When an email contains an attachment that ScannerVision can't open but should be able to, that email is flagged(starred) and marked as Unread.
When an email contains an attachment that ScannerVision can open but it fails during processing, that email is flagged(starred) and marked as Read.
You are probably unflagging it with Outlook via Exchange Server Protocol. Unflag it using an email client that is set up to use IMAP protocol. The flagging via IMAP and Exchange Server Protocol are not the same. Flagging via IMAP causes a flag to appear on the mail in the mailbox. Unflagging via Exchange Server Protocol does not cause the flag to disappear on IMAP clients. Microsoft / (IMAP/Exchange Server Protocol flag translation) issue.
In preferences.dat, set MaxDocProcessors greater than zero. Zero means no maximum limit as does a missing entry.

In preferences.dat, set CaptureSourceTimeSlice to your desired value in seconds. A missing entry means 180 seconds. Zero means (v8.6 onward) no template context switching.
[MultiProcessing]
CaptureSourceTimeSlice=180
In preferences.dat, set ProcessIsResponsiveTimeout to your desired value in seconds. A missing entry means 300 seconds. Negative values and alpha numerics are illegal. Zero means that no responsivity measure will be in effect. All other values smaller than 60 defaults to 60 seconds. Available from v8.6.0 onward.

A Windows Feature Update has deleted the certificate used by ScannerVision to access the database where all Clients, Users and Connections have been stored. Close ScannerVision, navigate to the C:\ProgramData\ScannerVision\Config folder and delete the Settings.db and Settings.key files. This will delete all Clients, Users and Connections which have been setup and these will need to be created again. A backup of the database and certificate can be made using the Backup/Restore Tool within ScannerVision, and this backup can be restored should this happen again. It is recommended to do regular backups of the database.
In preferences.dat, set DetailedLogging to zero. A missing entry means zero in v7.6.0 and one in v7.6.1+. Only works in v7 from v7.6.0
