This set of reviews was helpful. I am the new owner of a Mac-mini; have owned computers since Commodore/Kaypro days and am somewhat platform neutral (I know, I know).

One thing I am sure of, after twenty years of doing this, is that overcomplicating any system with unnecessary software/drivers creates far more problems than it is worth.

When I saw the file size of this alleged 'driver', I had to read the reviews. I think I will take a pass on attempting to use this software, though it would be nice to make use of my existing, reliable scanner. It is just not worth the risk of having to deal with the terror-in-a-jar that this driver could turn out to be.

If someone at HP wakes up and replaces this behemoth with a practical driver, I will be ready to reconsider my decision.

To all those who attempt to steam ahead with the driver, 'Good luck!' A couple of other bits of advice for that crowd: 1. no matter how inconvenient it may seem, backup religously (especially before a major system change); 2. not everyone who is not directly confrontational with you intends to help you; and, 3. get away from computers, TVs and gadgets enough to really live.
