When i want to scan a document and click on the "MfTBox". The printer works properly otherwise. I believe that I might of erase some files when I was trying to get rid of some applications of add ons like PalKan search engine etc.

Let this complete and when it has, tell me if you still get the error please.

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know the results please.
