I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I dont think it has to do with 3D Mark.

Try memtest86 - let it run for 10 loops or more and see if you have memory issues.

I am getting the (program) "has encountered a problem and needs to close error report with a number of programs on my PC."

It started with Outlook (2003) then Sony Media Manager and now Mailwasher Pro. I can use Outlook to send and receive messages OK and the error only appears as Outlook is closing down. My Mailwasher Pro update won’t run at all and produces the error report when I try to run it.

In the last couple of weeks I have tried to download a number of programs, some install and run OK and some produce the above error report when I try to run them.

I was able to download, install and run Media Monkey and Anvir Task manager OK. The problem seems to be with some problems and not others.

The nearest event I can think of that coincided with the start of this problem was the installation of a program called Evernote which I have since uninstalled.

Extra info: I HAVE used Black Vipers site to alter my system services and I do use Revo uninstaller to uninstall unwanted programs.

My system is Windows XP sp3

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks

this first happened to me a few days ago when i tried to play a file i had downloaded from bit torrent. any kind of attempt to access the file resulted in the program encountering an error and needing to shut down [send/dont send error report etc].
i.e. if i tried to look at the file in its folder, windows explorer would need to shut down, if i tried to play it in wmp, it would shut down, divx the same.

i ran g-spot on the file and i had all required codecs to play it. so i figured the file was just corrupt and deleted it. now i cannot play any of my avi files that have worked perfectly for years. i have them burnt to dvd, but i now cannot access any of them. its not my dvd drive, as i can still play actual dvd's. i have some avi files stored on my hard drive that still play.

this is a most frustrating problem. i was watching these AVIs not more than a few weeks ago, now i cant access them at all without this error being generated.

i have run a scan on my computer and havent turned up any virus' etc.

please help!!!!!!!!

Here's a little background on my system:

There are 5 users on the computer. Of course, I usually log on with my own account.

However, since 2 days ago, everything has literally started to fall apart. First of all, when I log in, it ATI gives me a messaging say that "The Command Line Interface has encountered an error and has to close." Then a short while after, it would say "Windows explorer has encountered an error and has to close.", even though I was not even using windows explorer.

From then on, any program I would try to use such as Internet Explorer would suddenly freeze and encounter an error. Even when I open MSN Messenger, I get the message "MSN Messenger has encountered an error and has to close.". Any other program I open results in the same sort of error messages and eventually my computer locks up. When I press ctrl-alt-delete, it says that the CPU usage is enormously high (99%-100%) even when I have NO programs open.

The strange thing is that after I log off and go on any body else's Windows XP account, there are absolutely no problems at all.

I am currently scanning my computer for viruses, but none have turned up yet.

Can anybody shed any light on my situation, and why only my account is fatally glitched? I feel extremely helpless and frustrated.

I guess that I have some kind of malware or other problem. In nearly every program, from Microsoft Works, to Internet Explorer, I am recieving messages to the effect of "such and such has encountered a problem and needs to close." In addition, my Iolo System Mechanic scans will not scan the whole way through, they encounter an error. System Mechanic is also prompting me to download the same version update that I have already downloaded- 7.1.12- every single time I turn on the computer. I am also encountering a plethora of "dll" errors, often when I try to shutdown the computer. The "unknown file in winsock" looks suspicious but I don't know what to do about it. The computer overall is not operating that slowly.
Here is my HJT log. Any help would be much appreciated!

Someone please help . I keep getting the error message "Firefox has encountered a problem and needs to close", whenever I open up firefox, iexplorer, or even adaware. It's happening with most my programs.. Sometimes it happens immediately after opening the program, and sometimes it takes a while.I ran a virus scan with AVG, but no viruses were detected. I use Windows XP media center edition SP2. My computer is a Gateway GT4024.

I've also been having problems with the audio. At times it works, and others it doesn't. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

A:"Program has encountered a problem and needs to close"

On maybe a related topic, my audio isn't working at all now. My default audio device seems to be missing. I think it's supposed to be Realtek HD Audio. When I check it under device listing, it says it's working properly. I have no clue.

Hello!

I have been getting a really annoying error lately every time I reboot.

The error message "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" appears a few minutes after start-up.

