Hi Carey:

My OS is Win 98 SE and had a perfectly running HP scanner 3530c untill I updated to IE6 from 5.5. Every time I try to scan something now an IE box opens (not the browser itself) and tells me I have an error on the script of this page and do I want to continue running it. No mater what I choose to do it scews up file://C:Program FilesHewlett-PackardDigital Imagingbbfedirectordirector.htm /line 261 char 4, which then adds more lines and characters as I try to get it to dissapear.

I went to the HP site and as per instructions uninstalled IE6 and service pack 1, uninstalled the scanner, reinstalled IE6 and serv pack 1 and reinstalled the scanner and still the darn thing wont scan. So now I have a perfectly good scanner that won’t work. My hard drive is partitioned. Should I reinstall Win 98SE or what please? To complicate matters I live in Greece and the scanner directions are all in Greek , my Greek is pretty good but….You’d think they’d add English just in case but no

thank you
Harry

Try this: In your Control Panel, double-click the Internet Options icon, click the Advanced tab, and place a CHECK next to DISABLE SCRIPT DEBUGGING.

Hope this helps,
Carey
