that the seller threw in. It has a USB prong on one end that could go into my PC, and the other end would fit the cable that attaches to the scanner.

Can I install the scanner without using the SCSI board?

A:Solved: Can my SCSI scanner run as a USB scanner?

From the looks of it the Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B is a usb to scsi converter so you should be able to plug it into the USB port and have it work. Seems like it should be Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B to SCSI cable to scanner.

While Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B did not give me too many things to look up... maybe you can provide a picture of this unit to verify....

either that or verify its something like this -

A:What UPS would you recommend for my PC?

I would look for one that would run your system for about 10 minutes to give you time to close out any files that you have open and gracefully shut down in case of a power outage. Just don't put your laserjet printer on the same line. Your monitor and computer should be all that is necessary.
APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V should be more than sufficient. Many are cheaper but you gets what you pay for. Some of the cheaper ones are nothing but a surge supressor.

As per title, I've been using ASUS motherboards for last 11 years and I must say they are worth every penny. First one was P4P800-Deluxe which lasted from 2001 to 2007 and second one is P5E3 which I'm using since 2007 till now.

I guess its time to jump on bandwagon and upgrade my system. I'm again very much leaning towards getting ASUS again, i.e. P8P67

I was wondering if I should try some other brands like Gigabyte or MSI. I know ASrock is sister company of ASUS so its like getting same motherboard for less money. What will you my fellow PC geeks will advise to go for?

I almost forgot to mention, I'll be getting Core i7 2600k very soon so motherboard has to be 1155 socket.

A:Recommend me new MB

All you can expect to hear is someone's personal experience with a brand, such as you just stated yourself for Asus. "I've owned leventy-leven brand X motherboards and never had a problem".

You can then go immediately to Google and find all kinds of horror stories about that particular brand.

Anecdotes are just that and mean little since the horror stories encompass all brands and you will play hell finding any authoritative evidence--just as it is for hard drives.

I've owned Intel, Dell, Gigabyte, and several Asus motherboards. The only one that ever failed was an Asus.

Signifying nothing. It's just another anecdote.

Look for the features you need and buy from a dealer you trust.

Make some wild-ass guesses and questionable assumptions about supposed build quality and quality control.

Hope it doesn't break.

Hope even harder that you never need to deal with customer support.

A:Which of these PC's would you recommend?

Both processors are dual core so they are about even, but I do like the E6600 better than the E6400 simply because it's faster and has twice the L2 cache. The geForce 7500LE just plain sucks as a 3D accerator while the X1600 is about three times as powerful but still isn't anything to brag about.

well theyre all pretty similar in terms of how they perform........

7 Port USB 2.0 480Mps Hi-Speed HUB Laptop Notebook NEW on eBay (end time 27-Nov-09 20:29:35 GMT)

it states ''USB 2.0'' all over it, but it does not come with an additional power adapter...this means whenever you plug in more than 2 devices, the USB block defaults all connections to ''USB 1.0''
so, if your buying a 4 port hub you should be ok, if buying a hub with more connections make sure it comes with an adaptor..

First of all, hi guys.
I am asking a simple question i'm gonna change my CPU (AMD Athlon X2 5000+), because it's almost dead and i need some suggestions.My motherboard is Albatron KM61S-AM2, and i need CPU for AM2 slot.Some friends recommended me "AMD Phenom II X4 940" - is it good ?
Actually i don't have a lot of money so to be in the likes of max 100 $.
I was pretty happy with my CPU(Athlon 5000+) for gaming so i need something in that region.But also i have one more question if i buy "AMD Phenom II X4 940", will i be in need to change Motherboard, RAM, or GPU(Nvidia GeForce 9800GT), in other words is there gonna be a bottleneck effect ?
Thanks in advance.
PS:Sorry if my English is bad, it's not my native one

A:What CPU will u recommend ?

What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.

A:Can someone recommend a CPU

From the MB and CPU specs, I would assume the PC is at least 5 years old?

It is possible to upgrade the CPU a bit, but finding Athlon XP CPUs is getting fairly difficult and expensive. Also, upgrading any other part in such an old system would be a waste of money since you won't be able to reuse it in a future system later on.

Your money would be better used if you saved a bit for a completely new PC with up to date parts. There are plenty of fairly decent PCs on the market these days for under $500 which would perform many times better.

