Can't apply my 3rd party filters anymore in Photoshop CS5 after installing a twain driver

I installed a twain driver (i now realize this was a mistake) in my CS5 for the purpose of scanning within it.  Since doing so, I can no longer apply my topaz filters (or any 3rd party filters for that matter).  The filter interface opens fine, and i can see the filter on my image, however, when I click out of it, nothing is applied to my image.  Help?!?

    What operating system?  I seem to recall advice not to use Twain drivers on a 64 bit system. Have you tried to deinstall the driver?

    Not a Mac user myself, but there are many here who can help out.

    For a very quick fix, try removing the Adobe TWAIN plug-in or at least disabling it by closing Photoshop and  typing a ~ (that's a tilde ~) in front of its name, then relaunch Photoshop.


    That's why Adobe doesn't even include the now-optional TWAIN plug-in as part of the default installation of Photoshop any more.
