In a recent post a non operating scanner proved to OK when tried on another machine. Implication therefore duff cable or a Windows[XP Home] problem. The owner has the Window Home Disk- stored in a CD wallet and has discarded the original jewel case. So it may be likely this item will be needed if I under take repair or reinstall operations. A Google of recovery tools- some of which have to be paid for- some are free and one my protection blocked as a dangerous site.
Any comments please on Product Key recovery would be most welcome
