Is there a way to stop the Windows Image Acquisition service from
starting--short of disabling it--when I open explorer, My Computer,
WinRAR, etc?

I'd like to have WIA start when I NEED it only, not every time I look
at a list of drives/folders for reasons utterly unrelated to my
scanner.

When disabled WIA, I get DCOM errors in the Event Viewer opening
anything with an explorer-like interface.

Thanks. :)

What is the service set to? Manual or Automatic?

Manual. It starts when any of My Computer, Windows Explorer, WinRAR
are started.

If I disable it, I get DCOM errors in the event viewer whenever I
start one of those listed above.

Regards and thanks for the reply.

Do you have a scanner, including an All in one printer, or a camera
connected to your PC?

No. I have a USB scanner that I connect when I need; every 2 months
or so.

Thanks for the reply. These types of posts were very popular back in the
early days of XP, thus line 57.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't see how "Restore Run Command" is
relevant to my issue. My run command works fine.

My issue is with WIA starting when explorer or My Computer is started.


Thanks
