Impossible to uninstall Toshiba Flash Cards Support Utility

Question: Impossible to uninstall Toshiba Flash Cards Support Utility

I have already followed instructions that I have found on the forum. Uninstalled TVAP. The FCSU is a separate program and does not want to uninstall through the Control Panel Uninstall procedure. I have downloaded a new FCSU file and it does not want to install and I get a message that the program already exisist and that there is an incompatibility problem.

The reason I want to perform this task is that my function keys Fn do not work.
Can you help, please?

Preferred Solution: Impossible to uninstall Toshiba Flash Cards Support Utility

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Impossible to uninstall Toshiba Flash Cards Support Utility

Can you please tell us which notebook model do you have, which OS you want to use and so on?
When you write about TVAP I presume you use Win7.

Do you want to install clean Win7 version?

Wondering if anyone can help me.

I recently just rebooted my Satellite A200-195.

I found that my flash cards for my ?FN? hotkey function buttons have disappeared and do not pop up on top of the screen anymore.
However I am able to press the other function buttons on the keypad F1 - F8, part from the one that enables the mouse?F9?.

I have already uninstalled and installed the Value Added Package, Flash support utility and even tried to update the Bios but it seems my Bio is already the newest version.
After all this I seem to be able to enable my mouse pad ?F9? but my other function buttons are not working anymore and the flash cards still are not appearing like they use to.
Is there anything I can do to get my flash card to pop up back on screen without having to set my laptop back to factory default?

When I start my computer with a boot or reboot, the FN keys don't work. I must start the program titled 'Restart flash cards' in the Toshiba utilities so that the keys work again.
How can I put this program in the start-up list of Windows ?

Answer:How to enable "Flash Cards" utility to starts with Windows?

Click on start button and put inside msconfig to open ?System configuration? option.
Go to ?Startup? tab and there you should find ?Toshiba Flash Cards as start up item. Be sure in front of it there is checkmark. If not put it and confirm with apply button.

Restart your notebook and check it again.

Hi, essejyar, and welcome to the forums.

Can you give us a picture of the *exact* error message, or else write down what it is saying exactly?

As far as multiple user environment, sorry, XP and Vista are both built on the NT kernel (and advances made to said kernel) which means they support multiple users by default. There are a couple of things you can do to make it less intrusive, like automating your login and such, and you can make it easier to use, like disabling UAC, but to protect you from your own self, I'd not recommend these at all.

I am a 20+ year veteran of using computers and I leave UAC on - because then I don't have to run Ad-aware and Spybot and Malwarebytes and Spywareguard and lock down my hosts file and all those other fun things you needed on XP to keep it relatively safe from intrusion and malware....

Hi there.
Like to first off apologise if this is the wrong place to post this topic, but put it down to been new here and the fact that at this point I'm tearing my hair out!!!...
Just recently bought a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4427, which runs Vista Premium, and in the main I'm pretty pleased with it.
No major least none that don't resolve themselves eventually.
This was however not until I noticed that my Toshiba Flash Card, which host the hot keys and some computer functions and which should drop down only when you point your cursor at the top of the screen, developed a mind all of its own and from time to time decided to make an unsolicited apperance and drop down without been prompted!
As it usually happens when I have just finished clicking on something or touched my mouse, I thought it might have something to do with the external optical mouse I was using so off I went to buy another one but of course the darn thing still does the same thing with the new mouse.
I have found a way to disable the flash cards, but I would rather be able to make use of them rather than turning the fuction off completely because of the annoying 'drop down'.
Someone mentioned to me that it may be a conflict between a program I've installed since getting the computer and the flash card program, but as itunes is the only major add-on I have installed, I wonder!?!...
Could this be another classic case of vista gone bad, or is there something else?

Sometimes, unexpectedly and probaby due to some mistake on my part, a message appears saying Toshiba flash cards not responding. What is this?

Answer:Toshiba flash cards don't response

I assume you are an owner of the notebook with the Vista OS. The Toshiba Flash card is preinstalled software which controls visually the FN buttons.

