WhenI attempt to use the Acquire facility in my image editor, the hour glass appears for a lengthy time. I found a program running called wowexec.exe. I terminated it, and the image editor connected with the scanner. What caused wowexec.exe to run? Why, when I end the process is the connection between my image editor and scanner completed?

WOWEXEC.EXE is a "shim" to run 16 bit windows applications on a 32bit Windows O/S. If your scanner driver is invoking it, you need to look for a proper driver for your O/S for the device. It may also be the image application, but in any case, it's time for an upgrade.
