The scanner file will open in your browser offline. I use Firefox and it opens quickly. You may wish to make the `Work Offline` selection if the browser keeps trying to connect you.
The file for ABBYY FineReader should open from `Start/All Programs/ABBYY FineReader 6.0 Sprint/user`s guide` or if you have opened the program, you should use `Help/Help Topics` or press `F1`.
The Help panel will open in its own window and topics be selectable from there.
In the event the file is corrupt you can either try a re-install over the top or uninstall FineReader completely and re-install it again.
