IE7 crashes when loading .png files

Q: IE7 crashes when loading .png files

Exactly what it says above.

I use a program to support a Flash chat client, and this program forces links to open in IE. This presents a problem when I accidentally click a .png link, as IE7 opens, quickly flashes the Quicktime logo (which it uses to load .png, apparently), freezes, and Windows Explorer stops wroking right until I kill IE in the task manager. To clarify "stops working right," whenever I click any other window in the task bar, it just flashes instead of changing to that window.

Firefox is my normal browser, but as I said above, this program forces links to open in IE. I tested this by navigating to a .png image in IE independent of the chat client, and I get the same problem, so it isn't caused by the client.

I'm running an HP Pavilion m9040n media PC. Vista Home Premium SP1, 32-bit. 3GB DDR2 RAM. Upgraded with a GeForce 8800GT graphics card.

I know IE doesn't support .png as much as Firefox does, but other people who use the same client and click the same links don't have crashing problems, so...

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: IE7 crashes when loading .png files

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.)

Hi.

My windows explorer crashes and restarts every time I perform some action (e.g., opening a file, moving a file, saving a file). I get the standard "windows explorer encountered a problem and needs to shut down; sorry for the inconvenience" message. In addition, trying to attach a file (mostly word documents) crashes the web browser - IE and firefox simply close, chrome gives an error message "plug-in crash - shockwave flash" and becomes unresponsive.

I very much appreciate your help.

I looked and couldn't find any on going or previous threads about my specific problem so if there is please excuse me.
I am running WinXp Pro with Firefox 37, it has ran fine without problems really until now. Started Firefox and before it even opened I get a crash report that gives me the option to restart it or quit. No matter how many times I try to restart, even in safe mode it does the same thing, crashes before opening. So, I uninstalled it and removed all traces of it in my Reg and did a search for any remaining bits and deleted them. Even download Revo and it shows no signs of Firefox/Mozilla anywhere. Still had the origal install file so I reinstalled, did the same thing. Download a new version, did the same thing. So then I downloaded Opera and I'm using Internet Exploder 8 all this time which won't connect to certain sites I reckon because it's no longer supported. But, anyway I download Opera for win xp several times with the same result, it wouldn't load/install. And yes I turned off my Norton antivirus to install. So All I have is IE 8 and it's as worthless as you know what. Anyone have any ideas?
Oh! and I did a virus scan and a Malwarebytes scan with no results. Something doesn't want me online.

Hi there,

It could be that Windows XP is no longer supported but try this, download/install "Google Chrome" and see if the same issue happens.

By any chance, do you have another computer at your place running Windows XP? If so, install Mozilla Firefox on that computer and if assuming everything works fine on that computer, then the issue relies on that specific computer you're using.

Hi,
I have a Gateway laptop running Windows XP Home Edition (SP2). During the XP loading screen (the black screen with XP logo and green status bar) I would get a blue screen of death. The error message of this BSOD was:

STOP: c0000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because basekgjl32 was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I was able to boot into safe mode and run a scan using AVG 7.5. I do not know what version of virus definitions I had.

AVG found a file named "basekgjl32.dll" in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory. AVG classified it as a trojan horse named BackDoor.Generic9.AJUI. AVG successfully healed it. I tried rebooting to see if that fixed the problem, but it did not. I still receive the same BSOD. To make matters worse, now I cannot boot into safe mode. I now receive the same BSOD when I try.

I have researched this BackDoor trojan and similar ones like it, but I have yet to find any methods of successfully removing it or dealing with this type of scenario.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hello TSG! It's been a long time since I found another problem which I can not fix by me self. But now, I have found one that is driving me mad! So I bought the game PURE from gamestop, and installed it on my windows 7 machine. My computer passes beyond the Recommended requirements, so there shouldn't be any problem with that. Anyway, it first took quite a while to install, I'd say about 5-7 minutes installing, and once it was done, I couldn't wait to play because I LOVED the demo. So I boot the game up and it takes like 20-30 secs to load the first loading, and then I get the intro video of the game, then another loading screen with the title, "PURE", written on it. This one takes something about less than 1 minute to load and then it asks me for creating a new sav and all, and once I'm done with that, the game stands on black screen for 1-2 secs then I get the program not responding error. I have downloaded the latest drivers for my graphic card, and have tried the compatibility settings, but none of these seem to work. I also installed the game on my Windows XP partition, but I got the same error. Then after all that, I took the game back to Gamestop and exchanged it for another copy because I thought it was the CD's fault. But no, even after installing it with the new copy, my game keeps crashing after it passes the save screen. I have no idea what could be causing this problem, as my computer is really fast and al my drivers are u... Read more

