Hi,

 

Is Samsung software installed on your computer?

Do you receive any error?

 

I suggest you to perform the below methods.

 

Method 1: I suggest you to put the computer in clean boot state and check.

To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

Refer the link below for more details:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows 7:

Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps in the above article to reset the computer to start as usual.

 

Method 2: If you have any Samsung program installed I suggest you to reinstall the drivers for Easy Software Manager

Strength lies not in defense but in attack.

Good luck!!!

I ran into this problem as well on my new Samsung Series 7 running Windows 8.  It happens when I log in as a Standard User - it looks like the program needs to run as administrator.  The fix is to set the program to always run as administrator.

Changing the task for SWMAgent.exe does get rid of the security promts but I'm not sure the software runs properly when running it as admin and logging in as a standard user.