The Toshiba flash cards are placed at the upper display edge. Usually they are not visible but if you will move the courser over this display area the Flash Cards should appear.

I don?t know why the message appears saying the Toshiba flash cards do not response.
Maybe a reinstallation could helps.

I'm working on a friend's Toshiba Satelite L775-S7307. I've reformatted it, put on a shiny new copy of Windows 7 64bit, and installed many of the drivers required to run the hardware.

Now out of the blue, immediately when I turn on the computer, a window titled "TOSHIBA Flash Cards" pops up saying "Win8-TestVersion". You can then click OK or Cancel, both which do nothing more than close the window.

I did a search for the Flash Cards program on the computer but couldn't find anything and I have no idea how to get rid of it.

I've attached a picture of the screen immediately after being booted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Origin of Toshiba Flash Cards?

Might be the card reader driver for the laptop. Chances are, Windows Update automatically installed what it thought was the right driver and ended up trying the Windows 8 one instead.

Go to Device Manager and see if you can see anything about the card reader there?

I have the following problem: after the lat uptade from Microsoft (I believe the Fall Uptade...) everytime I try to shut the laptop down or restart it, I get the notification on the screen that Toshiba Flash Cards is preventing the computer from shutting down. I get two options - to cancel shutdown or force it. I tried turning the FN keys off from star up settings. However it did not help.

Has anybody ever had this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?

I don't want to loose the FN keys, but i don't want to force a shutdown everytime either.

So any ideas?

I've done some searching and it seems that both KeNotify.exe (Toshiba/Utilities) and TCrdMain.exe (Toshiba/Flashcards) are responsible for managing the Fn keys.

Could anyone please explain what each does separately, and what functionality will I loose if I remove them from startup?

Thanks a lot!

Answer:What does the Toshiba Flash Cards / KeNotify Application controls?


From my knowledge the Flash Cards (visual FN button row at the top of the screen) appears pressing if one of the FN + F1-F9 key combination would be pressed.
If you remove both tools, I assume that this visual menu would not appear anymore and you will lose the FN button functionality.

But you can test this just for testing proposes without deleting both entries.
In search type msconfig. In msconfig choose Startup tab and here uncheck both exe files. Save the changes and reboot the unit.

If you want to get back these processes, access the Startup tab again and enable both processes once again.

The Toshiba Flash Cards has been designed for the Windows Vista only

The Toshiba Flash Cards is not a driver; it?s a utility which seems to be not compatible with Windows 7?

Toshiba Flash Cards crashes on Vista when windows is set to use the "windows standard" colour scheme under appearance settings, (for your information, I prefer to use this mode as vista runs quicker, uses less battery power and less system ram in this mode).

However it does not crash immediately, instead it seems to crash whenever I rotate the screen (which happens quite often as I?m using a tablet pc) with the previous version of the software it crashed on boot however that seems to have been rectified with this version although not completely, however when it crashes it will not fully close even if i force task manager to end the process (rather than just the task).

When it starts I've received an error "R6025 - pure virtual function call", and then the microsoft alert that Toshiba Flash Cards software stopped working

My toshiba is Satellite U300 model no. PSU30C-TP908C with windows vista installed

I am getting into a big trouble for some reason, all the keys from "F1~F12" are malfunctioned. When i press them, they do not work as what its suppose to do, instead they all became the functions that you would have when you press them while holding the "Fn" key. So, now if i press F1, I actually get a compter locked instead of casting the help window. Pressing "U,I,O,J,K,L,M" would print out numbers, but if you turn "ON" the numberpad by pressing "F11"(note that i could do it without holding Fn), these keys will return to normal. Space bar does not work no matter what you do. The numbers "1,2" above "Q,W" does not work either.

Another thing i found out is that when i try to open the accessibility tools in the toshiba utility. It says "This system does not support this program".

I have tried to find updates to these utilities, but i could not find the ones suitable for my toshiba.

