You may use Adobe Photoshop. If you want a scan to look neater, make sure you use the Smart Blur tool with a radius of 5.0 and a threshold of 8.0 at medium quality. Then for areas that look like they don't belong in the mixture of colors, you use the smudge tool. Take the right color and go over what is called noise. That's how I do it.

1 is of course the proper use of smart. proper! excessive will make the scan ugly instead.
2nd is re-cg the whole thing. kinda smudge the whole scan with the smudge tool. takes quite some time but it does the trick.

and I believe shinta have one tutorial on cleaning scans up on her site.

You could always redraw it using vectors... *hides from all the dirty looks*
Seriously though, vector tracing is pretty time intensive for first-timer users, so unless you're willing to really go for gold, a mixture of blurs and brushing should do the trick just fine. It often depends on the scan itself. If you're going to re-CG, start with the largest scan available, reCG it, and THEN resize it smaller for your wallpaper.

I am learning vectoring and it's probably the best way to get some clean colours.. problem is I also have to learn how to give some depth to the vector since after tracing it the colours are obviously too flat.

I could do that. I've done very similar things before. Nice thing about it is that anime typically doesn't have really broad gradients in it, so... Nyaaahhhhh. You could always go for the abstract, though. I've done that on occasion (a few times just because I couldn't be bothered to clean the scan properly XD).

What exactly do you mean by "cleaning it up"? Is the image damage or are you just trying to get rid of paper stock noise?

Smart Blur: Okay, but causes edge detail to be lost.
Vector Tracing: Great results if you can spend the time to do it right.

I am not much of a fan of anything that has the word "blur" in it. There are better ways to clean up the paper stock noise of an image, but they are usually a bit more time consuming than people are willing to put into it. Also, the method for cleaning an image, in nearly evey way to be cleaned, really depends on the image.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

There's no tutorial that I know for coluring... when I re-cg a scan I either use the brush tool (making layers for each colours/tones) defining the areas to colour with the pen tool. If I want to give some depth with highlights or shadows I basically use the burn and doge tools, with a very low intensity.

CS is 'creative suit' the other name for Photoshop CS is Photoshop 8. well, there are differences, but not much, between 7 and 8.
