Windows 7 message

Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

Windows 7 message

Post by jstvj » Wed Sep 09, 2015 4:43 pm

I am getting the following error message:

Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Clarus\Samsung Drive Manager\Drive Manager.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again.

This happens when I try to open other programs. I have gone into Programs and even clicked the .exe with the same result.

I have a vague feeling it may be something to do with AVG I installed from software section, but disabling AVG has no effect.

Found some solutions on Google but none work

Any solutions please ?

Uninstall AVG.
Test
If same result then:
Update or Uninstall then test Samsung Drive Manager, re-install?

Hello Will

Sorry, did what you said but none of it worked. I like Advanced Uninstaller though, thank you. I also uninstalled Winoptimzer because I also installed that at the same time as AVG. I did all this because the Iobit Advanced Systemcare with Anti Virus program I had been using for ages suddenly said it was out of date and I needed to purchase the new version. I also installed Search Everything to get rid of .MTA files, but I get the same message with that as I do with Samsung Drive Manager. It looks like I may have to clean install,, DBM pointed me towards Windows 7 Premium SP1 a couple of years back, but I do not remember which one it was and I forget how to install it now. Also I don't want to loose all my music, photos and documents. Can I just transfer my Libraries over to my external Hard Drive or is there something else like App Data that has to been transferred as well ? :boohoo

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=242465&p=1500856&h ... E#p1500856

The following would need a lot of updates, but is what we used back then:

and there is:

Windows.10.Enterprise [All Editions]

I always have a C and D partition (DRIVE_C & DRIVE_D). So I can wipe C if needed
On drive D I have all my music, pictures, video, doc's etc., also on external drives.

You might not like 10 either. Read through all the post in Windows 10 also Google, to each his own.

Thanks Will, I was happy with Windows 7 and think I will keep to it by downloading the Winborg version. Thanks again for your advice.

Try a Windows System Restore.
Maybe that will being your back before the problem.

Have you checked to see if 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Clarus\Samsung Drive Manager\Drive Manager.exe' actually exists on your disk first ?

I had a problem where files were installed under 'C:\Program Files\' but should have been under 'C:\Program Files (x86)\'. Can you confirm the existence of the file in the correct directory ?

Thank you Equalizer. Yes I have checked and the program is there and actually clicked on that .exe with the same response. I have just discovered that Skype is also amongst the programs that are receiving the same message.

Having viewed a few reviews on YouTube, I have decided to give Windows 10 a go. The only probem is I don't know how to activate it. I have downloaded Microsoft Toolkit 2.5.3.exe. Do I just click on it after 10 is installed, which seems too simple or is it more involved ? I have added my Drive D to the send to menu, so that I can transfer my Libraries etc before formatting C, is that OK ?

Disable Real-Time in Windows Defender:

Microsoft.Toolkit.2.6B1: Always 'Run as administrator'

There's a read-me button: Read-me button

Add an exclusion to Windows Defender: Exclude 'C:\Windows\AutoKMS' after activation.
