XP fails to shut down with scanner connected

I run Windows XP Home but following a recent addition of a Visioneer 9220 scanner to my computer, Windows will not shut down. it gets to the "Windows is shutting down" page and hangs. Only a reset will clear it once I've taken out the USB connector from the scanner.
Any ideas please. Thanks, Bill.

Thanks for your response Fruit Bat but I cannot get your link to work even when I type it in. The page just will not open. Any suggestions?
