If I try to scan documents then surf the net, the scanning stops. Programastake ages to load if the scanner is running. This is the data fomr the sys info:

I would suggest that your scanner software has not installed correctly. Also most modern scanners connect via usb. Read the scanner manual as a lot of usb devices need the software installed before the device is plugged in. It would probably make sense to uninstalled the scanner softeare reboot and start again.
