Skype for Business No longer launches; "Stopped Working"

Q: Skype for Business No longer launches; "Stopped Working"

Running Windows 7 Professional and Office 365 Professional which included Skype for Business. When I installed Office 365 Pro the other day everything was working just fine. This morning I updated iTunes and rebooted. Skype for Business no long loads now. I get the "Microsoft Lync has stopped working" with the usual two options to check online for solutions or close the program.

What I've tried: -I already tried rebooting again, didn't work
-I ran sfc.exe /scannow and that found no errors.
-Ran CCLeaner Registry cleaner to see if it found anything broken related
-Ran the quick repair for Office 365, nothing...
-Ran the full repair for Office 365, nothing...
I'm at a lost here. One thing I did notice though when I try to launch it, before it gives me the error, my desktop icons "flash" as if its attempting to do something with explorer.exe.

Any help would be appreciated!

First off, thank you for taking the time to read this and help little ol' me out. I've been having a problem lately, where programs crash when I attempt to start them. It's happening with all of the following programs: Skype, Oovoo, Champions Online, Neverwinter, D&D: Eberon unlimited. When I attempt to start the program, it immediately comes up with a box saying "X has stopped working" X being any of those programs listed above. This problem used to just affect D&D and Champions Online, but for some reason, it started affecting other programs similarly just the other day. I think it might have something to do with the launchers and when they connect with the internet, because the static Oovoo launcher only crashes when I click "Connect with Facebook" or try to click log in. The other launchers crash immediately. Here are my specs:Windows 7 64 bit. Manufacturer is Acer, the model is Aspire 5830TG, Intel? Core ? i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.30GHz, 6.00 GB of ram (5.85 GB usable). I would be ridiculously grateful if anyone could help me, thank you for your time, just ask me if you need to know anything else about the computer to figure out the problem.

Is this still the inferior Factory Preinstalled Win7 with all of the bloatware and duplicate utiltiies which have better versions built into Win7? These throttle Win7 from its native performance and cause endless issues.

That's why most tech enthusiasts will not run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything is provided in the blue link tutorial.

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Sometime over the last few weeks Google's "More" drop-down and its "Search Tools" menu items have quit working in IE10. The other buttons that let you select web, images, shopping, etc. still work properly.

The "More" and "Search Tools" buttons get focus when the mouse is over them and they animate when clicked but nothing happens. I have Google Chrome and Apple's Safari installed and the buttons work properly on these browsers.

I've googled it but most of the posts found are about a not-quite-the-same problem of the buttons just working momentarily. At any rate, I tried the fix [clearing cache and cookies] that some of the posters said worked but it didn't make any difference.

I've disabled all of the ad-ons and the problem is still there. I re-enabled each add-on one at a time and tried it but none of them had any effect.

I've disabled my Norton Security Suite and the problem still exists.

I've reset IE and, other than losing all of my saved passwords, it too made no difference.

I think this might be a useful clue.

I noticed that for all of the buttons that are working, when I pass the mouse pointer over them it displays a URL down in the status bar. However, for the two that are not working nothing is displayed. It appears that the controls associated with these buttons either don't exist or are being blocked.

Does anyone have the solution for this, or at least and idea of what the problem is?

Thanks in advance for ... Read more

A:Google "More" and "Search Tools" buttons no longer working...

Hello Howard,

you can observe one thing here. All the menu items are just links. But More and Search Tools menu items are different. More is drop down menu and Search Tools also kind of drop down but with sub menu items.

So it seems like there are some script errors with your IE 10 browser.

But i am sorry, re installing IE is the only option i can suggest.

I have a piece of software that periodically fails for some unknown reason. I have pretty much given up on trying to figure out what its problem is. I simply respawn the process if it fails to respond or no longer exists. The process runs several times a
minute. Occasionally, I get an error message saying my software "has stopped working" followed by another messagebox saying my software "is restarting". And then it restarts my process. This is beyond stupid since my process requires command
line arguments that are not being provided when this restart occurs. I simply want to disable these messages or at least
disable this auto restart. Is there any way to do this?


