First...you 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!

Hold the power button in for a few seconds it will shut down. Then unplug system and push the power button down with it unplugged then replug it in and power up again. Then do a proper shut down again to see if the problem fixed. I hope this assisted you. John
The fasted way is to simply disable the Windows Search service. Run Services (just type “Services” at the Start Search bar), right click on the Windows Search service and select “Properties”. Then choose “Disabled” for the start type. Afterwards, you have to stop this service by right clicking on it and selecting “Stop”.
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?

Ctrl+alt+delete and go to the processes tab and shut down explorer.exe then go to the applications tab and press new task and start explorer.exe. the add/remove window should be gone. If not then you should tell your mom to cover her eyes while you restart :)