Hi. first time here =x

anyway let me get to the point. I just bought a copy of FF8 from my nearest retail bookstore and it installed pretty smoothly (less than 1minute, give or take). However when i try to run the program all i could see was a black screen and nothing else. After that when i pressed ctrl + alt + delete and pressed on task manager, the FF8 program had the status of 'Not Responding'.

I also tried to changed to compatibility mode to WinXP,Windows 2000 and Windows 98/Me but it also results in the same problem -- black screens.

Also when i changed compatibility mode to Windows Me/98 i recieve this error :
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the problem."
This error is not seen when i change mode to 2000 and XP(SP2).

is there anyway to run the game without installing any new 'old' graphic cards?

Hello,

I had recently done some modification to my wife's computer and now it will no longer load up. It goes through the hardware screen for the motherboard, begins to show the Windows 7 icon, but suddenly stops and restarts itself as the icon begins to come together.

Today, I swapped out her motherboard, processor, and graphics card with new ones. All of the cables are hooked up correctly, but I'm unsure what the problem could be. Below are the parts I have put in it now:
Sapphire Radeon R7 250 (graphics card)
ASUS M5A78-M LX Plus (motherboard)

I have been having problems with my family computer where Windows gets to the laoding screen and crashes, which it does in a loop and then occasioanlly turns on. I had this problem a while back but a change of hard drive and a clean install of Windows 7 (it was previously XP) seemed to of cured it. But last night the problem returned, there was a BSOD out of no where and then it returned into its looping process.

I switched out the current hard drive, RAM and CPU with my other gaming computer and it also caused that to crash. So I first took out the hard drive and it still crashed but swithing the RAM again seemed to of cured the problem. However, when I put different RAM in the computer with the initial problems it still came up with the same problem.

After adding the ASIO plugin from SourcForge and adjusting settings, I removed the two default locations from the library and added my own music folder.

Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks,

Hello, I've gone through a bit of the internet trying to find help with a problem I've been having with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2. Currently on Onderon (first planet I went to after Telos), my game keeps crashing on loading screens between docks and the market square, and the market square and the cantina (early parts of Onderon). I've updated my drivers to current, and tried (though failed, for some reason) to update the game, too. When it crashes, the KOTOR style mouse turns to the regular white windows mouse, freezing the loading screen right near the end of the loading bar, and coming up with the message that the program has to be closed.

I found a similar problem someone on these forums had (http://forums.techguy.org/games/933566-kotor-2-crashes.html), this was the only instance I could find of an issue similar to mine?

As for specifications, I use the Mss32.dll fix for Win 7, running the game in Win XP SP 2 Compatibility mode. My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT for Windows 7 32 Bit, 4 GB memory, a dual core processor @ 1.87 GHz on a Dell Inspiron the precise name of which I don't directly know. I'd really appreciate any help as I've only been playing the game for about 4 days and since I'm really enjoying it, I'd hate to have to give it up.

If it is still under warranty, you can call them and they won't charge you.

Otherwise, my first suspect would be your hard drive. Try booting it up with any Windows installation disc, or your recovery disc. If it boots properly from the cd, you can see whether or not your hard drive is corrupted, or dead.

Windows Xp crashs during windows loading screen and reboots. Displays a blue screen with no errors on it only the stop information, 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xBA52F380, 0xBA52f07c,0x8AD5980F). This blue screen stays up for less than a second, needed to video record it to get the numbers. Windows doesn't load in normal mode, or any of the safe modes. I have tried chkdsk /r and /p. Bootcfg /scan fails, and /rebuild also fails. I have also cleared Cmos on my motherboard, which didn't work either. I also tested the ram, tried booting with 1 of 3 sticks in 3 times rotating the sticks, I wouldn't think all 3 would fail at the same time. The HD does show serial numbers tho and appears to be working. This all started when i was running a virus scanner, it crashed, and the problems started. Any help is appreciated, I have yet to try fixmbr, and a repair install. The fixmbr says it could cause a problem with the HD, that is the reason I haven't tried it yet.