Hey guys, i got a tall order for you guys.

i was wondering if it would be advisable to have 2 AV's, 2 Anti Spyware/Malware, and 2 Fire walls? Recently i had a glitch in the system, some Backdoor virus is trying to get in.
Bitdefender is blocking it left and right so im safe. Am i over reacting? or should i amp up my security? So i considered running 2 of each.

heres what i considered

Main AV: Bitdefender 2nd AV: Either MSE, Avast or Avira

Main Anti spyware/malware: MalwareBytes 2nd Anti: Superantispyware or any other

Main Firewall: windows7 firewall control 2nd wall: pctools firewall or anyother

what do you guys think? i mostly use my puter for school, games, and im constantly downloading new software.

Check out my specs and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advanced.

A:Do You Recommend it?

While running 2 AV's is possible, it's definitely not advisable. There's nothing at all wrong with running a virus scan with more than one anti-virus program. Because it's just a scan - it starts, it scans, and then it's done. Real time monitoring, which is installed with most anti-virus programs is constantly running and scanning files downloaded to your machine. Running two or more real time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict which could result in any number of error messages or failures. The most advisable thing to do would to be to find a good, reliable anti-virus program that you trust, and make sure it's always updated with the latest definitions.

Same for anti-spyware programs, as long as there isn't two real time monitoring engines trying to do the same thing at once, you should be fine.

The same goes for firewalls, however, I just wouldn't recommend running two software based firewalls at the same time because, as with AV programs, they monitor in real time, and two programs trying to do the same thing at once can and usually will cause problems. However, if you have a hardware based firewall, such as one built into a router, there would be no problem running a software and a hardware based firewall.

As for your case, if you believe BitDefender is doing it's job, I would leave it as your anti-virus, and use MalwareBytes and run a periodic scan to check for spyware, and either use the default Windows Firewall, or another 3rd party firewall and all should be fine. But remember, the best security is purely common sense while browsing

PC Diagnostic software? Something that looks for potential problems and can fix them but still giving the user control over what gets repaired?

I have used Norton WinDoctor for years but recently it repaired a registry entry and caused big time problems. I had to use System Restore to back up to the previous backup. Ever since I have been reluctant to let it clean much up with out eyeballing the change first. I have also used Norton CleanSweep for a long time but it will not always remove software that it says it does.

I recently tried PC BugDoctor. It finds a lot more errors than WinDoctor does but their licensing fee is quite high, so I've never bought it. And it does not say what it's going to repair so I have never had it try.

After using bundled nero package with moderate success I uninstalled all of it when my computer became very sluggish.After doing this my computer came back up to par.
All I want is a straight forward music library that I can download from with out all the documentation and that is compatible to the lightning lll.I've heard of musicmatch,jukebox 8.0, etc.I am new to all of this and just want "one program" that I can use without all of the incompatibility issues that arise.

Nero isn't an archiving program, it's just a burner application. I have no idea what a lightning III is or what it pertains to in this situation. MusicMatch is used for cateloging and playing your MP3 music library and does a pretty good job of it. There are other applications like WinAmp and many..many others.

What Antivirus would you recommend out of these 2? Avast free or Trend Micro Maximum Security? I'm trying to not use windows defender its not really good.. 

A:What antivirus out of these would you recommend?

Both of those have good reputations, though both will tend to use more system resources than Windows Defender does. The installers for both of those will handle the issues related with disabling Defender as part of the install process, so it's really a case of choose the one that has the best price for the features included. Note that there are two different Windows Defender products. With older OSes, Defender was only an anti-spyware package, not an Anti-Virus. With the current OS, Windows Defender has the functionality of Microsoft Security Essentials rolled in, so acts against both spyware and malware. All my machines are runnign Windows 10, and I use Windows Defender on them without adding a third party package.

Gigabyte GA-P35-S3L motherboard. (200$ Mobo/CPU Combo)
And maybe a x1950 or 7900. Probably the x1950 though. (200$)
So thats a sum total of 500$ give or take a few dollars.

Anyone have any suggestions/opinions/thoughts/questions/answers/advice? What if anything to upgrade/downgrade? But you cant hit over that 600$ or else!

I very occasionally need to send a fax from home. It would be handy to have a (preferably free) bit of software for that purpose. What would you recommend? I have Xp sp2, 2mb connection and Microsoft Office if that is useful information...

A:Can you recommend fax software?

I use the free version of eFax but I think to send faxes they charge a small fee depending on how many pages you send.

A:Recommend Me a Motherboard

This is a decent board and performs almost good as my 590sli (which doesn't have video). It has onboard video, 4 ram slots, 2 ide + floppy, 4 sata, etc. I've got that in a second pc and works great.

I'm not sure which other boards you can look at, since to me it doesn't matter if it has onboard or not, I usually start with the chipset and go from there.
This one has a 570 chipset which should perform well.