I have already tried the regedit hack:

I'm using Windows 7 and for the last couple days I've been flooded with all sorts of "Program" has stopped working" notifications, from everything from the nvidia control panel to windows explorer to various processes that I don't even recognize that must be other ordinary windows processes. These just happen without warning, and when I restart my computer, I get about ten of them right on startup, everything is crashing and I don't know why?

chkdsk came up with nothing.
as per suggestion by another user I booted into safe mode -- the crashes do not occur within safe mode -- good to know. I opened cmd and ran 'sfc /scannow'. no results.

also, a user suggested it may be my ram -- I don't believe this is the case because my XP installation runs just fine on the same hardware.

i restarted the computer into normal windows and even before windows could boot it said userinit.exe and runoncewrapper both crashed then windows media player, then realtek audio, then nvidia, and a ton of other processes. In fact it seems like every process that runs it happens to, even the screensaver. thats what i mean by it being system programs.

Hi all,

I'd call myself a decently tech-savvy person, but this one has me stumped. Any help would be appreciated!

Laptop: Dell Latitude D630 running Windows 7 Professional, SP1.

Problem: Despite the presence of available WiFi connections, the system states "There are no connections available." WiFi works when booting in Safe Mode with Networking. The laptop also connects fine when hard-wired.
Troubleshooting so far:

Verified Wi-Fi was turned on via switch on the side of the laptop.
Verified connection was enabled.
Updated drivers via Dell's website.
Ran Malware Bytes and cleaned off any malware.
Disabled all firewalls (only one - Windows Firewall).
Could not identify any concerns in services.msc or msconfig
What would be the next thing to check?

Thank you in advance,

I use Windows Explorer numerous times every day. I like to navigate to folders using the folders pane and click on items in main view. I sometimes drill down to folders in the main view to finish my navigation until I'm at the folder I wish to see.

All of the sudden I'm finding that when I click on a folder in the main view, a new Explorer window pops up. I did not change any of my preferences in this regard. I went into the Tools-->Folder Options and saw that "Open each folder in the same window" was still selected, as I'd left it long ago (a couple of years now). So, I switched the radio button to the "Open new folder" option, then switched it back to opening the folders in the same view. I clicked "Apply" and closed Explorer (I did this as a kind of "forced" reset). Then I opened Explorer again, and it's still not obeying this setting.

What's going on? Is this influenced by some other settings location I haven't looked at yet?
AFAIK, this started not long after I had uninstalled IE9 and IE8, rolling back to IE7, then installed IE9 again. I did this to resolve a peculiar issue with certain files marked as corrupt in SFC scannow (turns out it's a defect when going to IE9 from IE8). I do realize that Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer share a lot of the same files. But this is functionality exclusive to Windows Explorer. Really strange...

Hello,

I'm using Win 7 64 bit on a Vaio laptop that's less than a year old. Recently I'm having problems safely removing flash drives, portable drives and other devices. The SRH icon appears in the tray, but nothing happens when you click on it. Trying to eject from My Computer often doesn't work either, as the "eject" option is simply missing from the context menu.

I tried an idea I found on the MS forums, of creating a shortcut to the Safely Remove dialog, but that doesn't work either. (Shortcut to: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll) -- on at least one device, it claims the portable hard drive is not a removable drive.

Something is just hosed, somewhere. Any idea what it is, and how I can go about reinstalling it? Or a workaround?

Any help appreciated!

For many years, I've used the Generic / Text Only virtual printer driver to convert Web pages and other files to plain text with minimal formatting, but the last time I used it, the resulting file was peppered with unnecessary spaces, making it close to indecipherable when viewed in a text editor. Has some recent update changed the way this driver works (or, in my case, doesn't work)?

I've attached two files to illustrate the problem: filler.html contains a few paragraphs of boilerplate text, and filler.prn is the result I get from loading filler.html into Firefox and printing it to the Text Only "printer". (Both files were renamed to filler.*.txt to conform to this forum's limitations for uploaded files.) Note that the output file is more than ten times the size of the input file; if you examine it with a hex editor, you'll see that the increased size of the output is due to many sequences of a carriage return (without a linefeed) and several spaces being unnecessarily inserted in the output stream every few characters. I imagine if this were sent to a 1970s-era printer, the defects in the output would be invisible on the page, but since the whole point of the Text Only driver is to bypass any physical printer, I don't understand this change in behavior. Is there any way to prevent this and get back to the output I'm used to?

Ok, this is my third attempt, after re-booting and re-booting. This is my wife's Sony, abt. 3 years old, P4, WinXP HE, 512k ram. For a long time now it has been "temperamental". Among the latest is I can no longer "switch user" as normally. Clicking Start/log off/switch user does absolutely nothing now, it merely reverts to the former screen. Start/log off/log off does work, however.
And the shortcut that I used to use, the Win logo key +L now goes to "UNLOCK COMPUTER", a pop-up message that tells me the pc is in use and locked and only I (presumably as an administrator) with the proper password can now unlock it..
Problem: what the heck is the password?
We don't recall ever setting one.
Control+Alt+Delete does nothing here. Once at this screen, my only recourse is to reboot. ("Cancel" is greyed out. I think though that a few days ago it wasn't and I could cancel. Is that my faulty memory or is this thing getting worse?)

