Hello - Look in c:\windows\setupapi.log
for more info. It seems some had luck with uninstalling/
reinstalling all USB related items.
Some had problems related to the INF files and missing
function dependencies.
Check out googles advanced search and see what others did:

Thank you!

I was trying to install the scanner to the parallel port, but we did have a
USB HP printer installed. I deleted the printer drivers and let the machine
redetect the printer and scanner. I then was finally able to successfully
update the scanner driver to what we needed. Whew - problem solved!