Anyway I tried installing it once again and it went OK but when I run it for the fist time it crashes on the startup while loading the "EPS IMPORTER" I doubt it could be memory problems since I have about 256Mb in RAM and 15 GB in disk; I also tried installing a compact version but it has the same problem..anyone knows how can I fix this?
 

A:Adobe Premiere crashes while loading EPS IMPORTER

I can't say I have the exact answer, but I do know that I have the same type of problem with Ulead Media Studio (hangs and locks up on opening) if I have certain other programs running at the same time.

Make sure that you kill as many progs as possible before starting.

I updated to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 yesterday. I have a HP Pavillion laptop and it was compatible for the upgrade. Since I have upgraded, everytime I log in it freezes immediately. I have left it for hours and it still won't unfreeze. I can't do anything on it and need it asap for schoolwork.

A:Crashes immediately upon loading desktop screen

You have the option to revert back to 8.1 within 30 days.
There still seems to be some issues coming out for those taking it up.
It might be best to try W10 in a month when bugs are ironed out.

Does rebooting and updating work?

Quite a bizarre one - every time I try to view the properties of any file or folder, I'm met with:

"Explorer.exe - Application Error

The instruction at "0x02e1415b" referenced at "0x000000000". The momory could not be "written".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program"

Has anyone even encountered this before? Searching the forums produced nothing.

Thank you very much for your time and effort - it's well appreciated.

Issues Ive seen about this had to do with a "laptop" This is about my desktop, thus a different issue.

Anyway here are my specs.

Battlefield 2142 works perfectly fine on my computer, on this game i played it after I installed battlefield 2(I got the collectors edition) and it worked fine(this is on SP) only it was a bit laggy/slow. Then I installed the whole thing, and i put click on the icon and it would show a loading screen, that woudl go poof then a black screen blinks up and then nothing happends.

This is what ive tried

compatibility techniques(with properties)
Couple tricks i learned online
updated direct X
updated My drivers
and some other things.

In my opinion its Vista, I don't know why it doesn't like this game... Can anyone assist me? Brand new game I got, I got tired of playing the same games over and over...

While installing only 1 error came up a few times

"Battlefield 2 was only tested on 32 bit color"\

Only error I got.
Can anyone give me a simple solution(Buying another computer isn't a solution, this is brand new.)

Also I would like to note I waited a WEEK INA HALF just to receive a confirmation email from this site to make a account.

A week ago I got a blue screen of death which I've never gotten on this (~3-4 year old) machine. When it booted back up it loaded a BiOS I'd never seen before Gigabyte UEFI double BiOS. Over the next several days the computer was rebooted and the normal BiOS came up without an issue. 3 days ago the computer was started up, shut down and restarted. On the second restart It got hung up on the Windows screen with this error

I restarted and everything worked just fine. I ran antivirus and anti malware scans which came up with nothing. I also ran chkdsk which came up just fine. Every time I turn the computer on sometimes it's fine, sometimes I get the alternate BiOS and sometimes Windows loads with a messed up screen resolution (which is fixed upon restart).

I've tried to read on this an other forums but I don't know what's going on. I don't know whether a plug is loose or if the motherboards failing or what. I'm not sure what other checks I can do. The intermittent nature of a seemingly big problem is inexplicable. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi all,

I have a problem with my new computer. I am also new to windows 7 and am still getting used to everything. On the first start up of the day windows crashes to a BSOD just after the loading screen. I start windows repair on the restart and let it do its thing, then windows starts up fine. I doubt that windows repair did anything as no messages came up on startup or during the repair.

I don't have any information of the BSOD, my motherboard restarts after the crash and I don' get a chance to read the problem, I will post the problem when I have worked out how to stop it automatically restarting.

The computer runs fine after it is "warmed up" so to speak, and I am guessing thats why it starts after Start up Recovery has done its thing which appears to be nothing

I have attached 2 minidump files from previous crashes, windows didn't make one of the most recent.

Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated, it's not really a problem but more of a nuisance.

A:Windows Crashes to BSOD after loading screen

ok, heres an update.

I stopped windows restarting after a crash and I could write down some info about the BSOD that came up most recently. It had the stop codes 0x0000008e (0XC0000005, 0x82CD9A8A, 0x8C7936A4, 0x00000000) with an error with NTFS.SYS PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA.

Windows didn't just start up this time, I had to run startup recovery, and this time it said that it couldn't fix the problem and sent up an error in the system file integrity check part of the test with a code of 0x490.

I told windows to make a full dump file, so I cant send it my bad. I have changed but any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did a clean install of a XP Pro SP2 (I got hold of a new one to replace my old XP Home). I followed instructions I obtained from Techspot except that I loaded the system drivers before I got all the upgrades for Windows (it is now running XP Pro SP3).

Everything went well until I loaded Yahoo Messenger and I immediately had the system crash and reboot. I received a Windows "your system has recovered from a serious error" message that suggested it was caused by driver or hardware incompatibility. When the system rebooted, Messenger started to load automatically - I clicked the X to close it and the system crashed again and rebooted with the same Windows error message.

I tried to open several other things and each time the system crashed and rebooted. Ultimately I opened Control Panel and removed Yahoo Messenger and then did a search and deleted all files relating to it. The system operated fine at this point.

I downloaded several different versions of YM but each time it crashed - often before it had finished installing properly (when this happened, on rebooting, the YM shortcut was on the desktop and YM automatically started to load but didn't complete. Sometimes YM was in the Control Panel list when this happened, on other occasions, even though it appeared on the desktop and started to load it wasn't in the list of programs in CP that could be removed. I had to delete all the YM files and folders by finding them first in Search.

Ok, I have basically no computer knowledge, but I will describe my problem to the best of my ability. The other day my cousin came over for a barbeque, he is supposably the family computer genius so I let him on my computer. He started editing the registry, saying he was removing so called "viruses". I have no knowledge of what he added/removed to/from the registry during this time but when I next went on the computer after he had left (all he did after editing the registry was exit the registry editer) I was unable to click on any of my desktop short cuts or the buttons on the menu bar such as start. I then rebooted by holding the power button thinking everything would be fine but the computer froze after the windows xp loading screen, showing the screen where you login to your account, except with only a windows xp logo in the middle of the screen, no login tabs. I tried rebooting numerous times but the problem persisted. I have no idea where to go from here. If any extremely smart and computerly talented people have any ideas about solving my problem, please explain in full detail, as I have only basic computer knowledge. I may not be able to answer any questions you have for several days as I can only do this at a friend?s house now. Thanks for reading this and I apologise for any bad spelling/grammar. I am only fourteen years old.

Hello there,
 
I've been having issues with my computer for the past 3 days and have tried to solve the issue from what I've dug up online and familiar posts on this website to no avail. Whenever I load up a game (ex. Dark Souls 3, Overwatch, etc.) my computer shuts down unexpectedly and restarts itself. No bluescreen or error messages, no new minidump files.
 
I've tried to disable restart on critical failure yet it continues to reboot on it's own. I've ran HWMonitor and haven't seen anything that seems out of place unless I'm missing something. I've ran prime95, no unexpected shutdown. I then ran FurMark and my computer would instantly shutdown and restart so I assumed the GPU was going bad so I brought it over to a friends to try it with his system and it ran Grand Theft Auto 5 without problems. I then removed one stick of ram and tested them individually, 1 caused an instant crash upon loading up my character in Dark Souls 3 and the other did fine for 15 minutes until I crashed again.
 
I am now curious if this is a PSU issue and wondering if there is anything I can try to tell if the PSU is simply dying, if my version of Windows 7 is now on the fritz, or if there is something I've overlooked entirely.
 
My computer specs are:
 
i7-4790K quad core (Never overclocked)
asus z97-k/csm lga 1150 atx intel motherboard
16gb (2x8gig) RAM
Geforce GTX 970
Thermaltake 600 watt PSU
Windows 7
 
Thank you in advance!

A:Computer crashes and reboots upon loading games.

Another thing to note I have tried uninstalling and deleting every nVidia driver and folder and installed all new versions without any difference. I did not change the registries however because I did not want to take that risk. 
 