I click "To see what data this error report contains, click here." and it shows this:

AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.3156 ModName: ws2_32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2180 Offset: 0000664d

I have run Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware Professional and Trend Micro OfficeScan but i still get the problem whenever I restart my computer.

Although my windows seems to be working properly after I click "don't send report" (due to restore settings?), the error message annoys me every time i restart my computer.

What shall I do to repair the problem? Please let me know if you need my HJT log. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!

I'm getting this error message on 90% of programs I try to open. But if I keep trying it will eventually open. It doesn't happen on chrome/firefox, thankfully.

Another problem that I believe is connected to it is that I can't open a browse window. On photobucket for example I'll click "browse" and it won't open. But if I restart the browser a few times it will eventually work, just like the problem above. I had some sort of worm on my computer earlier this month. I removed it and since then ran multiple more scans (malware anti-bytes) and nothing new comes up.

Any help will be appreciated. I know this will be hard to diagnosis, but maybe the problem with the browse window might help narrow it down? It's the first time I've ever heard of that problem occurring.

Thanks.

Please avoid using IE as it only works if you purchase it and that too if its under warranty, else it might throw some or the other errors. Instead, you can try Google Chrome which never give you this sort of problem.

I've been getting the error "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" spasmodically ever since I got my computer, about 2 years ago. It might go a couple of weeks in between errors but recently it's become something like every day or two. Perhaps this coincides with me getting my computer on the net. The screen shows only the wallpaper for a moment then the system comes back on with a few things missing form the system tray, though this may be an effect rather then a cause.

The error did not go away when I reinstalled windows.

Anyway here's a list of the error signatures it gives:

The error indicated on the title of this thread appears every time I try to open multiple programs on my machine; the error is present in at least the following applications: Windows explorer, HP SimplePass, HP CSI Shell, HP Support Assistant, HP Installer, Adobe Acrobat X Pro, Synaptics TouchPad V7.5... and perhaps more.

I include with this message a zip file with some recent logs (CBS. log, Errors Event Viewer, Last Scan.txt, Malware log.txt, Check Disk Event Viewer log) for your review so that both of us can save some valuable time.

Note: I am not by any means an expert on either computer software or hardware so, I would really appreciate if you help me out to sort this issue having that in mind.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Error message: "A problem caused the program to stop working..."

Hi,

Can you remember when this problem started to happen, if so had you made any changes to the computer such as software installations?

If so, you can try a system restore or use a backup if you have one to roll the os back to a time when all was working well and see if this solves your problem

I can almost guarantee that this is either a damaged or corrupt shell or a conflict with some software, as the fact that you can load the operating system up and get past post shows that it's not hardware related in anyway

Thank you

Dear Experts,
Recently, I often got Error "A problem has caused a program to stop working". This happened when I was on Paint, Google Chrome, and some other applications. Here's what I found in Event Viewer. Please tell me what to do.
Thanks all

A:error 0xc0000374 "A problem has caused the program to stop working"

I googled the error and found the error may be a hardware or memory problem.
Just copy the error and paste in a windows search.
How old is your system and how much ram does it have?

Some of sites recommended doing a restore back to when your computer was not having this problem.
I am not an export in solving your error problems but someone will be along to help out in the meantime look under the hood and make sure everything is clean and seated properly.
Might even try a restore also.

Hi,

I am using Windows 7. I'm getting a "there was problem sending a command to the program" error in Firefox 3.6. It stays for a few second then the error msg disappears. I thought updating it would fix the problem, it hasn't. I get this error not when I open the main Firefox.exe module but when I open the shortcuts I have to certain sites on my desktop, like mail, mapquest, telephone, Google, etc. I have replaced the shortcuts but no joy.

What should I do? I tried contacting Mozilla Ezine about this but I couldn't log in.

My wife keeps getting kicked out of Farmville and Pioneer Trail, both on Facebook, with an error message ("A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available") indicating an issue with the application. It seems to be coincidental with our starting to use McAfee virus protection software. The computer is fairly new (i.e. a few weeks old) running on Windows 7. She did not have this issue on Windows XP using AVG virus protection. Any ideas what the issue/solution
 

A:"A problem caused the program to stop working" error

If this started when you installed McAfee, try temperately disabling it. Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center \ Click Advanced \ Click Configure \ Click Computer & Files. Turn Virus Scan off in the right-hand window and set it for how long. Click Internet & Network to do the same with Firewall. Now see if you still get kicked off.

Hello again with another unique problem, Microsoft Office 2007 was re-installed in May. I had recently installed another Hard Drive, & moved all documents, picture, & music file's to the D: Drive, leaving the C: Drive with the Win 7, downloads, & program files. Now I find I can't open an older document file with word. I get there error "There was a problem sending the command to the program" in Windows 10.

A blank word page opens, but does not display the document I selected. I must then select the "open" option, after clicking the "Home" button and search for the document I needed. Then that document opens.

I'm thinking since Office lives on the C: Drive and my documents are on the D: Drive that may be where the problem is.

If so how do fix this? Please with any replies be detailed, as I have history of being my own worst enemy with trying to fix things.

Thanks

A:Word error " There was a problem sending the command to the program"

My wife seems to be having a similar problem with Word in Office 2003. She can only open documents by opening Word first. I have the same software and I also run Windows 10, but I do not have the problem.

If you sorted it I would love to see your solution.

Howdy y'all,
The message continues: "It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of."
The PC is XP Pro SP3 with all patches. Security Essentials is still running and signatures are current. The system won't boot to XP. The message in the title field is displayed in a dialog. After clicking OK, the system iterates a reboot cycle.
Tried to boot using Last Known Good Configuration, but no progress.
Research shows that there was malware that could cause this problem, but not in the last few years.
What might have caused this and how to fix this efficiently? I read an article that recommended restoring the registry files from an earlier version. We'll try this after removing the disk and connecting it to another PC:
http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/214-perform-a-system-restore-manually-when-windows-is-not-bootable
Thanks kindly.

A:lsass.exe: System Error. "Indicates a revision number encountered or specified is not one known to the service."

Issue is resolved. Firstly, we scanned the PC with Windows Defender Offline. No malware was detected. The lsass.exe error occurs when the Security hive of the XP registry is corrupted. The Security hive of the registry consists of a key and files. The
registry key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security, and the files are Security, Security.log, Security.sav.

More information about the Windows registry is in this MSDN article:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms724877(v=vs.85).aspx

To restore the Security hive, we booted the PC to the Recovery Console that was already installed on the local disk. The password for the Administrator account was prompted for and entered.

The Recovery Console command line showed that the current folder was C:\Windows.

CHDIR system32\config
REN security security.old
COPY c:\windows\repair\security
EXIT (to restart Windows XP Pro)

The system rebooted normally.

HTH.

Hello. Recently many computers on our network are unable to search for new updates. We keep getting error code 8024402F and it says "Windows Update encountered an unknown error."

We use Trend Micro Antivirus 7 (SP 1) and do not have the Firewall enabled. I've already tried disabling it, as well as adding the Windows Update URL's to the URL Filter, but no change.

Pls Help! Tips, advice, suggestions to solve this. Thank you.

A:HELP! Pop-up: "Found driver Software, but encountered ERROR" keeps popping up

Hi Milly,

6to4 is a technology related to IPv6 and IPv4 communication. If you want to know more about that, please refer to the following document that focuses on it:

Configuring and Deploying IPv6 on Windows Vista
Download details: Configuring and Deploying IPv6 on Windows Vista

In short, Microsoft 6to4 Adapter is used for communication in mixed environment including both IPv4 and IPv6. *Very* few people are using IPv6 at this point. That will no doubt change in the future when all the IPv4 addresses are used up, but right now all the websites you use and all your network apps know about IPv4, not IPv6. So you're not going to have to worry about IPv6 for quite a while yet.

The simplest solution is to go into Device Manager (Start ? Run ? Type devmgmt.msc and click OK).

In Device Manager, click View and select Show hidden devices ? expand Network Adapters ? right-click on 6TO4 adapter and click on disable.

Reboot your computer.

Please report the results, one way or another.

I don't know if this matters or not, but it has happened w/ Internet Explorer as well and Norton Antivirus. But only a few times. It happens to AOL IM everytime. Also, I JUST got my computer and one of the first things I tried to do was go on AIM so I don't know how I could have aquired a virus in that short of a time.

