    Doesn't recognize the Scanners on my two scanner/printers - My Twain window is blank

    I have a 64-bit Windows 7 Pro PC and two printer/scanners, an old Canon MX700 and a more recent Brother HL-2280DW. The Canon used to show up in the Twain window but hasn't in over a year, but it would still scan after displaying an error message. Both of the scanners Twain drivers show up in a program called Paperport, and both scanners show up as "Imaging Devices" in Device Manager. Both show up as printers to Irfanview. I installed the Brother files as an administrator, I've paused my anti-virus Avast, I uninstalled the Canon driver and reinstalled it fresh from the Canon website, but nothing I do causes the scanners to show up in the Select Twain/Scan source window.

    Sorry to state the obvious, but are the scanners switched on?