Normally you can find all drivers on the Toshiba Canada page for your notebook: => Support => Mobile Computing

For the FN keys on Windows you need the Value Added Package. You can find it on the Toshiba website. Remove the old version and restart the notebook. Then use CCleaner to clean the registry and then install the version.

But be honest if you can?t go in the BIOS because with F2 I think it?s a keyboard malfunction and this has nothing to do with the Toshiba tools.
In your case I would test an external keyboard? So you can determine if it?s an internal keyboard problem or not.

Good luck!

My Toshiba media controller plug in is not launching my applications on internet games and downloads,
and I get a message saying it is because it does not support the lastest version of Adobe flash player 11.

I got round it for a while by backdating system restore..but Adobe and windows have caught up.
My computer is only 12 months old surely it can keep up?

What can I do please.

Answer:Toshiba Media Controller does not support Flash Player 11?


As far as I know you download the latest Toshiba Media Controller here:

The plug-in should be compatible with Internet Explorer.

Would also recommend checking this Toshiba US forum thread about this error message:

I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit.
I was having problems installing a program (Berlitz German Premier) where the install would just disappear halfway thru the process. A program would not appear under my programs list but when I went to Uninstall an icon for uninstall of the Berlitz software appears for each time I tried to install it. However I get the following error messages (see attached document with screen captures) when I tried to delete it the traditional way.
When I use Windows Install Clean Up utility, the program is nowhere to be found on the list; thus I can't use that program.
Any suggestions for how to get this program removed?

Answer:Program wont uninstall it with Uninstall or Install Cleanup Utility

Is this a windows XP program or one for vista. It looks like a compatibility problem. Check with vendor to see if they have a version for vista. Some older programs will not work with vista and never will. There is an option to run in capatibility mode with vista but does not always work.

Ive recently tried to uninstall a PC game called GRAW 2.

The game (for some reason) completly stopped working one day and refused to load. It would let me double click, show me the sand timer (the loading pixel) and then would do nothing.
I went to uninstall and the 'setup.exe' ... ' has found an error, sorry for the inconvience ' - force quit uninstall jargon.

Baically, i cant uninstall from the games uninstall, from add/remove or from CCleaner. All setup.exe crashes.

Recently i downloaded 'Perfect Uninstaller' and whenever its on step 2 out of 3 (step 1 it tries game uninstall. Step 2 it deletes all software assosicated with it.), it crashes on blue screen 0x00000050.

For some of you who remember, i had major blue screen problems before, and i will re-post them in another topic.. They came back

Any ideas on how to remove it ?

Thanks in advance,

Kane Leeming.

What do you guys suggest me?

Answer:impossible uninstall

Have you tried going into C:\program files\Snagit? You can delete the program directly from the program files directory or wherever it may have installed (program files is the standard). If its currently running, kill it from the cntrl-alt-del menu and delete the entire folder from programs. If you get access denied and either cant kill the process or dont know what it is, start in safe mode and delete it from the directory.

Since some days I have a problem with my antivirus F-Secure.
When I rightclick with the mouse on an object on my pc it takes ca 20 sec to open the menu and when i choose the option "scan...for virus" nothing happens. I tried to make a virus-scan but also there when i click on "scan" nothing happens. I thought then that maybe i need to uninstall f-secure and reinstall it (or use AVG instead that i like better) but i dont even manage to uninstall it!!
When i go to the control panel to uninstall it it says "uninstall failed!".
I tried to do it in Safe Mode (F8) but i got the same results there!

What should i do?
I really would like to disintall it! And should i download AVG AntiVirus anyway from the net? Because im afraid i get viruses now when f-secure doesnt really work. Or is it bad to have 2 anti-virus softwares installed together?

I hope you can help me with that problem!

Answer:Impossible To Uninstall F-secure!

Hi There,

I would try to disable all instances of it from autostarting when you boot your PC. Then restart, and try and remove it. It more than likely would not let you uninstall it because some aspect of it was running.

