I am sure you are running VISTA? If that is the case then VISTA has set the native VISTA Fax and Scan application build into VISTA as your default FAX/ SCAN application. The printer will work fine and I am sure that if you go to Start/ Programs - Windows Fax/ Scan and use the build in application of VISTA that you will be able to scan. If you do not like this change the default setting in control panel for Fax/ Scan to Lexmark.

I hope this help.

Try and open MS Word and import a picture into a document via scan, follow the prompts in Word and it should work fine. If you don,t have MS Word you can download a completely compatible application at Open Office.org. It also has the same functionality is free and allows you to save documents as .doc, .xls, etc. Sometimes a scanner requires additional software or drivers in addition to functioning as a printer. I have found scanning internal to an application a workaround or test for the scanner. If this works I would review the installation or contact the manufacturer or website. Or post and we can give it another try.

delete the norton internet security as its blocking the scanner files of your printer software .or try reloading the printer drivers again but if reloading the printer drivers does not helps then removing the norton software is compulsary as the files of printer are getting blocked so scanner is not working.
