After checking the UMAX site for XP drivers, choose whatever is the latest drivers they provide, and then try to install them as normal. If it installs normally but does not run correctly, right-click on the executable for the scanner program and choose PROPERTIES and then adjust the COMPATIBILITY MODE to Win2000 or WIn98 and try running it again.

If the drivers for the scanner will not install, I had good luck tricking the operating system into installing the drivers by changing the OS description in the .INI file of the driver package, though this is something not so easy to do.

Good luck...

Vertical colored lines in a scan

If the lines appear in the same location everytime, then it is from the scanner glass. Clean it thoroughly. No solvents except Isopropyl alcohol for cleaning.