Press - Windows Key+R - to bring up the "Run" applet, type in "services.msc" (without quotes) to bring up the Services applet. Locate all the listings for F-Secure, Right-Click each one, and choose Properties.

In the drop down menu, change the Startup type: to "Disabled".

You may also want to check this to:

Press - Windows Key+R - for the Run applet, type "msconfig" (without quotes) Under the "Services" and "Startup" tabs, make sure all listings for F-Secure are unticked.

Now you should be able to restart your PC, and Uninstall it.

You can download AVG before the above process, just don't run the installation until you uninstall F-Secure.

Hope This Helps,

I've checked the 'Manage addons' and it appears to be loaded under Shockwave Flash object and also run it without addons.I've performed a full uninstall of flash player and used the standalone installer instead which hasn't worked and updated my version of java.I've noticed that Activex controls are not prompting so no yellow bar is showing up and gone through the security levels carefully. When right clicking and 'save target as' it always gives a error message.With Firefox everything functions like it should so the fault lies with IE8.I did revert back to IE6, flash and activex controls work fine.Not sure what else I should do or try unless I reset Internet explorer settings and see if that makes any difference.

Many months ago I installed the Simple Software-Restriction Policy on my computer to improve my security, and for a while it worked OK except that I had to turn it off whenever I wanted to update my antivirus software. That has been annoying and a bit worrying but I put up with it.

This is the program (it was recommended originally by somebody on this forum):

Yesterday AVG found a trojan had infected part of the program. After removal of that, I decided to uninstall the software policy, but it is IMPOSSIBLE.
The system tray icon that used to let me temporarily turn off the program (to install and uninstall things) is gone. Gone from the system tray, apparently gone from my machine. It is now impossible to install or uninstall any program, or to update my antivirus, at all, EVER. I cannot get rid of this horrible "security" abomination. The settings .ini file does not have any option for regaining the sytem tray icon. I tried moving the uninstaller into my Program Files, but it still won't uninstall. Windows Add or Remove Programs can't run the uninstaller.

It's as though the program PERMANENTLY destroyed my computer's ability to install anything, and then deleted itself (or AVG deleted it) so it can NEVER be fixed. My computer is completely...

I uninstalled Adobe Flash with their uninstall tool because I read somewhere you needed to update it because of major security flaw. I went over to the Adobe website to try and find an update, as well as a tutorial on how to update, as I had no idea what version I had. Their website is a mess unless you want to purchase something, and then you can find whatever your want. Since I had no idea what version of player, I just DL their uninstall tool, then DLed their new flash. I used their uninstall tool, and then reinstalled the new Adobe Flash Player. The only PU that came up was that it couldn't install in Opera. I went looking to try and configure it, then I read in the post below, you had to go to the link, for shockwave, and figured it would lead me to flash and all that crap.

I currently use windows vista's import utility to import pics off my compact flash card to my pc, but there are two things I would like it to be able to do which it doesn't, as far as I can see.

1. I use more than one media card, and I want the contents of each card to go to different parent folders. I want a program to look at the serial number of the card (or any data that's unique to the card) and remember where I have previously stated I want those pics to be saved to. So that when I put in another card, it will copy the pics to my pre-defined location, and not to the same folder as the previous card.

2. Upon import, I want the program to group the pics in folders based on the date the picture was taken, not the date of the importing. Also, during this importing process, when it moves to the next folder (i.e. whenanother day's photos are beginning import) that I can add a descripton, that will be appended to the folder name after the "date taken".

Does such a program exist?


Answer:Looking for a cleverer utility to import pictures from media cards

A program like Picasa will let you name your folders and location to put them with the pics inside and, it keeps changing with updates, but I think you can still specify just the pics you want to be imported so you could repeat that process for each "days" photos from the card.

As far as identifying each media card individually or the "days" photos being deterministic as to location and number to import of and by themselves...I haven't seen anything even close to being that sophisticated. It might exist somewhere but its probably not free.

Hi All,

I'm replacing the Wireless Network card on my laptop to a different brand.

