Photoshop 7 scan artifacts
Jul 15, 2013

I have just had a system crash and have had to reinstall Windows 7 and all programmes. (No data lost, thanks to good backup) When trying to scan though, I am getting some terrible artefacts and I am unable to see why.  Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this.  It is on all the negatives I am scanning.  Up to the O/S crash, I was able to scan wothout a problem

My system is running Win 7, with latest patches and upgrades

Scanner - Canoscan 9000F with latest driver

Software - Photoshop 7

Scanning using CanoScan 9000 TWAIN and Scangear in advanced mode, 120 format 6x4.5, output resolution 3200 (changing this makes no difference), unsharp mask on, FARE Low, Fading correction medium.  Altering these makes no difference though.

This is the Scangear prescan:

This is the result in photoshop:

There is a horizontal line running across the wings of the cars and triangular artefacts have appeared.

Any advice would be gratefully accepted.  Thanks for reading my request.
