I recently installed Adobe Lightroom (v1.4.1)
and now anytime I turn my scanner (Epson Photo V700
) on, my computer becomes instantly non-responsive and slow to the point of freezing. I have noticed since installing Lightroom, an icon for 'Adobe Photo Downloader
' has appeared in the task bar. If I exit this program first (right clicking the icon), the scanner doesn't have any problems.
My operating system is XP, and I have updated and scanned using Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware and Avast!. I also use ZoneAlarm as a firewall. I believe this is a driver conflict.
Does anyone have any experience of this?
Thanks in advance ,
PS. I wasn't sure if this belonged in 'External Applications' (because of the scanner) or 'Graphics... and Photo Editing' (because of Lightroom/APD). Please move if incorrect!
