Preferred Solution: Samsung Kies Doesnt Work

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sorry, but i'm afraid that Samsung Kies isn't compatible with Windows 8.

I've posted this same topic in the networking forum but I think this subforum might be better. Mods can delete the other one.

Yesterday I read about a new firmware update for my Samsung Galaxy S3, and I decided to install Kies on my laptop so I could get it (for many Galaxy S3 users in the Netherlands that day, Over The Air updates didn't work).

First I tried the browser version of Kies, saw nothing about updates so I downloaded and installed Samsung Kies, but that didn't work either. I watched a help video inside the program which was run with Java (I had to install that too, yet I believed I already had it, but I clicked ok anyway)

I didn't have my USB cable with me to connect my phone to the program and it didn't work via wireless either. So I uninstalled it and tried Kies Mini, that didn't work either so I uninstalled that one too, and then had to reboot.

Wanting to resume my work on a website, I wanted to see how it looked in Chrome, Firefox and IE but noticed NONE of them start up. The process starts and stops in half a second.

Here's a list of things I tried:

1. System Restore up to the point of AFTER installing Samsung Kies (unfortunately I couldn't go back any further)
2. Uninstalled Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Kies, Kies Mini and Java.
3. Reinstalled Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Kies, Kies Mini and Java.
3. Ran Spybot Search and Destroy, found nothing big, no trojans or anything.
4. Deleted as many mentions of the keywords Chrome, Firefox and Kies in... Read more

A:Chrome, Firefox, IE won't start after trying Samsung Kies and Kies Mini. Opera will

Because of forum rules we are not allowed to Analise Hijack this logs. Have you tried Revo Uninstaller? Also look into the add-on and exstentions in Firefox and Chrome to see if Kies still installed. If so disable them. Or try Firefox and Chrome in safe mode.

Windows8 gives the following problem on start up ......well what's new?

after a short while a Windows warning shield advises "Server Busy" with the following useless information, This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose switch to activate the busy program and correct the problem.

Poor fool me did as the warning shield asked only to be confronted by that magnificently designed Windows start menu that I paid $5 AUD to get rid of and of course there was no program running.

A quick look at task manager showed something interesting. Somehow Samsung Kies had started a tray icon program without being requested to and which does not show up in the tray icon customisation area either which is making some kind of system call. If you end the task the problem goes away, at least for the present.

There have been three updates on the computer that may be responsible one by Microsoft for a driver, one by Nvidia graphics and the final one by Sun Microsystems for java. The problem has only presented itself since these updates and as they were all done in the one session it is not possible for a mere mortal such as myself to pinpoint the exact piece of wizardry responsible.

For those responsible I have taken a few screen shots so they can sit there and laugh and say we gotcha! and for their entertainment are attached.

Anyone in Wizard class is invited to advise me how to get rid of this pain with the least work possible.

A:Samsung Kies problem

This may not be the answer you're looking for but here's what I did; In the first place, I found Kies to be one of the most screwed up pieces of bloatware I've tried, so, as soon as Kies installed the device recognition drivers, I uninstalled Kies and manage my stuff myself. That's about it!

My Version of Win 10 is Home.

Tried to install Samsung Kies to update my phone/

But cannot due to being blocked due to "This publisher has been blocked from running software on your machine".

Been to properties of the file to unblock, with no effect.

Some say to run 'Group Policy Editor', but cannot find this and read that with 'Home' edition it is not installed.

Any one know of a fix, to allow 'Kies' to run with my 'Home' version.

You should be able to install it this way :-

This allowed me to install Kies on Windows 10:
Windows key + X key
Command Prompt (Admin)
Shift + right click on program (e.g. Kies) do this in File Explorer
Copy as path
Paste in Command Prompt just right-clicking in the cmd window did the Paste for me
Hit Enter

I use to have Kies on my previous pc but it 'died' on me. As the pc was totally dead I couldn't even search for assistance from TSG or any other like you.
So I took it to 'Curries PC world' expecting to shell out to them to fix it, honestly I was quite willing to pay to get back online. Like so many things we attach our selves to, we don't miss it until it's gone. I was gutted to be told there isn't a damn thing that can be done to retrieve the info, personal stuff like addresses, phone numbers and a whole stack of info. The other thing was, when at one point I downloaded Kies, I couldn't make either of my mobiles to connect. What on earth am I doing wrong
Regarding the above, I would really like to hear from anyone who can furnish me with some advice, like if it is possible to remove a hard disk or what ever. I have a new lap top now so it's only the info, not to use it.

