Hey there, it is most likely that this error is associated with the Operating System’s related issue. It might also sometimes, can be a pointer to the driver problems. There might be a scenario where the application, which is processing some data, is attempted to close and therefore generates this error.

Try avoiding exiting applications while they are busy. Also, you must perform a full scan by your antivirus to your system for any threats/malware or any other sort of infections on your file system. Hope it helps!

In the Microsoft Windows operating system, you cannot just stop any service running on the system because it might cause your system to be unstable especially if the service is running or a particular software is using that service. If that “ScanEngine” service belongs to your scanner, it shouldn’t be stopped if the scanner is operating.

It will cause the scanner software to crash because the service it is using was stopped. If you know what hardware or software is using that service and you need to stop the service, make sure the device or the application is not running before you stop the service. If you need to do some troubleshooting, exit the application and turn off the device before stopping the service.

If you stopped the service from the command prompt and it triggered an error, try using the GUI. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “services.msc” and then hit Enter. In “Services” window, scroll down and locate the service you need to stop.

Once you locate the service, right-click it and select “Stop”.
