Allshare Error Message Is Causing Weeping and Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth

Allshare Error Message filter: We have recently purchased a Samsung Smart Blu-Ray Player. The big attraction for us was that it would enable us to play shows downloaded from the Internet via the Allshare program. However, after I downloaded Allshare and tried to run it, I received the following error: "The Allshare shared server has shut down. It will restart." I would close the message, and it would come back again and again.

I've Googled for this and have found a couple of suggestions (uninstall/reinstall, try running in admin mode, try doing a clean boot). However, none of these work. (Note: when I tried to do a clean boot I didn't go all the way to the end of the instructions simply because some of the options I was told to check off were not available to me. I don't like working with system stuff at the best of times, and I didn't want to mess up, so I restored the defaults and got out of there.) Does anyone know how I can fix this?
