There was a typical long list until recently, and now they're all gone. I was looking for my scanner which isn't being recognised, although the printer (it's an all-in-one HP photosmart 8180) is recognised and will print. I've run driver updates, registry cleanups, and system restore but with no effect. Ach!

Thank you, Bremner. I tried system restore but it had no effect. Then other issues started to arise that suggested Windows corruption so I did a clean install. All's well now, so far, and I'm up and running again. No gain without pain!
