I do not know if this will help you but I tried to install a HP scanner and it would not take. On HP's site it was reccommended to install it in safe mode. I did and it is working correctly. Even a driver update for it from MS Update an hour ago.
To do the install I had to create a new folder on the desktop > copy in the English folder and the single files > reboot into safe mode and run setup.exe from the English folder.
| yes,..installed them,..restarted,... still automatically recognizes
| the scanner as unknown usb device and automatically installs it. Go
| Any ideas? Thanks
