This one has me scratching my head.

I installed a new Scanner (Epson Perfection 2580 Photo), then realized my C:\ was getting full so I uninstalled the software and tried to reinstall it on D:\ but it did not give an option to change directories.

I therefore reinstalled the software onto C:\ but the scanner won't work. After exploring Control Panel\Administravive Tools\Services I discovered that Still Image Service is missing. This runs the stimon.exe and stisvc.exe Windows apps.

Question: how is Still Image Service reinstalled and what made it disappear?

Had the same trouble with my Epson scanner. All I can think is that I uninstalled the driver for a camera which was no longer needed, and it messed up the stisvc service. It can be reinstalled as a service using a program called INSTSRV.EXE. Program and instructions on using it here:

Worked for me :D

STIMON.EXE?

Still Image Monitor (Stimon.exe) is a tool that is installed by Windows Millennium Edition and Windows 98 when a Universal Serial Bus (USB) scanning device is successfully enumerated.
XP's equivalent is Windows Image Acquisition (WIA).
