    Get another scanner. If Canon is not nice enough to post the answer to this problem then I would go with another brand entirely.

I removed the glass, used a tissue towipe the inside of the center track, cleaned the glass and finally put some silicon spray on a Q-tip. The q-tip was almost dry, not dripping with the silicon. I ran it up and down both sides of the inside of the center track. I made sure it wasn't wet. then I used the Q-tip to clean the two bumps on both sides of the scanning wand. Put it back together and no problems since. DanInJapan

Had the same problem. take off the two framing pieces of plastic that run along the edges of the glass (they are stuck on with glue so use a knife). prize the glass out of the unit and check that you can move the scanning moving part up and down. remove any bits of plastic. test the moving parts by replacing the glass and scanning. mine seems to work fine now, fingers crossed. x

How do I determine what version is the twain driver that came with the canoscan LIDE 90?

You have to go into Control Panel, Device Manager, locate the scanner in there, right click Properties. From here just select the Driver tab, and there you've got the driver version and date.
You can get the latest driver from the Canon website.

I lost the set up CD ROM for the CanoScan Lide 90 and now the scanner doesn't work with my new computer

From this link you can select your operating system (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7) and download the official drivers for your canon scanner. I assume that your scanner is lide 90, not lide 25 as there is different model at the headline and at your post.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
