Hi

Since the last Windows 7 update, I've had problems copying and pasting files in Windows Explorer. From looking at various forums, there seems to be a conflict with the last Windows update and MyWinlocker made by Egis Technology Inc.

 

MyWinlocker was bundled with my Acer laptop and I've never needed to use it, so I tried to uninstall the program. During uninstallation I was asked to stop 2 processes (egisupdate.exe and mwlDaemon.exe), but in the next stage of the uninstall process I got the message "Error code 1628: Failed to complete installation." I rebooted Windows 7 in Safe Mode (F8) and tried to uninstall MyWinlocker, but I got the same "Error code 1628" again.

 

I've tried to uninstall MyWinlocker using both Advanced Uninstaller Pro 12 and CCleaner, but still get the "Error code 1628".

 

I still have problems with moving files on my Windows 7 system, so can anyone suggest a way to get rid of this program?

 

Thanks for reading

 

Jeremy

Hello jeremygex,

 

You could try deleting or disabling it in AutoRuns, see canned text below;

 

Post an Autoruns log for us, see here  

 

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.

2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".

3: Click on the "Hide Signed Microsoft and Windows Entries” option.

4: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.

5: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop > when you click on File > Save you will then get the option to Save as type, click the drop down tab, change it to Text and then click the Save button.

6: Attach to your next reply.

Thank you very much, Phillpower2. I disabled the MyWinlocker program using the Autoruns program and have not had any issues with copy, cut and paste, so far.

 

I really appreciate your advice and the Autoruns software is great.
