Epson scanner problem?

  simonsup 20:08 01 Jul 2010

Hi when i click on the epson scan icon on my desktop it says cannot start scanner but if i
right click the scan icon and choose run as administrator it works fine?
i`ve uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled the drivers but same thing happens, maybe a setting somewhere?
Im running win 7 home with a epson sx405 all in one printer fax and scanner.
Any idears peeps?

Right click on your icon - Properties - Compatibilty Tab - Remove the tick from "Run this program as an Administrator" - click Apply - OK
