HP Scanner 4570c

Help please.
My scanner is getting old, like me, but has given good service scanning old photos, negatives and slides and I would prefer not to change it. However:
Horizontal lines appear on all scans in all modes and settings and the results are unsatisfactory.
I have to use IE6 to enable all scanning options, with IE7 only basic scans are possible.

Any ideas to sort out the problem and failing that recommendations of a replacement would be appreciated.

It does sound as though the scanner is on it's last legs, flycatcher1, but try using Irfanview (it's free) click here to scan to, it might make a difference, you never know.
