kiesPDLR has stopped working

I ran Samsung Kies and it indicated that there is an update. I updated it and now get the kiesPDLR error.

Tried a few things suggested via a web search. Didn’t work. So I uninstalled the Kies application. The unloading crashed. LOL! Using Procexe I killed any lingering traces of Kies, then downloaded the latest version, Kies_2.5.0.12094_27_11.exe. I didn’t reboot, just started it up. Did not get the error.

Connected the Samsung Note smart phone with USB cable. Wouldn’t connect. Hmmm. Switched cables, a little closer, at least the driver started to install (I thought Kies installed that?). Still wouldn’t connect. Unpluged and plugged in again a few times. Connected!!!!! Now what was my original purpose? Dam computers. How do non-techy people use these things?

I read some people had no luck with the reinstall of Kies.

A new Kies update was released. Again the update failed. Followed the same process described above. Worked. Now the Kies version is
