Hi there!

I can and would like to test. I don't understand which are the driver
options and how I can turn them off and therefore will need some
attention with that. Also, should the scanner be connected to the
computer when starting the snoop or should I connect it then and  also
catch the initial communication between the laptop and scanner. I can
get the snoop for Win XP and Win Vista (a friend's laptop), if needed.

Awaiting further instructions.
