If you receive an error message, There was a problem starting C:\WINDOWS\system32\eed_ec.dll; The specified module could not be found, then this post will help you resolve it. In fact, it is a simple error message which happens because of Samsung Printer driver software.
Run DLL error: eed_ec.dll module could not be found
eed_ec.dll is a part of the Samsung printer driver software. Many users have reported that the file has been missing, and hence when the driver is called upon, or the software is launched, it results in this error. The best way to resolve the problem is by updating the Samsung Driver Software. Before you begin, you should know that Samsung Printer part is now managed by HP. So don’t feel suspicious if you are taken to HP to download the drivers.
- First, download the Samsung Driver or the Software from the official website.
- Next, Open Device Manager (n Win + X, followed by M)
- Locate the Samsung Printer on the list, and uninstall it.
- Restart the computer
- Once back, install the Samsung Driver or the software.
This should resolve the error for sure.
Once installed, if you still face issues, run the Printer Troubleshooter.
Not using the Samsung Printer any more?
If you are not using the Samsung Printer anymore, it would be best to remove the DLL reference from the computer. The right way is to uninstall the software. If you have already done, then it’s probably an entry in the startup that is causing the problem.
Autoruns is software for Windows, which displays the list of programs that launch with the startup programs and delete it.
You can also find it using the Task Manager and then choose to disable it.
I hope the post was easy to follow, and you were able to get rid of the error.
