Antivirus upgrade and network scanner issue at Kenilworth in Warwickshire

Good morning we are with a customer on Jordan Close at Kenilworth in Warwickshire, we are here to look at a scanner issue on a HP Photosmart C7210 multi function printer, oddly the issue here is that the printer works fine but the scanner thinks its disconnected, the problem it seems is that the AVG internet security is blocking the HP solutions centre from keeping the scanner alive, this was confirmed by first trying to disable the AVG firewall which failed and still gave a scanner disconnected error, then as AVG needed updating from version 9 to version 2012 we removed the internet security and tested which worked on the scanner.

Up on loading the new AVG 2012 it then showed as disconnected again even with the firewall disabled, we have logged a support ticket with AVG and are awaiting their response.
