Apologies up front as I'm sure this has already been covered, but doing a quick search revealed 100s it matches and it's hard to know where to start.
Since I just did a upgrade of Samsung Kies to (File name: Kies_126.96.36.19994_28_8.exe) everytime I start the application I get the error "Kies has stopped working, Close the Program". This happens whether or not I have the phone connected via USB.
At first I had the problem to do with KiesPDLR has stopped working. I followed the advice of an uninstall and clean re-install and I think it worked a couple of times. Now it won't work at all, even after another clean install.
The other symptom I get is that when I boot up my machine it says that Kies Air has stopped working (not that I'm using it).
Any thoughts? I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.
