Magic Tune Premium, comes as MagicTuneEngine.exe, version supplied by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd (SEC), and is the one that's 2437120 bytes long. It was shipped with my Samsung SyncMaster 932BF 19 inch TFT LCD Monitor. It is found where it should be on my system, in the Program Files directory, MagicTune Premium subdirectory as PID 564 and runs at startup. I have no problems with this software: no crashes, no freezes, no bsod, it seems to be doing what it is supposed to do, but then my system runs on 2 gigs of memory, which is a bonus for any system.

Comes with Samsung Monitor. Crashes a lot

It's shite - causes constant freezes within 2 minutes of booting
Came with my Samsung 2343BW monitor, used to crash every minute or so but new downloaded version never crashes. It's for changing the monitor settings through the taskbar, the buttons on the monitor are worthless. Connects to internet when i start Windows 7 so i blocked it, no reason for the program to do that.

ist offensichtlich ein ein Flopp, Läuft trotz Win7 auf 2 Notbooks nicht. Hinweis: das aktuelle Computersystem ist nicht mit MagicTune kompatibel. Samsung liefert schlechte Software.
It causes XP not to load if you switch to a different monitor.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with MagicTune. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
