Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?


Answers :

Have you just installed a new security app such as Kaspersky?
\015\012If so you could so allow CEC_main.exe in the firewall which should cure the problem.
The cec-MAIN.EXE is some kind of camera assistant software for Toshiba.
\015\012Kaspersky tech support will help you with instructions for adding the CEC_Main.exe to the trusted applications list. However, when re-booting, the pc still can produce adverse feedback pop-ups, i.e., "The application failed to initialize properly(Oxc0000142). Click OK to terminate the application." and "CEC_Main has stopped working..."

\015\012So, If this happens please visit Toshiba's website and temporarily save the file to My Desktop a copy of their camera assistant application, util_camera_26033.exe.You might also have to re-opened Kaspersky > Settings > Threats & Exclusions > Trusted Zones > Objects > Add+ > and then I manually type in
"C:\\Program Files\\Camera Assistant Software for Toshiba\\CEC_MAIN.exe" (without the quotation marks) to the exclusion rules, to allow CEC_Main.exe to be a trusted application. Then reinstall the camera assistance application software using the repair option on the installation walk-through, then re-booted the pc.
Voila! No more errors :)
Still, if you are not currently using your laptop's webcam and you are concerned about tweaking your anti-virus program, you could probably just uninstall the (Chicony) Camera Assistant Software to avoid seeing the error pop-up
