Hi Richard, I have an Epson All in one printer/scanner. I am trying to scan a document to my Desktop but it shows an error message about a problem with ABBYY finereader. I wondered if this is due to what I did a couple of days with you when I disabled the MS Services on start up or is it a totally different issue. What do I need to do to get my scanner to work again?
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Go to Services and enable anything in the list with Epson.
Do the same on the Startup Tab
Click ok, restart and tell me if it now scans please

The ABBYY finereader was disabled in the Services tab so I've checked it, restarted and it's done the trick. Thanks!
