    Hey guys!

    I went to Start--->Programs--->Accessories and there isn't the 'Scanner and Camera Wizard'.
    I've also tried to search it and the search found nothing.

    What can I do?

    Tnx in advance! :D

    Try this;

    Make sure your scanner or camera is plugged in then
    Go to Start -> Run type in;

    wiaacmgr.exe

    Press Enter or click OK

    See if that brings up the wizard...

    Cheers

    ok, tnx for the reply...
    i've tried to do what you said and the result was "There is not scanner or camera connected... "
    But I don't understand one thing - i've got 2 more computers at home with win xp that are not connected to a camera or scanner, and i have the 'Scanner and Camera Wizard' under Start---> ....

    Is there an explanation?

    Hi, that shows the wizard itself has not gone missing, It could just be that somebody removed the shortcut from your machine? I'm not actually at a windows machine and cant remember if it's a default shortcut.

    You can re-create the shortcut by pointing at the executable above.

    Cheers

    Sounds to me like the Twain driver for the scanner is not installed ...
    the Scanner is not connected and turned on ... or it's Broke.

    In the attached zip file ..
    You will find the shortcut to the Scanner n Camera Wizard

    You can drag this Shortcut to your desktop .. and see if it works.

    You can also drag it back to...
    Programs ► Accessories ▼ Scanner n Camera Wizard .... To replace the missing shortcut

    Did you look in System Tools?

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Is "Scanners And Cameras" in the Control Panel?

    I too have the same issue that the camera wizard is empty in the control panel and does not automatically pop-up when I plug in my camera like it used to. I recently (5 days ago) removed the Total Security/Antivirus Pro_2010 virus with AVG, combofix, and MBAM. The virus seems to be gone but I noticed that when I do a scan with Avast it comes up with 44 files that it is unable to scan: "The system cannot find the specified path". The files are all located in WINDOWS\ and most of them have duplicate file names at the end of the path ie. WINDOWS\addins\addins. I also see that one of those files says "connection wizard" in it. When I go to my C: drive under the listed file paths there is no file/folder. I'm assuming this is all tied to this virus. How do I find out where those files are or went to fix these issues?
