    i have to ask this: is kies just the worst piece of software ever, in the history of software coding, to have been written. I have NEVER, REGARDLESS OF ADVICE FROM FORUM AFTER FORUM, been able to run or load Kies. the link above has given me yet another version of kies THAT DOESNT WORK. I got YET ANOTHER ERROR MESSAGE: kies installer failed to initialize. I have used a computer for many many years, with many different phones, printers, faxes, devices, gps devices and software. kies is the ONLY piece of software in the i have NEVER been able to use. was it written by monkeys? is it in fact a monumental joke piece of software. it is unblievable that i have never been able to find a single version which will load and perform any function.

    Agreed Samsung Kies is possibly the worst software written – and it makes you wonder if it was ever tested before release.

    Guys, try Revo Uninstaller. I prefer the portable version because you dont need to install it, it just runs. Be warned though, don’t mess around too much!

    Yes, Kies is trash. Total trash. I don’t understand how a company as big as Samsung can create such a monstrosity. I can’t remove this damn thing from my computer…there’s some mega annoying notification that keeps coming up telling me that it has downloaded firmware. Worthless.

    Kies is a major piece of garbage: Huge, slow and does very little. Worst of all it can’t be uninstalled like any other windows software. Can’t believe this junk has passed Samsung quality control.

    Using a MPB running Mavericks (Mac OS 10.9) I noted that there are still leftovers from an installation for an individual user (not system wide) made under an earlier OS version. So I uninstall manually:

    Opened folder /Applications and moved to trash

    and then I `rm -rf’


    Also, in KIES preferences there’s a location give for content data. Default is
    but it may have another location pointing to a folder in the user directory.

    This worked for me perfectly

    Samsung … Kies … worst program I have ever tried.
    – it works sometimes and then it doesn\’t
    – used RevoUnistaller to uninstall (revo uses the samsung unistaller but there is a heap of leftovers in my registry and all the Kies program files remain.
    – I used Revo about 12 months ago … that equates to about 300+ reboots since then and Kies leftovers are still in the registry and the $$##%^ program files are still there.

    Even their TVs (we have bought 2 in 3 years) are full of firmware bugs.
    – next time it will be German gear. German products/software is well thought out and always works.

    UninstallKies.exe extracted from is a total waste of time
    – my PC still has >100 Kies entries in the registry
    – Samsung have been unreliable for over 4 years now.
    – absolutely no instruction on how to use it

  14. Russell says:

    Uninstall.exe (extracted from does nothing.
    – a total waste of time, over 100 registry items remain and no installations are removed
