This software in included with many different imaging devices (cameras, printers, etc).

It is not essential to the running of your computer and you can remove it if you find the warnings annoying.

Try looking in the Control Panel->Add and Remove programs to see if you can remove it.

Alternatively, you can stop it from running when your computer starts:

1) Press the Windows Key (next to the left Alt key) and the R key together to open a run dialog.
2) Type msconfig (press enter)
3) Go to the "Startup" tab
4) Look for any lines with Arcsoft in them and untick them
5) Press OK
6) Reboot your computer

For more information on this program, and how to uninstall it look here:

Many thanks,

A window keeps popping up saying arcsoft connect daemon has stopped working. how do i correct fhis problem. i am not an expert so please go easy

Hello, Arcsoft is a suite of media handling programs. Arcsoft Connect is used for online connection (updates, new goodies etc). It would be odd if you have 'Connect' without any other of their products, so you might want to uninstall those first if they exist In order to remove that from your computer lets try these methods. Method 1: If it is installed into C:\Program Files, you may be able to uninstall it via programs and features.
To do that follow the link provided below. Uninstall or change a program

Method 2: Try disabling the "ArcSoft Connect Daemon" service from Services before you start. To do that you need to follow these steps: 1. Click on start button.
2. Type in services.msc in the search field.
3. Now locate the "ArcSoft Connect Daemon" service and right click on it and select disable. Now reboot the computer and check if the issue gets resolved. Method 3: If the above method doesn't resolve the issue, you may try downloading the windows installer cleanup utility and install it on your computer and try removing the arcsoft program and check for the issue. To do that you need to follow the links provided below. Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

For clean up and installation you can refer to the below mentioned link:

Every time i start up my laptop w/OS windows vista i get a window which says arcsoft connect daemon, not working or something like that. if i try to update it says its the updated version. is this a trial...

Have you tried going to Control Panel>Programs and Features and uninstalling the arcsoft program? If that doesn't work, do the following:

  1. Open the Start menu and go to Run... Or, if Run... is not available, skip it and go to the little bar you can type in at the bottom of the start menu
  2. Type "msconfig" (without the quotes)
  3. When the window pops up, go to the Startup tab
  4. Find the arcsoft entry and disable it.
  5. Reboot your computer. The msconfig window will open up again to be sure that your settings are the way you want them, you can just close it.

When i start up my laptop i get a message that the arcsoft connect daemon has stopped working


I believe there are several options that may help or solve this problem

1st. go to start tab bottom left
type in services.msc find the arcsoft software and stop it and ok it

Restart laptop and see if that will stop it bugging you if not

2nd go to start tab bottom right and depending on what os you are running go to control panel
uninstall programs/programs and features and un install the arcsoft software
and restart laptop to see if this solves your problem if not


good luck

When I turn on my computer it says ArcSoft Connect Daemon has stoped working. What does this mean?

That means Arcsoft could not find the files it requires to carry out the last operation it was asked to carry out.
If Arcsoft is installed correctly and not a new install, run CHKDSK/F to check for errors. If it is a new install, make sure it is compatible with whatever you are trying to action.
