Hewlet Packard Scanner on XP

HP Scanner/copier model scanjet 4200c. I have downloaded software from the HP website to operate the scanner on my XP system. When installing this software there was a warning from Microsoft not use it as it might "damage" the computer. Are MS trying to stop the use of HP equiment?
The software now installed allows the copy funtion to work but not the scanner and the computer is now running very slow.

Absolutely not, (MS) it could be for many reasons like incompatible drivers, incompatible OS, mind you if you can double check the right OS platform you have downloaded and the right bit as well, (32 or 64), XP or Vista, can you double check pls, these are some reson why it become too slow

you might want to check on uninstalling this again

Scanjet 4200c Software and Windows XP SP2


Check out the 'Compatibility mode in the Help section of My computer.
Reset the computer to run the software as for Win98.
However if this is a Win 98 scanner then difficulties must be expected.
Scanners nde for Win95/98/Me expect to receive instruction from computer in DOS.
XP is NTFS and many scanners simply do not work with NTFS- not withstand makers having kludges of drivers to download - in general they did not work.
