Tip & How-To about Samsung SGH-R225m Phone
This happens when the first installation of the software had not been successful .
What usually happens is that wrong system registry cannot be deleted when uninstalling software, or overwritten when reinstalling, therefore uninstalling and reinstalling the software does not fix the problem.
A bad setup happens often because you connect the USB data cable before installing the software, The firewall or security software had not been disabled, when you are asked if to allow a change to system during setup and you deny, when your account does not have administrator privileges, or when Windows has a problem.
What you can do is the following:
Unplug the USB cable.
Uninstall the software.
Do a system restore to a date before installing software for the first time.
Disable antivirus, firewall and security software.
Install again the software. Start software setup with USB cable unplugged.
On Vista, to start the setup, locate the installer file (eg. setup.exe or install.exe) and instead of using double click to run the file, click the right button of mouse and chose "Run as Administrator" from the dropdown menu.
Ensure that you always allow changes when asked by the system.
Connect USB data cable with device on when asked.
If that does not work, then Windows has a problem, in that case you may need to reinstall windows.

To resolve this issue, please follow one of the following methods.
Use the Recovery Console Tool:
To restore a damaged registry hive, use the Recovery Console to restore the backup copy of the hive from the Repair folder. The Repair folder contains a copy of the system's registry hives that were created after the first successful startup of Windows XP.
WARNING : Although data should not be affected by the following procedure, you may need to restore changes you previously made to programs or system settings since the first time you successfully started Windows XP.
To replace the damaged registry hive and restore the backup copy of the hive from the Repair folder: Start your computer to the Recovery Console. You need your original XP CD, boot your PC from the CD and press R when it say 'Press 'R' to use recovery console.
In Recovery Console, change to the c:\Windows folder.
Type cd system32\config , and then press ENTER.
Type dir system , and then press ENTER.
If you cannot run the preceding command successfully (because the file is missing), skip to step 3. If you can run the preceding command successfully, type ren system system.bak , and then press ENTER.
Type copy c:\windows\repair\system , and then press ENTER.
NOTE : If the message that you received referred to the software file, replace "system" with "software" in the preceding command. For example, you would type copy c:\windows\repair\software (instead of copy c:\windows\repair\system ), and then press ENTER.
