    My brother got a virus and now he cant scan!


    My bro got a virus, tried to scan, but failed. He did a fresh start and did it but then had to shut down. Booted back up and it disabled again, but this time the enable disappeared. Any help?

    :)

    Please confirm you don't have a list like this:

    e.g. from here (or via the control panel):

    If not, suggests deeper problems. To which uninstall option are you referring? (A picture is worth...)

    Application crash - Brother iPrint & Scan

    Thanks, yes I'm aware of that option. But it does not to multi-page PDF scan into the same document, do I had to scan each file individually and then combine them. It was time-consuming when doing a lot of scanning.

    Suggest you have a look at NAPS2, it works very well. My brother got a virus and now he cant scan! :)

    Windows Security Virus Scan

    Yes that's exactly what I have. If you notice there is an uninstall option next to organize if you scroll to other updates ie. office, but it will disappear once you scroll to the latest updates.
