The HP driver software, in default mode, used a fair amount of
sharpening, although at least they were honest enough that it showed up
on the sharpness slider as a number, like 10.  However, if you did not
take it down to zero, or use a saved adjusted set of parameters which
lowered that slider to zero, then all your scans from the HP scanner are
sharpened.

What HP were you using, the HP S-10 (SCSI) of the HP S-20 (USB)?
