I think I've heard that complaint before. Head to HP and see if they have a new version. But what good is this device monitor? I dumped these a while ago because they did so little.

Hi,
Thanks for your response, at the moment I am shutting down the computer once a week and the cpu starts over again from zero, i have read a thread that the new software update from HP has a problem that the scanner doesnt work with the update.
