Lupdate Mfc Application – Has Stopped Responding

A computer running Windows Vista had the error message “Lupdate Mfc Application Has Stopped Working” appear on every startup. Google results suggested the computer was infected by spyware , but after a scan with malware bytes and Microsoft Security Essentials , there was no sign of any infection. Further searches showed that Printer Programs could be the issue. I used MSconfig Startup Options to remove the Samsung Printer Control panel and restarted the computer. This fixed the issue. Further diagnostics prove that is could be a program called “openwares liveupdate” If removing the printer software from startup did not fix the issue

openwares liveupdate

    Hey Paris – you a true genius. msconfig – startup is the solution. Funnily enough mine was with a Samsung printer too.

    IMHO better solution: find lupdate.exe with explorer (c:\program files\Samsung[…]), right click, compatibility options, options for all users, run as administrator.

    C:\Program Files\SamsungPrinterLiveUpdate\LUpdate.exe

    Right click, Properties, Compatibility, Show settings for all users, Privilege Level (at the bottom), tick Run this program as an administrator, tick the other Privilege Level box above the ‘Show settings for all users’ button as well.
