I have a Mustec 1200ED scanner, which loads a program called Watch when windows starts.

The scanner works fine but Watch causes problems/delays when I try to shut the computer down. It can take 2-3 minutes or even locks up.
I have disabled watch in MSConfig. and shutdown now takes only a few seconds. Watch has to be running for the scanner to work. Reinstall hasn't helped.

Has anyone else had this problem, or know of a cure?

Thanks

I had this problem but it was 3 years ago so don't recall the fix details. The answer was supplied by the Mustek help people in NZ so try them. It did involve stopping 'Watch' from msconfig as you have done. From memory, this was a common problem in Win98 and wasn't just related to the Mustec scanner. Win98 SE fixed it I think.

I had win98se up until recently with that scanner model and never had watch in my startup. I just installed the drivers from the CD, nothing else, and imported most of my scans from photoshop