Would you recommend any extra specifications above those recommended by Microsoft to run Windows 7 Professional OS?

System Requirements
1GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 GB RAM (32-bit) / 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
Hard Disk space
16 GB available disk space (32-bit) / 20 GB (64-bit); for the download version, an additional 3 GB is required
Media Drive
DVD/CD authoring requires a compatible optical drive
Internet access
Sound Card
Music and sound require audio output
Video Card
DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM 1.0 or later driver

A:Would you recommend any specifications?

That all depends on what you are planning to actually do with the system. The OS requirements are just the starting point in choosing your build hardware and they are the bare-minimum requirements. Browsing the net, video editing (or other hardware hungry applications), and then there's gaming in an entirely different league of its own.

However, I personally would not choose a system for any reason that has anything less than at least a 2Ghz x2 core (Intel or AMD) and 4GB RAM. 1Ghz CPU and 1GB RAM would be way, way too frustratingly slow for me to work with in any capacity and Windows 7 is rather resource hungry in its own right.

And for video editing/gaming, I would not like anything less than 3-4Ghz x4 core CPU (Intel or AMD) with 8GB DDR3 RAM and a mid to high range ATI GPU (never been a fan of NVIDIA myself). Or even better than that, but that would massively wound the wallet.

Hope this helps you somewhat.

A:Somebody recommend me a motherboard please

No need to state the current specs because I will be changing the SSD, RAM and CPU anyway. I just need to know a great motherboard.

Just starting to get into gaming, and have a new PC setup, with a 6-core AMD cpu and 32gb RAM, but with an ATI 3000 series card, so I know it's not the best video card out there (can't afford the good ones yet).

Would like to know what games you recommend that will work with this video card (low end). I have Assassin's Creed 3, but the video is choppy, and even some older games like Broken Sword 4 have video problems as well. Skyrim seems to be OK if I set the resolution down to medium or low.

A:Recommend games?

It would help if we knew the exact number of the card, not just "3000 series", but really, any game made in 2006 or earlier should run on it, many games at max. Battlefield 2, Battlefront 2, Company of Heroes, Command and Conquer: Generals (and it's expansion, Zero Hour). The Call of Duty franchise has undergone essentially no graphical improvement over the past five years, and as such has very low graphical requirements. Although they won't run on max detail, your graphics card should be able to handle all Call of Duty titles. If you turn it down to minimum graphics, you should be able to play the Mass Effect franchise and the Dragon Age franchise, as well as more recent Command and Conquer games like Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3. If Skyrim works, then rest of the Elder Scrolls series is obviously open. The vast majority of indie games, many of which you can find on Steam, have very small graphical requirements. Any MOBA game will work, most if not any MMORPG will work. Despite having an outdated graphics card, you still have a large variety of options open to you so long as you're prepared to turn down the graphics settings. Games I certainly would not try without upgrading your graphics card include Battlefield 3 and Crysis (amongst other resource-intensive games).
Relevancy 33.54% what I read about it, its a program that can remove windows components, which doesnt seem very safe. Upon further reading, I derived that nlite can make an image of windows, with only the components of your choice. Which you can then burn to a cd.Here is some more info from the homepage: if you dont use component removal, it still has some good features, like Service Pack integration, Driver Integration, and Hotfixes Integration..which I assume would help your comp run faster.I dont have and DVD Discs, or a seperate HDD, to backup on before I test this out, but when I do, I will let you know how it worked.If anyone has already tried out n-Lite, please give us your opinion

A:Recommend me new Motherboard, CPU, and RAM

That proc is definitely a good one.

I use AMD x6 myself, and I love it--it's ridiculously fast and slick. I'm a fan of Gigabyte or Asus motherboards. I don't know what to recommend as far as Intel boards, but for AMD, a Gigabyte FXA-UD5 is hard to beat. It's what I use

You should look on Newegg and check out boards and procs by spec, then compare by highest rated. It's amazing what a thousand reviews versus maybe ten can say about a board

For example, just snuffling around Newegg, I came across this Intel Gigabyte board: - GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb&#47;s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

This thread will probably get moved, but I wasn't sure where this should go. I am looking for a better chair, I'll keep the specifics of my chair secret...But I want a chair that allows me to slouch with back support. But I don't want to spend 250$. I'm thinking 150$ tops. I want to be able to lean back and read my book.

Now my chair leans back, but not enough and I'm always finding myself slouching more than the chair permits and it means my back makes an unsupported bridge between the bottom and the back of the chair. My chair only has a small mid section support on the back. I want full support and a good lean to it. Maybe what I want isn't possible, but.........

Any recommendations?