This is also a screenshot of HWMonitor without a game open.

3/10/2012, I was going to play the chapter The Fall on Portal 2, but after it loaded Windows became unstable, the clock, status and date showed up and then windows crashed. Please help me.

A:Windows 8 becomes unstable and crashes after loading a map in Portal 2

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible. If you are overclocking STOP You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking. To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:




* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine. * Zip up the copy. * Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button. *If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:




* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter. * Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button. * Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked. * Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies). * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump. * OK your way out. * Reboot if changes have been made.

I can't use windows media center either because it gives me a blackened file windows where the windows media center startup screen is supposed to be.

Also yesterday night I was unfortunate enough to receive a blue screen with a bunch of error codes so I shutdown my computer unplugged it and went to bed... Anyways yeah I know I should just reinstall my os and be done with this but I already did a repair install not too long ago and it took me weeks to get my computer back to where it was at (12 hours a day with no job lol)...

I just installed Windows 7 on my machine. I have it directly connected to the router. I can connect to google and msn, but whenever I browse for any other web page, it stalls during the loading and crashes my internet.

When I ping google.com, I get an 100%. All packets go through.

When I ping anything else but google, I get 0%.

The other computers on my connection have no problem and can access these web pages. Its just my new desktop. This occurs both in IE and Firefox.

Howdy y'all. I realize this is a bit of a nebulous question... I'm not doing it on purpose it's just that I don't have a lot to go on. Here's the deal: I have a machine(Dell precision T3500) with Win7Pro64 on it. I have both Xming and Exceed loaded on the machine. When I try to open an xterm (while connecting to either a 32 or 64 bit linux machine) sometimes it will work ok and sometimes it wont'. Actually it doesn't work most of the time. I can open a few xterms and some will work and some will be frozen. Sometimes it freezes the login window. But the fact that it happens while connecting to different linux machines and using different emulators (Xming and Exceed) makes me think it's a Win7/Putty problem. Sometimes I can just go get a cup of coffee and when I come back the xterm is frozen. I get a worthless error message that says something like "a problem casued the program to stop working properly" and another message that says "SSH, Telenet and Rlogin client has stopped working". I have no idea how to troubleshoot this. If anyone has come across this or has any ideas I should would be glad to hear them. Thanks!

Hello all.
I have recently reformated my hard drive (a few days ago). And now, everytime i try to load a web page in IE, the program shuts down. I ran full system scans with registry mechanic, spyware doctor, norton, and stopzilla, all finding nothing but a few minor problems (like cookies, etc) which were corrected. This didn't help. And now none of my programs can connect to the internet even though the connection itself is working properly.

Before i reformated, i had the "anti virus pro" virus which had made my computer unusable. I thought i had cleard all the registry keys out which made my computer usable except for the fact that no programs could connect to the internet despide my connection being fine (much like it is doing now). So, i decided to reformat the drive. My computer (sony vio) has a recovery partition which reformats the main partition to the factory state. Is there a chance that the virus spread to the recovery partition and therefore spread to the newly formated main partition?

Please help, i feel like its the episode of southpark where there's no internet. At least i still have my phone.

Hi Edril. This may help you resolve this issue. Sounds like an IE problem not a virus.

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFIX.htm


Click the Apply button

You'll be prompted for the Operating System CD or the Service Pack Files location:

If you're using Windows 2000/XP, insert the Operating System CD. For OEM systems, point to the Operating System source path when prompted. If you've applied a Service Pack separately, you need to insert the Slipstreamed Operating System CD (if you have one) or point the installer to the ServicePack source path when prompted (see Fig 2 below). Mention the path as "C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386" or "C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles"

If you don't have the Windows installation CD, and if the installation source files are not present in the hard disk, you may click Cancel. IEFix will continue with DLL registration part.

Restart Windows


Hope this helps you.

My computer would not go through the restore process after first start. After it powered down, tried to start and f8 won't work. Any suggestions?

Ive tried reinstalling the game but that didnt help either. Another thing too, instead of the map's background image, it just shows a gray screen while loading the map. The regular 1942 works fine. I even have BFV on there and it has no issues at all. Any help would be great!
