Error msg.: SmartBridge Alerts

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Frank Kapitan, Mar 31, 2006.

  1. After I installed IE7 I get the following message every time I start the
    computer:
    SmartBridge Alerts: MotiveSB.exe – Entry Point Not Found
    The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in
    the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL

    Any suggestions for fixing it?

  3. That is non-essential software "diagnosis" software used by some ISPs when
    troubleshooting problems. Disable it unless you need it.

  4. Thank you Sandi. How can I disable the msg? I click OK on it and it
    disappears but it reappears every time I start the compute.

    I have removed the interrupting MSG from my system. I dont see the
    problem anymore.

    You may want to that.

  6. It depends on your ISP. Check MSCONFIG for a start.

    WindowsXP wouldn't let me run MSConfig. Here in Canada I use Bell Sympatico.
    As this problem seems to be ISP related I decided to run Sympatico's
    NetAssistant. It has removed an older version and is installing a newer
    version of this product. The update process is managed by Motive...no
    surprise. I've since rebooted and the problem no longer exists.

    Getting the same message. In my case it has to do with Verizon DSL software
    which I think is unimportant since I never use their 'features'. I checked my
    STARTUP on config.sys and will probably disable the program.

    I finally downloaded IE7 and experienced this same annoying problem. I found
    the solution to the issue on another board, tried it and it works. Here's
    what you do:

    Click the "Start" button, choose "Search" then click "All files and folders"
    option.

    In the "All or part of the file name" search box type "SmartBridge" and look
    for a folder to come up with the name "SmartBridge".

    Click on the folder and locate the file called "psapi.dll". Right-click on
    the file and rename it as "psapiold.dll" or "psapi_old.dll" or something
    similar.

    Close all open windows and applications and reboot your computer.

    The message should now be disabled from reappearing.

    Good luck!

    Thank you, Wabbitt. Renaming that dll removed the annoying message.

    It worked for me too - but are there any other implications of renaming this
    file? If not, why is it there in the first place?

    Wabbit's solution may well get rid of the error message but there may still
    be problems with the underlying software.
    I got this message using BT Broadband Help and did the rename but when I ran
    the software I got script errors and the software just hung.

    BT claim they are working on it but at the moment their only solution is to
    revert to IE6.

    Ths may well be the same with other companies.