The above leads me onto another problem. I had Samsung Kies installed on my old machine, now though I am trying to install it again, I really do need it for photographic records. The snag is, for the life of me I can't recall who I used before,(that last sentence makes no sense does it), but I'm having problems and had to scan twice, to remove, do they call it 'Malware', something that my internet security found, quarantined and advised me that it wasn't good.

HD controller error. Please run a chkdsk as per below.
A- CHKDSK /R /F:

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
B- Elevated Command Prompt:

Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"
C-CHKDSK LogFile:

Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.

Double click on the Source column header.

Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).

Hi

Recently I purchased a samsung galaxy sII, and I am attempting to connect it to my computer using Samsung Kies, and it is continuously failing to install the MTP driver, and I think this has something to do with the fact that windows update won't offer me any updates whatsoever, or even search for updates. And I think this is the process used for adding drivers?

I haven't posted on a forum for a long time, so if I left anything out feel free to abuse, i mean ask nicely for the information to help me.

I recently found that my Win 7 PC was only running Microsofts own default VGA video drivers.
My video is SiS760 on board so I downloaded the only drivers I could find but they were for XP.
On installing I found that whilst everything else seemed as good or better than before when booting Samsung Kies (Samsung Galaxy support software) that the program gave a mixture of readable, distorted and broken display.
If I reinstalled Kies there was no change and the problem was still there. It only went when I reverted to Windows generic video drivers.
Can anyone tell me if there is a correct Win 7 driver for the on-board SiS760 graphics device anywhere as I have hunted and cannot find one.
I have also found that using the generic driver the (atrocious) Windows media player 12 does not allow me to change the brightness/contrast/speed options which I was also hoping would be cured by the correct driver.
As this PC came to me as a 'dumper' when the previous owner screwed up a Windows 7 install I'm not sure if it ever had anything other than the default windows drivers for video.
I don't need a mega fast video card as this PC simply controls and reads data from workbench test gear so I'm not going shell out dosh to stick another card in but it would be nice to have full use of WWP12 as it's apparently not possible to downgrade to WMP11.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:sis760 video + Windows 7 + Samsung Kies problem

Unfourtanently,

You are not going to find a Windows 7 driver for this graphics chipset.
The last release SiS made for that chipset was for 32-bit XP, which meant the laptop you have originally had 32-bit XP on it, and someone tried a Windows 7 upgrade to it (as you said).

If you want full use of the card, reinstall Windows XP on it. That's the only option i'm afraid.

Since that I had some problems with my BIOS, but they stopped (re-enter date) . About two weeks ago, my battery was empty and my laptop crashed.When restarting it my display didn`t work any more.

WHen i press my push to talk key in Teamspeak people hear there self and even hear the music i am playing through my headset, but they cant hear me. I did almost everything i can found on the internet.

- Used the correct "holes".
- CHeck if its muted somewhere
- DOwnloaded newest drivers
- Check the entire sound page and tried everything!

additional information:

- I got like 6/7 lines in noted at my recording devices and they are all not plugged in.
- When i go to speaker > properties > levels there isnt a microphone there.
- use windows 7 btw.
- it also doesnt work @ windows sound recorder.

If you could help me i would be very gratefull!
ANd if you need anything else, just ask!!

Wessel

i have to type command anyone know why?
 

A:cmd doesnt work on xp

Could possibly be an infection try this and have it checked by a HJT expert here:

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.