A side note: I did recently download and utilize a reg cleaner freeware "Regseeker" which I used to delete only several items it said were not used or broken links. (It also allegedly created a back-up before deletion, but darned if I can see where or how I can get them back!)
I also disabled, thanks to another tech "advice", several services via Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services. However, that techie claims nothing I disabled in his list should affect this.

I have not done a search there yet but it is located in the Windows Task folder system files . I will cut to the quick here and ask shouldn't I be able to import export that entry from a system Reg that has the entry to the system that does not have the entry and reboot and go back into the TaskScheduler to see if the entry is there now ? Of course I would first back up the system Reg or probably just do a complete back up first the continue .

My Maps app that came with Windows 10 no longer works in Aerial view. It's just blackness with my location dot in the middle. The blackness remains, even when I pan and zoom, but the road/normal layer works fine. I have the most current & up to date OS, Win 10 Home, 10586.36 & new Dell laptop.

Hi

I am running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on a Lenovo T510.

Every single time I do a Properties on My Computer, I get this pop up message that "Windows Control Panel has stopped working". Oddly, I just cancel that window and everything otherwise seems to work normally. But it happens every time and I can't figure out why.

Anyone else experience this?

Thanks

Hi

This usually happens when you dont remove the software completely, some process are attached to the Windows Explorer ... thats causing this.

Try using Autoruns and look under Explorer... and look for file that highlighted in yellow.. usually should say "File not Found". Uncheck or delete these and restart you computer.

Try these and let me know.

I'm getting this problem on a desktop running Windows 7 and on a laptop running Vista.

On the Win7 system (on which I'm typing this,) I'm getting the "Windows Explorer has stopped working" and "Windows Explorer is restarting" message pair every time I try to open any program from the desktop (such as MalwareBytes, Spybot, IrfanView, anything,) using right click and "Run As Administrator." They'll open and run normally if I do the ordinary left-click, or if I right-click and "Run As Admin" from the Start menu.

On the Vista laptop it's less consistent and seemingly not dependent on the right-click/Admin selection. On vacation I tried to download and run Verizon's VZAccessManager software - so as to use my ancient flip-phone as a tether - and couldn't get the system to detect the phone ("A wireless device was not detected!" is the message I would get.) After attempting multiple tweaks with the assistance of Verizon Tech Support via that phone, he came to the conclusion that I've got a problem with the system - something running on it that shouldn't be there.

On both systems there's also been a marked delay time in program initiation (when they start at all,) and running the usual malware/spyware detection programs such as MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot S&D, etc., comes up empty; the same with virus scans.

Though the coincidence suggests a connection and that it&#... Read more

I am using a Vista Home Premium 64 bit computer, and when I try to do this solution the computer tells me that I am unable to get access to the folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows.

Hi there,
Every time I turn on my computer the following message pops up shortly after windows loads: "Microsoft (C) Register Server has stopped working
A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available".

If I press the "close" button it disappears but I have been doing this now every time I turn on my laptop for months and it's getting a bit annoying. I have searched the net for a solution but with no luck. It seems that people have come accross this message before but not on startup. Any help would be much appreciated. I am running Vista Home Premium on a HP Pavillion dv2000. Cheers

Hello, this is my first post here on this forum.
About a week or two, I Downgraded my Computer (Dell l502x) from Windows 8 to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bits, installed the drivers from the Dell Page, and everything worked good, except for the Realtek HD Audio Driver Version 6.0.1.6312 (Recommended for my PC on Dell Website), This is the problem:
When I Start my computer, a message shows up with the following error: "Realtek HD Audio Manager has stopped working" and then, I Have to close the message and open Realtek HD Audio Manager again from the Control Panel. I Have already tried re-installing Windows and the error keeps appearing After I Install that driver, I Was wondering if maybe that version of the driver is faulty or something (It would be weird, since it's the one Dell recommends for this computer on the page)
I Have visited many forums, including this one looking for a fix to this issue, but I have not found a solution yet. So I was wondering if someone had this issue before and has a solution to this annoying problem.
any Help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Here's a picture of the issue im having when I start Windows 7 (It's in Spanish, but I think you will understand it)

A:"Realtek HD Audio Manager has stopped working" at Windows Startup

Try the R275 version on the RealTek site. Its the latest version and will work on your PC. When you run the Realtek installation the first thing it will do is uninstall the current version you have installed and then restart the PC. After the restart it will continue and install the R275 version. This is the version I have on all my PC's for both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8 64 bit.

Download the High Definition Audio Codec R.275 64 bit OS version.

Hello all. I hope this is the right place to post this support thread.

I am trying to install Open Office, but every time it is crashing during the installation process. This has happened the same way for three different .exes from their website - 4.1.1 en-GB, 4.0.1 en-GB, and 4.1.1 en-US.

I run the .exe, click next on Installation Preparation, select a location to unpack the files, and it extracts them. Once it reaches the Installation Wizard window, it works on 'Computing space requirements' for a second or two, and then crashes, saying "Windows(R) installer has stopped working".

I have looked around a couple of help threads, and tried a few things. I have been into regedit, but there was nothing except '(default)' under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions. I ran 'sfc /scannow' in the command prompt, but got "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations". Can anyone suggest a fix? Thank you

Hello,

This is very frustrating because like everyone who owns a PC I search for files and such, and I have tried many things to try and fix this, including:

-System restore
-Uninstalling windows updates
-Restarting computer
-Disabeling Index service
-Disabeling Windows search service

I have read of a solution to this problem that involves deleting files related to the index, but again I cannot do this because every time I look in search index it automaticaly closes.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated

Try to do system file check first:
Start-->cmd (run as administrator)-->sfc /scannow (space between sfc and /)

If it does not work
Try a scan disk.

If it doesn't work, you might want to do a Repair Install , it will preserve your data, user account, and system driver

Hi all,

Just got my Vista machine from Dell, 2-days ago. Data transfer went smooth, things were going great.

The I started getting "Intel Alert Server Stopped Working" message on every startup.

I think I broke it with trying to load Norton Password Manager, which is not compatible with Vista, so I had to do an uninstall. It was after this reboot, the message started appearing.

Choosing RESTORE from several checkpoints did not work.
Cleaning the Registry, as best I could, did not work.
Googled "Intel Alert Server" nothing useful, from what I saw.
I have since reloaded Norton Internet Security and Money since it appears the the live update on both were also broke.

Two questions:
1. How do I get fixed the "Intel Alert Server" message?
2. Can you recommend a specific Vista-compatible password manager package?

Thanks, Nickie

At some point in the last three months, a number of machines have stopped being able to add new USB devices.


These can be USB headsets, mass storage devices, anything. This includes devices which previously have installed fine and been working without issue.
In device manager, the devices show as "No drivers are installed for this device". However, if you click update drivers, and then manually select the Mass Storage (for example), you can install the device without a problem.
This has nothing to do with any vendor specific drivers - This is a Windows 7 issue.

Has anyone seen anything similar?
Is anyone aware of a recent update that may have had an impact on the USB stack or the operation of PnP?
Any other ideas?

I work remotely through an F5 VPN with RSA dual authentication.  Once inside the firewall and into the intranet, I run RDC and connect to my work computer.  This has worked without fail for a year, but a couple of days ago, even though I VPN in
with no trouble and have access to other features and locations within the company's intranet, when I click Connect on the RDC dialog box, I get "An Internal Error has Occurred."  If I try "edit" on the RDC, it shows my internal userID
and asks for my pwd.  Then it gives me the same Internal Error message.  It doesn't seem to find the computer through RDC even though ping and tracert do see it. I spent hours on the phone with company tech support and they assured me the remote
box is on and they were able to remote into it.  I can also ping and tracert the remote box while VPN is active - I just can't connect.  No changes have been made in any configuration since it was set up over a year ago.
I need ideas on how to debug this as it seems to be on my home client machine.  Are there any diagnostics or tools I can use to try to find the problem?  I need this ASAP to be able to work.

A friend at work experienced the same problem on his PC. Turns out he had a corrupt indexing file. You could try posting the details from Event Viewer, if that is possible. I wouldn't be able to help you interpreting them, but maybe some of the more experienced members could.

Have you tried disabling Windows Search? I did this on my friend's PC as a temporary measure . Got IE working, although searches were rather slow. It isn't a solution, but it could afford you a temporary -- albeit inconvenient -- workaround.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Stick around, though, and wait for inputs from the more knowledgeable members.