The existing is a D-Link Airplus G.

Via Control panel I can select to uninstall the 'D-Link Airplus G + Wireless Adapter Utility', this runs and asks me if I want to also delete the device - I say YES.

But, when I re-boot, the utility has been added again to my 'All Program' list, but clicking on it comes up with an 'unable to locate DWLGTI.exe' , which I can find in my Program Files \D-Link... directory.

I can manually delete the link from All Programs, but it keeps coming back!

I've tried the uninstall several times, including a re-install, and uninstall, but I can't seem to remove it from the All Programs - it keeps re-appearing.

I tried deleting the D-Link directry and sub directory - but was unable 'cos it said they were in-use? The actual D-Link directory only has the Utility sub directory within it which only contains 2 Dll's, 2 Icons, and the DWLGTI.exe as above.

I'd really like to completely remove everything to do with the D-Link card before I install my new one (3Com).

What advice please?

I have tried Revo Uninstaller (free), but this did not see the program.
I have run Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials, AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool, and none of them identify this program as a PUP. I certainly don't want it, so for me it is a Definately Unwanted Program.
Does anyone know anything about this program? And can someone please tell me what I need to do to get rid of it?
I run Windows 7 64 Home

I have a pre-loaded shopping application called Wizlink in my computer. I would like to uninstall it but it doesn't show up in the Uninstall utility in Control Panel. Has anyone heard of Wizlink? I would like to know whether simply deleting it without knowing what the associated files are and if they are going to cause any problems.

I have an HP and this program was pre-installed and linked to a couple of shopping shortcut icons also preloaded on my desktop (eBay etc).

Why can't the Uninstall utility find this pesky program, as I would much rather use an uninstaller than simply delete the program?

Any advice?

I wold like to run Toshiba HWSetup utility on my Equium M50-244 but it do not recognizes anything - neither bios version or nothing else.

How I might proceed to put it working?

Thanks in advance!


Answer:Toshiba HWSetup utility on my Equium M50-244


I?m wondering what system you are using?
The Toshiba EU driver page provides Equium M50 tools fro Win XP only?
The Hardware Setup v1.35.0.4C for Win XP is available on the page and I assume you are talking about this software? Right?

Where can I download toshiba cd-dvd burnind utility?

Answer:Where can I download Toshiba Cd-DVD burnind Utility

I?m not quite sure what Toshiba Utility do you mean but usually all drivers, tools and Utilities could be downloaded from the Toshiba European driver page.

But if this software belongs to the ?additional software? which was preinstalled on the notebook then you will be not able to download it because it?s only a part of the Toshiba image and could be installed only using the Toshiba Recovery CD or DVD.

Cheers mate

Answer:I am looking for a Fan control utility for Toshiba laptops


Toshiba does not provide special too for the fan controlling.
Only the Toshiba Power saver is available on the driver page.
This utility controls the settings for CPU processing speed, cooling method, screen brightness, etc?

Maybe it?s a option for you

Hi, I've recently installed windows 7 (clean) on my toshiba a350-12d. Then I've installed a lot of toshiba stuff, to make fn buttons work, such as the value added package and something like that. The problem, now, is that I really can't install the toshiba hw setup utility, so I can't access to the "usb sleep and charge" menu and other stuff.

I've tried to download [this one| gory=2&selFamily=2&selSeries=153&selProduct=820&se lShortMod=791&language=24&selOS=29&selType=all&yea rupload=&monthupload=&dayupload=&useDate=null&mode =allMachines&search=&action=search&macId=&country= 19&selectedLanguage=24&type=all&page=2&part_number =null&product_id=null&ID=69696&OSID=29&driverLangu age=42] but, after the extraction of the files, the installation doesn't start.

I've looked at the files on the toshiba dvd upgrade, and there there's a *toshiba hw setup utility folder*, with four different sub-folder with four different versions of the software. The only one I was able to install was v. , but when I start the utility and made some changes, nothing happens.