Ok so ive been reading a lot and found that there is a large issue with mics not working properly in windows 7.

here is my dilemma
Imma make this quick:

Came home to talk to buddy on skype. when i plugged in my mic and tried to call him, skype said there was a problem with my mic. under RealtekHD audio (onboard controller for Gigabyte p55 Ud2 board) the mic is recognized and i can hear my self talk if i turn on playback. http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/7650/micproblem.jpg
under the windows sound setup i tried to configure the mic but it wouldnt work. i get a popup saying "Make sure your audio hardware is working properly and check your audio configuration in the audio devices and sound themes control panel" http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/8367/micproblem2.jpg

so i decided to reinstall the audio drivers from the gigabyte disk. well after rebooting, i had no sound through the speakers and no sound through the mic still. windows tells me i have no speakers plugged in and i cant even begin to change volume levels anywhere. i re-flashed my bios of the board from f7 to f10 but that didnt change anything

please help, this is starting to piss me off (more so cause it slate and i just wanted to game after work)

Update:
i did a system restore and my speakers work again, but the mic still does not work. i can only hear it if i listend to the mic playback in realtek audio hd manager. if i try to calibrate it, the mic doesnt work

Update 2:
after doing some read... Read more

a while back i plugged in my joystick into my front panel usb (man, this sounds like a bad porno script written by a nerd) and my computer just went dead. what happened was the capicators in my PSU just up and popped basically. anyway, i cant use usb 2.0 anymore. its enabled in my bios, its deffinetly supported, its broke on all ports so im not plugging it in in the wrong spot. is it possible that there was like, a voltage irregularity but it only effected my usb 2.0 controller? everything else works as expected.

my mobo is a gigabyte GA-7N400-L

also, i just looked in the hardware manager and theres a question mark next to my Universal Serial Bus controller. i do have the latest drivers for my motherboard and the chipset and whatnot. would i have to install the USB controller seperately then?
 

A:USB 2.0 Doesnt work

Well, since it happened when you plugged something in the USB port then it is very likely it fried something in the USB controller but nowhere else.

You should find out if it was your joystick that caused the damage or your USB ports were wired to the motherboard wrong.

You could get your motherboard replaced if it is under warranty or just buy a PCI USB controller.

Hi, i have a 2 year old emachines desktop, and its been working fine up until now. Whats wrong with it is that when i turn the computer on, it doesnt display anything on the screen, and the mouse and keyboard dont work either, and only the fan is on. Also the light around the power button turns into a solid orange color. Also the computer smells like burned rubber. Also last night i uninstalled my old nvidia drivers, and installed new ones, but it was working fine last night after i had done that.

Please if someone can help me ASAP it would be greatly appreciated
 

A:PC doesnt work, help!!

I start the PC, and the net is connected - using cable - I open up my FTP program, FileZilla and it doesnt connect.
I disconnect LAN and reconnect and it FTP works. But when I shut it down and start my PC again, I got to repeat the same process.

Any idea how to get this fixed ?

Thanks

A:FTP doesnt work unless

By disconnect LAN, do you mean you unplug the ethernet cable, or do you repair, or disable/reenable the internet connection from windows?

Also, can you browse the internet from your internet browser without going through the process you described?

Hey guys,

What happened was that I installed IE7 and then realised it kept crashing and used up too much resources on my system and made it run slow so I then uninstalled it and it left IE6 which is what I was using before. However, since this uninstall, IE6 (which worked fine until I installed IE7) stopped working even though my internet connection is fine. The reason I never really bothered about fixing it was that I was using FF as my default browser at the time so I never really missed it.

Today, I needed to use IE so I reinstalled IE 7 including all the latest updates for it from the ms website to see if the problem with IE would correct itself but still no joy - it says 'IE cannot display the webpage'.

I then tried also to use the diagnose problem function within IE to work out the problem but no joy. Ive attached a screenshot of what comes up when I run the diagnose connection problem function in IE7. I also tried to use the ietab add-on in Firefox but that doesnt work either.

Just to confirm, my OS is windows XP SP2 and my internet connection is fine and I use Firefox 2 with no probs. Im using McAfee Firewall and internet explorer exe has full access so it cant be my firewall that is the problem.



All assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:IE Doesnt work...help!

Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized) (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.


In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD.
