Scan Soft OmniPage SE4
Posted 22 November 2009 - 10:36 AM
I used Corel Paint Shop Pro X for about a year with no problem. Then, all of a sudden, every time I tried to open it, a window popped up saying ti was installing ScanSoftOmniPageSE4. Once it was "done," it informed me that ScanSoft OPSE4 was on a disk and I had to insert the disk. [HUH????} I have no disk with this on it. To cancel this ScanSoft window I have to click on cancel 5 or 6 times, go through a couple of other windows popping up telling me it's loading, and cancel each one of those.
Is ScanSoft something I need? If so, why was I able to use Corel for almost a year without needing to install ScanSoft?

ScanSoft OPSE4 is an OCR utility (Optical Character Recognition) that some folks use when they scan a paper copy of a document.
ScanSoft "assists" (but invariably makes errors) with converting the paper copy to an editable file form that will allow you to use your word processing application to make changes to the document.
You can "turn it off" or "disable" it from starting.
Start - Run - (type)MSCONFIG - Enter
Select the Startups(tab)
Remove the checkmark/tick from in front of ScanSoft items
Press - Apply - Press OK - Press Close
Reply "Yes" that you want your machine to reboot at this time.
The machine will reboot.
You will get a one-time nag screen that "changes have been made in System Configuration"
But we know that, because that's what we just did.
Put a checkmark/tick into "don't show this warning to me again"
Your machine should henceforth start without popping the warning screen about ScanSoft OPSE4
Let us know how this works for you.

Let's try it another way
Please consider running this simple utility that will help you get control of programs and processes that you wish to have running active, or not.
Download and install, agreeing to the licensing terms and allow to install with all of the default settings as preselected in the installation wizard.
When you finally allow CodeStuff-Starters to run
It will preselect StartUps Tab -
- Click on File
- Select - save as .HTML (name the report file - Startups Nov22.html)
In your next reply, post the file as an attached file (use browse and upload buttons -- at the bottom-right corner of your topic posting window where you are typing your next reply)
Please do not make any changes with Code-Stuff Starters, until after you post the requested information above and receive recommendations from a helper here.
