Can anyone recommend a good (virus free/reliable source) free OCR.

You should have got one free with your scanner. Which scanner do you have?

It'a an old Epson Perfection 3490 Photo. I had to download the basic software when I installed Windows 8.1 to get it working again, but that doesn't seem to include OCR software.

I have just had a look a the MajorGeek website, and a number of suggestion came up, including PaperScan Free 2.0.10 (which contains adware). MajorGeeks click here

Ok, thanks for that.

If you have your old CD you will probably find Abby Fine Reader on it. It may well work on 8.1
