Universal Scanning Software
Is the scanner software always bunlded with the scanner driver ?

I installed a driver but there does not seem to be any scanning software with it.

Does anyone know If there is a freeware utility the works with all scanners?

A freeware app like Irfanview will do the task.
The scanning software is there in the driver__Twain, it's accesed often by an image viewer like Irfanview and others that are similiar.
I use PaperPort, but it's not free.

You can get Irfanview here: http://www.tucows.com/preview/194967.html

Most image editors should allow an image to be aquired from a scanner.

Twain stands for Technology Without An Interesting Name", in case you were wondering...
