    That file is camera assistant software. It can be found at



    C:\Program Files\Camera Assistant Software for Toshiba\CEC_MAIN.exe



    Sounds like the file is corrupted. go into Explorer and follow the path above and see if you can click on it to start it.

Clicking on it won't help, as you said 'the file is corrupted'. I would just uninstall 'Toshiba Camera Assistant' and redownload it from the internet if you need it. If you've never used it, don't worry about reinstalling it. It isn't nessisary.

This issue could be due to corrupt wireless drivers or corrupt BIOS settings or hardware malfunction of the wireless card. To isolate the issue, perform the steps provided below.

prompted, click OK to confirm removal.
6. Follow onscreen instructions to complete uninstallation process.
7. Restart the notebook. The system will reinstall the generic drivers during startup.
Follow the instructions on the Startup Wizard.
Now download and install the latest drivers for the Wireless network adapter from the web link provided below:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp41501-42000/sp41675.exe

NOTE: Clicking the link may give an error indicating it is invalid.
Copy and paste the entire link in a new browser window.
Installation Instructions:
1. Download the Softpaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 2: Update BIOS

Download and install BIOS update on the notebook from the web link provided below.

Installation Instructions:
1. Download the Softpaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

If the issue persists even after performing the above steps, then I recommend you to remove and reseat the wireless network adapter of the notebook and then check for the issue. To do this, you can refer the service manual provided below:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01035677.pdf

I hope the information provided would be helpful to resolve the issue with your notebook.

I am getting error message for win32 generic host data executor prevention


Here is my resolution to the error
SVCHOST.EXE GENERIC HOST PROCESS OR
DEP ERROR

IT DOES NOT INCLUDE
DISABLING WIA
OR
DISABLING DEP (which is a good security feature)


I have tried it on upto 3-4 computers with success and complete software functionality
*******************************************
Turn the All in One Off
Uninstall the whole of the HP software on the computer
Run a level 4 uninstall
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L1.bat
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L2.bat
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L3.bat
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L4.bat

Restart the computer
*******************************************
Check the computer on the restart
Check if you still get an SVCHOST.EXE GENERIC HOST PROCESS OR
DEP ERROR on restart


Start --> Run
Type in Msconfig
Click OK
Click Launch System Restore
Run System Restore
Create a Restore Point named Hp

Click Start --> Run
Type in Regedit
Click OK
Open Registry Editor
Scroll to the following Registry Key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentV
ersion\Explorer\
RemoteComputer\NameSpace\2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D

Right click on this Key Click Export
On the Export Registry Window which comes up
Type Hpprinter as the filename and save it on the desktop

Get back to the same Registry Key
Right Click the Key and Click Delete to remove the key


Restart the computer
THERE SHOULD BE NO DEP ERRORS THIS TIME

(IF you have any issues after deleting the above key <possibility is remote> restore the computer back to the Hp restore point)

*******************************************

Reinstall the Hp printer Wirelessly or on a wired network now the usual way


Once the software installation finishes
Verify functionality

*******************************************
NOW
Right-Click My Computer, then click Properties.

On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

On the Data Execution Prevention tab

Click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select to select the OptOut policy, and then click Add to add the following programs

Create an exception in the DEP for the following programs by browsing to the correct location. The following list outlines the locations:


Hpcmpmgr.exe (x:\Program Files\HP\Hpcoretech\hpcmpmgr.exe)

HPwuSchd2.exe (x:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\hpwuSchd2.exe)

HP Digital Imaging Monitor (hpqtra08.exe) (x:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqtra08.exe)

HP Image Zone Fast Start (hpqthb08.exe) (x:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqthb08.exe)

Generic Host Process for Win32(svchost.exe)
(c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe)

Add all these files one by one by browsing to the locations

Click Apply and OK
Let the computer restart if prompted
******************************************

Its also at times needed to disable
from the Startup of the computer in Msconfig

Hpcmpmgr.exe
HPwuSchd2.exe
HP Digital Imaging Monitor (hpqtra08.exe)
HP Image Zone Fast Start (hpqthb08.exe)

The reason is the above mentioned exceptions to the Data Execution Prevention are loaded after the Startup loads and the DEP may try to shut them down at the startup itself and generate the errors
Unchecking the above files does not mean losing any functionality on the All in One all the features should work properly

2. Corrupted BIOS.
3. Defective wireless adapter.

Before confirming, I request you to perform the below steps to isolate the issue.

Step 1: Update BIOS from the below softpaq:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38173.exe

2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.
NOTE: After the files are unpacked, the Setup program runs automatically. If

download directory.

Remove and reseat wireless adapter:

It says can't execute CEC Main, reinstall program


This is what I know about this issue. I'm guessing you have a built in camera and anti virus program installed on your laptop. What you will have to do is to uninstall the driver for the camera, and disable your anti virus for a while. then you can reinstall your camera and it should work.
If you need further assistance with the procedure, let me know and I will help you with detailed instrucations. I will need to know what anti virus you have and which windows you have installed

Ceccmdll.dll cec-MAIN.EXE HAS STOPPED WORKING


Have you just installed a new security app such as Kaspersky?

If so you could so allow CEC_main.exe in the firewall which should cure the problem.
