Default to scan documents

Is there a program to scan documents?; I have a 3-1 HP Photo-smart C6280 which came with a nice scanner program then when HP updated the program, it deleted the scanner program for some reason.
I had it put back on ... again it deleted the program EVEN THOUGH I have not allowed HP to update the program.

Is there a program which operates well - one you would recommend - which would scan whatever [sometimes just text, sometimes photos included] and allow for editing once on the computer?

Sure hope that one of you wonderful computer wizards can come to my rescue,
with all sincerity, and wishing all the best of wishes for your continued success(es),

Welcome to the forum anne-ology.

I haven't used it, but FreeKapture may do the job.

But maybe you should uninstall the HP program/driver then visit HP's website, download the latest version(s) for your C6280 and install them.

If all else fails you could switch to Linux - SANE does a good job with most scanners.

For text recognition, there's some good advice here:
