  • I recommend this solution ONLY if the application you find running the error is not an important component in your system.

    Hello,

    This is what I did.

    1. Turn On PC as normal

    2. Wait for prompt error to show up

    3. When it appears, Run Task Manager (here you can see the task running the Error Prompt)

    4. Right Click on the task and Choose > Go To Process (will take you to processes Tab)

    5. See the highlighted Process, Right Click and Choose Open File Location

    6. Windows Explorer will appear and you can see the Application Folder (name of application)

    In my case, a 'browser toolbar application' was trying to auto initiate itself

    7. Open Uninstall Programs > Search for Application Name > Uninstall

    8. Restart PC.....its gone :)

    In my case, it was lucky that the application I found wasn't anything related to system or anything for i wouldn't know what to do if it was. The application was an external software that was apparently downloaded and installed into my Internet Explorer (I had no recollection of downloading and installing it

  • 1. Why do you hide program path? Here is the starting point for troubleshooting!

    2. Uninstall program that make problems and runtime. Restart and install program again.

    3. Is there any trace in Event log?

  • Check if your program is on Microsoft compatibility list

  • Well that's the thing.

    I'm not hiding it, the exact message is presented in the prompt.

    So I don't know what to do from here....

  • Hi,

     

    Mostly, this kinds of error can be caused by two factors:

     

    1.Runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries are missing.

    2.Software problem.

     

    If the issue is caused by #1, you can reinstall the Runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries to resolve the problem.

     

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632

     

    If the issue still persists after installing above package, the issue should be a software problem. I suggest you take a Clean Boot check whether it is a software conflict issue. If not, it is still recommended to address the problem with manufacturer support. Thank you for your understanding.

      

    Hope this helps.

  • I had the same problem and I resolved it with TweakNow Power Pack 2010. I use Windows XP SP3 32-bit. I guess it was a problem with registry files. So go install the TweakNow and at home section you'll see the windows cleaner, below tick clean registry and clean traces of your computer. After that at Windows Cleaner section (on the left at home screen) make a registry cleaner and finally registry defragmenter. Hope this will help you. Regards

  • Well I'm facing a similar problem but in my case the message doen't pop up when starting but when I open Matlab.

    I really do not want to uninstall it.

    Could someone tell me why the problem occurs and how to fix it other than reinstalling the program?

    Thanks.

  • Hello, 

    I have done these:

    Turn On PC as normal

    2. Wait for prompt error to show up

    3. When it appears, Run Task Manager (here you can see the task running the Error Prompt)

    4. Right Click on the task and Choose > Go To Process (will take you to processes Tab)

    5. See the highlighted Process, Right Click and Choose Open File Location

    6. Windows Explorer will appear and you can see the Application Folder (name of application)

    and found out that the the name of the application was Windows Explorer, explorer.exe file version 6.1.7601.17567, size 2871808 bytes, created 25/07/2011. this error pops up at random, sometimes several times a day and after that it only restarts Windows Explorer. I am running Win 7 pro x 64. 


    O.S.

    UPD.

    I've reinstalled latest C++ runtime - this does not solve anything, Explorer has just crashed again.

  • Thank you. I followed your instructions and found the offending application (apple program called APSDaemon) but couldn't find it in "uninstall", so I just deleted it and problem disappeared. Don't know yet if running apple program is affected, but will face that problem if it occurs. At the very least, you informed me how to identify the offending program. Thanks again.
