How to fix a .exe file that Windows can't find

Dealing with 'Windows cannot find tmonitor.exe'

QUESTION I downloaded and later uninstalled the free Hamster video converter. When I next started up the PC, I got this error message: 'Windows cannot find tmonitor.exe'. Raymond Bisset

HELPROOM ANSWER Tmonitor is part of the Sony Ericsson PC Companion application. If it’s been damaged during the removal of Hamster, you should uninstall it and then reinstall the latest version from Sony Ericsson.

You can also use Msconfig. Type msconfig into the Start menu Search box and press Enter. Select the Startup tab and find and deselect Tmonitor.exe in the list. Click Apply and reboot.
