Windows 7: Free Twain scan w/pdf + email?

Free Twain scan w/pdf + email?

Although the new Win7 machine scans fine to the HP with HP's software for reasons Canon cannot determine the machine will not scan to the Canon with Canon's software. Canon support suggested I download 3rd party software to use with the Canon but I'm not having luck finding a small, free, Twain app that will not only scan to pdf but will 'scan, open a new blank Outlook email and attach the result' as does the Canon and HP scan software.

Anyone use something like this?

The one's I've come across so far, once installed, advise of a 30 or so day time fuse.

You can test your Canon scanner with the web twain online demo here. With it, you can acquire images from your canon scanner and save as pdf via browser. With the testing, you can then determine if it's the scanner driver issue or the app issue.
