    Default DCMProvider?

    Every once in a while I'll randomly get a pop up telling me that "DCMProvider has stopped working." Anyone know what this app is/does and should I be concerned that it keeps crashing? It doesn't seem to have any negative effects so far. Google has not yielded any results.

    Did anyone find an answer on this one.

    I cant find any information anywhere, but the DCMProvider is still hogging the battery power on my Samsung Galaxy 5 and I have disabled the Samsung Link Provider???

    Did you reboot and recharge the phone before determining it was still there?

    I receive the same message quite regularly since upgrading to the S5: "Unfortunately DCMprovider has stopped". I've tried everything suggested on this thread so far but I still get the message.
    I used Smart Switch Mobile to transfer apps/files from my S3. Could it be that something needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    I was having this issue, but what I did was taking a backup from my files, apps, etc using Kies 3 and then, factory reseting my phone. Now , I haven't encountered with this issue since the factory reset.

    I just tried this today and it works so far.

    Settings - Apps - All - DCMprovider - Force Close then Clear Data

    I found a video on youtube, but apparently i'm not able to post links on here yet. Hope it works for you all. Took me 4 months to get it off my screen lol.

    What does DCMProvider actually do? I get the impression that it is a System Tool of some kind, but I can't find anything that says what DCM is and why it needs a provider.
