Weird PSCS2 Problem

    I am having a strange problem with PSCS2.
    I use a Epson Perfection 1660 scanner using the latest Twain driver (Version
    5.something).
    I was trying to scan a picture and anytime I set the resolution above 300
    DPI in the Twain settings PSCS2 would lock up after the scan was done. (It
    looks like in addition to starting the scanning process with the Twain
    driver, WIA - the windows software to acquire images - is also running. I
    can see the window showing scanning progress from WIA in back of the Epson
    one.)
    When I use PS Elements 2 or PS Image Ready CS2 the problem does not occur.
    I have already tried removing the Twain driver and reinstalling it. I am not
    sure when this
    problem started occuring because I rarely scan above 300 DPI and definitely
    did not try since upgrading from CS to CS2.
    Any suggestions? Thanks, Steve

    It sounds like Windows has installed the WIA drivers and you have installed
    the TWAIN drives.

    My first suggestion would be to uninstall and delete the Windows WIA
    driver(s).

    Then (if necessary) uninstall and delete the existing TWAIN driver(s), and
    then reinstall the **Epson** TWAIN drivers specifically using the **Epson**
    instructions.
