Hi- I knew I had Xerox, but not NWWIA. Just ran search on NWWIA and it showed up as C:\Program Files\Xerox. Yet when I click properties on Xerox, it shows as an empty folder. Have you tried Google?

Xp has inbuilt ability to scan and OCR docs.

This ability was licenced from Xerox, despite the fact that every scanner uses it's own ocr program much better than XP built in generic hit or miss form

If you are determined to use the inbuilt XP version, if your scanner will let you, it will use the Xerox/nwwia folder as tempory holding place for the files while it processes them.

It is perfectly harmless so leave it alone.

the same applies to the redundant frontpage folder in XP.

That is there for people who have created webpages with 9x and frontpage express. the files that have been created look for that folder to hold tempory information, while they are being changed. ignore that one as well