Hello, can someone explain to me how to re-install Toshiba Utilities (eg. Eco Utility) cleared when moving to Windows 10, insofar as the Toshiba Service Station said that we should erase from first the older versions to be new? I do not mean the drivers, since in fact I no longer Utilities in question and I do not see where you can download (Satellite S50 B)
Big thank you in advance!

Answer:how to re-install Toshiba Utilities (eg. Eco Utility)

I have exactly the same issue with Toshiba Video Player. I downloaded the drivers and tried to install it again, but I receive en error saying that I don`t have the Video Player in my PC. Of course I don`t have it, I just uninstalled it following Service Station instructions.

I am not entirely sure if this is the right place to post my question, but I will try anyway. I have had a problem with my Toshiba Hotkey Utility. I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S355 and a few months ago I started getting a error popup on each startup that says that the utility is not functioning properly. As a result, I cannot use any of my function key quick keys except for the one that switches between my laptop monitor and any attached monitor. I have tried updating the utility and my graphics card, but if anyone could give me a better list of steps to get this utility to start working again, I would appreciate it.

Hi everyone,
i recently bought this netbook from toshiba and after installing windows for the first time and restarting the machine it says that the password is incorrect hence i cannot enter the system... It may be because of a particular keyboard setup? It seems very unlikely to me that i made the same mistake two times when i inserted the password.

Anyway since i have nothing on my hard drive I would like to reinstall windows, problem is I can not use the recovery utility. I shut the computer down, then i press "0" and i turn it on, but the menu for the HDD recovery does not appear.

Is this a popular problem? Is it covered by the warranty? If you could guys help me finding a solution I would be very grateful.

Answer:Toshiba NB200 and HDD recovery utility

If you have European notebook model use F8 after star-up to enter ?Advanced boot options?.
First option there should be ?Repair my computer?. Choose this option and follow the menu on the screen -

I just hope you will be able to enter system recovery options.

When I trying to start Power Saver from the control panel, it writes something like:
"Power Saver is nor running. Please first set Power Saver as a default power control scheme in power management".
But power saver is already set as my power control scheme.

I tryed to reinstall Power Saver (downloaded from Toshiba site), but it writes "fatal error while uninstalling previous version".
The manual start of the uninstallation give me the same error.

I found that I can delete deinstallation protocol of Power Saver.
After doing so the new version was installed without problems, but still not working. The same error:
"Power Saver is nor running. Please first set Power Saver as a default power control scheme in power management".

Answer:Power Saver utility not working/can not uninstall


Maybe has you a possible for your Problem.
Do you go to in the System Control of Software make a reinstall from the Power Safer.

Check the Registry under HKey_Local_Machine/Software/Toshiba/Power Saver.

The "Uninstall/change a program" utility in the control panel is not listing all my programs (it does list about 90% of them though). What else can I use?


Answer:Uninstall utility doesn't work fully - what else can I use?

If the program creates a Start Menu folder, often there's an Uninstall shortcut there. Not all programs put an uninstall setting in the Registry to show up in the Program Features uninstall list.

Also I've used this freeware and had no problems with it:

I recently downloaded a trial version of Network Magic by Cisco to my laptop. When i attempt to install it it goes through 8 steps and on the 8th step once it gets to 100% complete it continues to increase well over 1600000% and then fails with the following error "unexpected error has occured (0x643). Setup can not continue". The solution is to download an uninstall utility by Microsoft - ../kb/290301 which when selected sends me to an executable web page for Msicuu2.exe. When i select this link the page that appears is either blank or shows web page error. The Tech support at Net Magic is not able to solve this issue, they can get to the executable just fine. I have tried to access the web site from 3 other computers with the same blank screen or web page error.

Here is the link (that I can not access):

Please help. Thanks.

Answer:Solved: Accessing MS Uninstall Utility (Msicuu2.exe) on Web

That's not a web page per-say, its a direct download link and should pop up a download dialog box when clicked.

Strange I can download it.

I attached the file to this message, can you download it from here?
