The file is associated from software vended by Accentive arcadedownloadmanger that must have been installed at some point. Go to control panel and see if there is an entry for this program that you can uninstall. Next goto Start, click in or on Run Command and type msconfig, look under the startup entries and services for an entry associated with this program.

There is a malware program that does use the same file name to disguise itself. However, since it is missing you want to disable any processes that remain that call for the missing file that may be a part of the virus pattern. To do this you will have to do a comprehensive virus scan and I recommend you use an online scanner as it has a "Secure" database..

Please refer to this help page here at FixYa for information and instructions on using an appropriate online virus scanner.

Good hunting.

1) select Start->Run
2) click Browse button
3) find unwise.exe in Yahoo! install folder (usually C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\unwise.exe), click OK in 'Browse' window
4) after that you should see in Run window the following:

"C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\unwise.exe"

5) edit this line, so it looks like:

"C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\unwise.exe" install.log

(after "the path" put the space and type install.log)

6) click OK in Run window

That should uninstall yahoo messenger.

Missing apcmain exe.


If you have the install disk, try and boot from the disk and reinstall. To change boot order, press the key to enter bios. (different on different pc's) Common ones are f8, and delete. If you have valuable data on the Computer you dont want to lose, then use a recovery disk. (BartPe is a good one. Just google it.)

En d?marrant mon ordinateur, j'ai toujours le m?me message d'erreur : c:\program Files\ascentive\performance center\APCMain.exe abnormal program termination comment faire pour m'en d?barasser


Salut Francoise,
'Ascentive' est un programme pour spyware, oui? Je recommande que vous désinstalliez 'Ascentive', et, téléchargez alors et installer un meilleur programme 'Spybot - Search and Destroy' appelé. C'est plus fiable et très simple pour utiliser. Je n'ai jamais eu n'importe quels problèmes avec spyware, puisque j'ai installé Spybot.

J'espère que ceci est serviable à vous. Bonne Chance!

What you need to change is your screen resolution to either 800 x 600 or to 1024 x 768 (in your desktop settings)
What is happening is that your Lexmark all-in-one center doesn't think your monitor can handle the program (or something to that effect).
You will NOT have to restart your computer either.
Just restart your Lexmark All-In-One program and you can start scanning.
