It wouild help if you were to tell us WHO made your scanner (HP,UMax etc..)
and the model of it. You may be able to download an XP version from the
maker's web site.

Go to the support section for the manufacturer of your scanner. You should
find everything you need there if your scanner is supported for Windows XP.

There are a number of Microsoft programs including MS Paint and MS Word that
enables you to scan directly into them. However inorder to use your scanner
you will likely need to have the drivers for it installed as well as it's
scanning engine. Visit the manufacturer of your scanner's website. Do a
search for software or downloads for the make and model. It is very likely
they will have that software available.

A number of programs will be able to use your scanner as long as you
have the proper driver loaded. IrfanView, a free graphics viewer
(www.irfanview.com), will use a scanner to get an image, no doubt
there are many others.

If you don't have the driver, check the manufacturer's web site.
