getting the same error everyone else does - Another program has control. I have uninstalled the software, uploaded the drivers from HP, reinstalled. Still getting the problem and can't scan. i can print no problem. The scanner was working fine without hesitation. Didn't use it for awhile and now this. ugh. What to do?
This is the other part of the error code: 8, [(0,5,-2147467259)]

Then I will send you a PM with some more directions, that you will have to be sure to follow to the letter. It is very important not to deviate from the steps.
Make sure that the USB cable is removed, and the computer restarted after all that.
Then download the Full-Feature software and drivers from the HP website.
As a folloow up question, do yoy have antivirus software on your computer - and if so, what is it?
Let me know!
