A quick search of google told me that SSMMgr.exe is a program used by Samsung for monitoring the health status of your printer. It shouldn't be hanging your system though!

The first step would be uninstall and reinstall of the printer software and drivers, checking the samsung support site for the latest driver version if there is one and reinstall of the printers supporting software should fix it. Failing that you should be able to re-install the printer drivers without this SSMMgr.exe software monitoring program - more than likely just a simple bug in the software that came too light after a recent Microsoft Update or some other software Install or possibly an irregular printer event has disrupted its ability to monitor itself properly. Most printers have a flashing light or similar indicator when they're low on ink or out of paper or other, anyway the program SSMMgr.exe is the cause not RAM install, though it is possible that vital info for the program was stored on your previous RAM chip that could have been lost during your recent RAM removal and install, or was it install extra RAM only. No reseat or removal of any previous RAM chips occurred, did it?

I have a program(taskhost.exe) which I can't close, and is preventing me from logging off, or shut down my PC

Taskhost.exe is part of windows. killing shouldn't affect anything critical. It's function is to run script that need to run at certaint times. low priority stuff. Recomend you run antivirus and anti malware software. also run windows update. those 3 things tend to find the majority of issues. then open your control panel and look through the add programs section and see if anything has been installed that you don't want. Many time programs install other programs that will cause your computer to have issues.

How to avoid losing your work in case a program stops responding

Sometimes, while doing some specific work on your PC or browsing the internet, the program you're using suddenly stops responding without any apparent reason. If you hadn't been saving your work regularly, you'll most likely lose it when Windows prompts you to close the program.

There's however a solution that could help you avoid such frustration. Here are the steps to follow in case a program stops responding :

1. Once you encounter such a problem, don't close the program you're using.

2. Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

3. In the "Processes" tab, find "explorer.exe", choose it and click "End Process" on the bottom right.

4. Click "Yes" (Everything you see in the background will disappear but don't panic, it will come back).

5. Click "File" on the top left.

4. Choose "New Task (Run...)"

5. Write "explorer.exe" in the box.

And everything comes back! You can now resume your work...

    Your system is infected by Sasser worm.The Sasser worm infects machines via network connections. It can attack entire networks of computers or one single computer connected to the Internet. The worm exploits a known windows vulnerability that is easily patched, however few systems seem to have this patch installed. It attacks Windows 2000 and Windows XP machines along with Windows NT and Windows Server 2003.

    The patch from Microsoft known as the MS04-011 Security Update fixes the following vulnerabilities:
    LSASS Vulnerability 
    LDAP Vulnerability 
    PCT Vulnerability 
    Winlogon Vulnerability 
    Metafile Vulnerability 
    Help and Support Center Vulnerability 
    Utility Manager Vulnerability 
    Windows Management Vulnerability 
    Local Descriptor Table Vulnerability 
    H.323 Vulnerability 
    Virtual DOS Machine Vulnerability 
    Negotiate SSP Vulnerability 
    SSL Vulnerability 
    ASN.1 “Double-Free” Vulnerability 

    Download the Windows patches for this vulnerability.Here is the link below:

    How Can I Remove the Sasser worm?

    Follow these steps in removing the Sasser worm.

    1) Disconnect your computer from the local area network or Internet

    2) Terminate the running program
    Open the Windows Task Manager by either pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL, selecting the Processes tab or selecting Task Manager and then the process tab on WinNT/2000/XP machines.
    Locate one of the following programs (depending on variation), click on it and End Task or End Process

    any process running with the "_up.exe" suffix
    Close Task Manager

    3) Activate the Windows XP Firewall (if running Windows XP) or another firewall to prevent the worm from shutting your system down while downloading the patches. To activate the Windows XP firewall, follow these steps.
    Click on Start, Control Panel
    Double-click on Networking and Internet Connections, then click on Network Connnections
    Right-click on the connection you use to access the Internet and choose Properties
    Click on the Advanced Tab and check the box
    "Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet"
    Click OK and close out of the Network and Control Panel

    4) Remove the Registry entries
    Click on Start, Run, Regedit
    In the left panel go to 

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run
    In the right panel, right-click and delete the following entry

    "skynetave.exe"= "%Windows%\skynetave.exe"
    Close the Registry Editor

    5) Delete the infected files (for Windows ME and XP remember to turn off System Restore before searching for and deleting these files to remove infected backed up files as well)
    Click Start, point to Find or Search, and then click Files or Folders.
    Make sure that "Look in" is set to (C:\WINDOWS).
    In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, type, or copy and paste, the file names:

    Click Find Now or Search Now.
    Delete the displayed files.
    Empty the Recycle bin

    6) Reboot the computer and update your antivirus software, and run a thorough virus scan using your favorite antivirus program.

    For Automatic Removal of Sasser, download the Symantec removal tool, you'll still need to download the patches above and install them, however this removal tool will stop the Sasser worm from running, remove the items in the registry, and delete the infected files.

    I am trying to uninstall webroot spysweeper with antivirus but cant find it to remove it, what should i do?

    Under normal circumstances, like any other Anti-Malware software, Webroot will protect itself. You cannot randomly shut down its service. You cannot use most external uninstallers.

    Always try to uninstall it using Add & Remove Programs first (on XP) or Programs and Features (In Vista and 7), or the uninstall link in All Programs on your start menu.

    If you are not able to find it in any of these places, get the official cleanup utility from Webroot directly at:

    This utility is made to cleanly shut down and clean up Webroot SpySweeper, Antivirus, and Internet Security Essentials and will even remove itself when it's done.

    Windows xp explorer won't shut down need to clean your "Windows"for unnecessary files.Search on Google for "free windows sweeper"...It a software very useful and free to use. Install the software check options in left panel and push "CLEAN". Second: Search on Google for a software for fix hidden errors(ex: Registry repair or Advanced System Optimizer) both software are 15 or 30 days free to use...And finaly get a antivirus. Nod32 run silent and not "eat" resources of comp....And don't forget START PROGRAMS ACCESORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS-DISK DEFRAG or (my recommendation is to use Advanced System Care.They have a free version very good....After all those things you will have a new computer...more faster....more optimize....Goood Luck!

    You need to completely delete and reinstall your drivers and Smart Panel software. Delete the printer from the [Printers & Faxes] menu in [Control Panel]. After that, go again into [Control Panel], then into [Add Remove Programs] and search (in alphabetical order) for the Samsung Status Monitor. Thenclick on [Remove].

    After you are finished, reinstall from the original CD keeping in mind not to connect the unit untill the installation procedure tells you to do so.

    Be blessed.
