Can you read the window that shows up? Maybe even the title of the Window?

Try a couple of these free, online scans to see if they'll help out:

Let us know the results and we can move on from there.

Why couldn't you run the first program? What error messages did you get?

it said my browser (firefox) could not open it so i went to internet explorer it starts then just says after i click install
We were unable to install the scanner i have tried all of the trouble shooting could not get it to install
i tried using both versions of internet explorer (64-bit) and none worked

Please follow the instructions for each troubleshooting step below and then click Retry Installation to try to install the scanner again.
Scanner installation complete

Please click Launch Scanner to start the scanner.



Install Now
Retry InstallationPlease Wait...Launch Scanner


Troubleshooting steps

Internet Explorer may have temporarily blocked the installation of the ActiveX control for the scanner

To fix:
Check to see if a yellow bar appears at the top of your Web browser window.

If so, click the yellow bar and select Install ActiveX Control...





Make sure you choose to install the ActiveX control for the scanner

To fix:
When you choose to install the scanner, a dialog box will appear and ask if you want to install this ActiveX control. Be sure to click Install. Once installation is complete, the scanner will start in a new window.
