This is the CanoScan D066U Scanner Driver, if the software and hardware are installed it is required, if not installed then it remains on the PC. I am trying to find out how to remove the .exe file myself as it sits in the system tray using up resources. I have 'hidden' it from view but it still is there. If anyone knows how to delete it without too much trouble that would be great

This utility is needed to switch off the lamp of the CanoScan D660U flatbed scanner after a delay which can be set from 10 to 60 minutes. If this utility is stopped, the scanner's lamp keeps lighting as long as the PC's running.
