Hi, now when i try to scan after switching everything off it tells me i have to install a WIA driver?? Is it not possible for you to call me? I cannot see why you cannot reach me, my phone is here and switched on. Thanks

would you like me to remote connect and install the scanner driver for you.

after a computer shutdown the session need to reconnect
