Plus its not normal than u cannot uninstall it and this suggests that the Kies file is damaged in some way. My advice is to reinstall Windows from scratch and start again. Its annoying to have to reinstall I agree but sometimes its the only solution.
Uninstallation also failed.the slider gets stuck at 90%.does anyone knows of any software that can force uninstallation from add or remove prog?will my system crash if i delete the folder and restart the system?i'm never going to repeat the mistake of installing kies on my system again
The phone being excellent in all other aspects, I needed a few things different from my Nokia 5800.I was kind-of disappointed. I found some odd irritations on the wave :
1) Keyboard is NOT multitouch. What's the use of such an awesome capacitative touchscreen if u can't type fast enough (moreover, no swype too :-( ). You have to completely lift up a pressed button, only then you can type the next.
2) You can only add widgets onto the home screens, not shortcuts or icons. Again, a wastage of such a nice screen space.
3)Widgets that come preinstalled are so big that you can rarely fit more than one on a screen.
4) What would it have cost Samsung to put in a decent clock widget preinstalled?? All it has is a yahoo clock which is also, below par for my expectations.
5) In any list, you get small letters at the right of the screen to help you navigate. But they are so small that even the slimmest of fingers will cover it completely while searching, thereby making it useless.
anybody agrees? I chose the wave over the galaxy s, but I was more disappointed than I expected.

My steps for getting the phone connected are as follows: connect ur WAVE by USB then on the phone select Kies when the transfer mode pops up. Kies automatically starts on my pc (no need to hit the pc icon) and take about 5 seconds to load and recognise the phone. May be stating the obvious but hope it helps.

Samsung wave....480x800 = HIGH!

My bro got iphone and i bought the wave. Not only does it run smoother and with less jaggies on the screen it looks way better thx to the super oled screen.

What processo... moreI tried driver recovery thingy in the options on top left corner.i completed successfully.but no noticeable change in either the loading time.it gets stuck in an infinite loop showing that connecting slider.now when i finally wanna remove kies,it's again getting stuck at the very instance of initialization.i use 2.4ghz intel p4 with xp sp3,ram being 768mb.i started off with this at 8.30 in the evening and i'm still sitting here frustrated,cursing myself.it's been close to 2hrs.if it doesn't get uninstalled on its own,i'll delete the stuff and restore my registry.i gotta use my wave without kies.i see no other option.people mostly using win7 r not facing any issues that includes my friend too who bought the phone with me on the same day.i can't upgrade my os just for this and neither my comp hardware's gonna support it
