Program “stopped working” after switching back RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I would like to ask a question on the “stopped working” message of a program in Windows 7.

    In order to prevent my ATI Radeon graphic card from overheating, I disabled most of the visual appearance options in System properties->Advanced->Performance options.


    I am using an Adobe Acrobat alternative called PDF-XChange Viewer, which runs smoothly before doing the abovementioned change. But after making the change,  if I am keeping several instances of that program open and working in other application for some time and then switch back to the PDF viewer, I often get “PDF-Xchange Viewer has stopped working” message and was forced to close it.

    Screenshot of the message and "Performance options" settings


    Does anyone know the cause and fix to this problem?

  • Hi,


    Thanks  for the post!


    According to your description, after you made the change, the issue happened. It could be some visual performance settings influence this program. I recommend you uncheck the visual effects box one by one to check which could cause that.