And I was wondering if someone here could please look at it and tell me where to go from there. If that's not what I need to do, then please tell me what I should do. Anyway, here is my HJT log.

Hi lola678

I think your AIM problem might be more related to Earthlink TotalAccess.

But let's do some cleanup and see what happens.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll need to disable SpySweeper's realtime protection while we run these fixes.

* Open Spysweeper and click on Options > Program Options and uncheck "load at windows startup".
On the left click "shields" and then uncheck everything there.
Uncheck "home page shield".
Uncheck "automatically restore default without notification".
Exit the program.

You can re-enable these when we are finished here.

With IE closed, run Hijack This again.

When you run "Install" The Sims Complete Collection, install it, then play the game, use it for a while... save it and bam! "An error has been encountered". Don't get worked up, look up the game's system configuration requirements, see if your computer is working correctly, check to see if background tasks are running (background tasks will coinsedentially harm your game while playing it), log in to TheSims.EA.com and EA Tech Help, or just reinstall it.
Still having trouble... reboot your computer up, try the game again, erase computer memory (Windows Diagnostics Tool <CD Key may need required to do so>), and/or just use Windows XP/XPS only. Windows(TM) Vista cannot play certain CD games for your information so you know.

"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"

I've spent hours researching this error - Seems like many people have the same issue although there is no difinitive fix or known cause.

I'm hoping someone here has an answer.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM (HP)

This is not an upgraded Vista system.

It's not a specific driver related issue as it's the same response/effect be it graphics/chip set/usb/printer drivers.

Please dont suggest to flatten and re-install or run a repair install - It's not an option, I only have remote access to the unit
as it's currently in field use.

This is a machine specific issue - identical machine purchased at the same time and configured the same has no issue.


So the story.

User has been fine for weeks - no hardware of software changes except Windows Updates.

A Camera/USB connection that was working no longer does.
Tried in all USB ports

Plug in - windows announces found new hardware, tries to install drivers then fails
with "Windows found software for your device but encountered an error installing ...."

Device manager finds and identifies device although it is in the 'Unknown Device" category.

Manually updating drivers via search/internet or point directly at a driver has exactly the same effect.

Hi,
This issue could be caused if Defragment take operation on SSD. And as we know SSD cannot be defragged.

To check if your SSD has been defragmented, please run following powershell command:

Get-EventLog -LogName Application -Source "microsoft-windows-defrag" | sort timegenerated -desc | fl timegenerated, message
Judging by the drive letter, you can easily see if your SSD drive gets defragmented. The SSD volume below has been correctly re-trimmed first, but then erroneously defragged.
You can try following steps to avoid defragmentation of your SSD:
Exclude SSD from automatic maintenance
Open the disk optimizer (dfrgui):

      
Press "Change Settings".      
Press "Choose" and remove checkboxes from SSD volumes.
In addition, I will document it and confirm with product team if it is by design.
Keep post.Kate Li

I am trying to do a clean install on an HP laptop. After many tries (and days), still to no avail.
Before, the install would get started and progress to 6% or 14%. Right now, it fails at 0%. (08x... error).
I read the tutorial on using diskpart. This is where I get the error now: DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. See the System Event Log for more information.
I tried the diskpart with the HD connected to another computer and there it worked. (I ran chkdsk /r before which did not find errors on the HD. And I could load Win7 on it. In my opinion ruling out the Installation disk and HD) But obviously, the installation of Windows after the diskpart, with the HD back in the laptop, still failed.
As I suspected HW I have changed HD, MB and CPU.
I have changed from Windows installer on DVD to Windows installer on USB.
What am I missing?

I have another HP laptop, that I can use every now and then for trouble shooting. Albeit not identical.

Really don't know what to try next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If I understand correctly, you changed the motherboard and CPU on an HP laptop. Is that correct?

I don't know much about laptops, but thought that was a difficult job that is rarely done by end consumers.

Have you attempted to install without using Diskpart?

Is your installation DVD a burned disc? Purchased in a store? Came with the laptop?

Where did you get the ISO from which you made the USB installer?
