After nearly 3 years of trouble free operation, every time I try to scan text via OCR, my computer freezes. I've made no recent changes to my computer system so what could be the problem? Memory?
Suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Just a thought: is it freezing, or just sitting spinning the hard disk?

Have you done a defrag recently? How much free space have you on the disk?

Scanning wants lots of disk, and a lot of memory (so needs a lot of swap space).

Thanks for your response Graham...FYI I have 47% of system resources free; windows managed swap file on C: says 3418MB free; 3414MB of 8204MB available space on drive C: and 6513MB of 8204MB available on Drive D. Yes, I have done a ScanDisk & Defrag.
