  1. What are you running your NIC at?  Try setting it at 10 full duplex if its set at 100 full duplex.  Alternatively, try unintalling your NIC driver and reinstalling it.  These drivers become corrupt over time.  Further, when is the last time you updated your NIC driver?

  2. Eventually you will purchase online.  Most things like bank forms are secure what they don't tell you is if your account is pilfered it is most likely due to your computer being infested by a virus, trojan or whatever.  I read about several small business operators who worried about entering information into online banking forms but the bank officials told them the forms where absolutely secure. 

    Again , what they didn't tell them was if their computers became infected then entering information into the online banking forms could be had by hackers.   

    Eventually, they lost thousands of dollars because a keylogging program on their systems recorded information as it was being typed into the secure bank forms.  Yes, the courts sided wit the banks and the banks never paid back the money and those small business owners learned a valuable lesson: security starts at home>

  3. To all who use Paypal be aware a scam email is going, see below:  This email says you have added another email address to your account and  urges you to login to your account.  Don't do this!  I have contacted Paypay Customer Service and they have acknowledged the email is a scam and the scamers are trying to gain access to your account information. 

    This was the third time I received this email and when you click on the links you believe your at Paypal it looks very real and one can be fooled easily.  Paypal asked that all emails of this nature should be forwarded to: [email protected]    I would also ask Paypal what they are doing about this as it is so easy for one to be fooled by this scam.

    Sincerely,

    You've added an additional email address to your PayPal account.

    If you don

  4. I did it I got the damn thing working.  I did a scan disk and discovered a flaw on the HD and did a system repair using my Windows XP Pro cd.  This worked I am back up and scanning. 

    Thanks again to all the outstanding individuals who offered their support it was most welcomed and appreciated.

  5. The error when I try to scan stays, "Communications Error when trying to communicate with scanner", I can do anything else with the printer but not scan with the full version of software.  Just to make things interesting I downloaded HP's Image Zone Express and this ALLOWS me to scan because it allows me to choose the kind of communications needed between the software and printer (WIA or TWAIN).  But this version is a real dumped down version and I want the full version damn it that is why I purchased this particular unit. 

    I had opened the full version and the express version at the same time and as stated above, I can indeed scan while in the express version but when I switch to the full version can't.  Man this is really getting to me!!  This is why I am certain it has something to do the the WIA or TWAIN.  It must be somewhere in the registry settings but I can't figure it out as of yet.  I relentlessly searched the HP site for answers and there are few like the link I provided in an earlier post. 

    Again, thank you all for your efforts this is indeed a great forum with great individuals.

  6. Yes, I have been there numerous times and called HP support but those #$%^ing bastards want

    $$$ before they will assist because my warranty ran out.  I tried to explain it was the download of their updated software which resulted in the problem but they didn't give a damn. 

    I know the problem is in the communications with the scanner (Twain/WIA) but can't get it work.  I mean I have tried everything.  I know the solution is simple but can't figure it out.  Thanks to all for taking the time to reply.  I believe the answer is in the link below to some degree but still it won't work!  I tried reinstalling the old software on several different levels but  to no avail.
