Flash MFC application is not responding

Question: Flash MFC application is not responding

I have a G200 gps which I purchased from wikango (based in France)and which I now find does not have a support service.
The device was ok when I used win 7 but not on 10
When I connect the device om my PC it says device not connected,so I tried to download the emergency update to save on my PC so I can update using that file manually,but when I try to download the emergency update software,I get the message Flash MFC application is not responding .
My technical knowledge is as a beginner. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Preferred Solution: Flash MFC application is not responding

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a custom built PC (about 3 months ago) running Windows 8.1 Pro with Gen 5 Intel chip (almost top of the line) with 32Gb and an SSD drive. I have one application that frequently, but not always, goes into a Not Responding mode and only in a very specific circumstance. Allow me to explain:

The system was built specifically for trading and there are very few other applications installed, purposely to keep it as clean as possible. Defender is the AV and Windows is kept up to date with maintenance, within reason. One of these applications almost always fails when it attempts to shutdown which it does according to a set time. Because it is an auto trading application there is an interface to a broker site when it gets streaming stock data and will also open and close trades. I am not yet using the latter capabilities as I am only doing simulation trading. Every time the application goes NR it has always been in the interface to the brokers data feed and always at shut down time. The application has a "watchdog" service that starts and stops the main application. I've varied the shut down times and the NR moves with it.

The software vendor states that I am the only one of "thousands" of users having this problem therefore it must be in my PC. Essentially he is not working on finding a solution because of limited resources and because I supposedly am the only one having this problem. He has offered to return my license fee but it's no...

Hello people, my problem is something that happens at quite random moments, i've been having it for a while now.
What happens is that at random times every application on my PC just stops responding(even some games), sometimes i'm still able to scroll in my browser but i cant click anything.
My mouse still functions but whatever i click on stops responding. after about 5-15 seconds it stops and everything works like normal again.

I cannot figure out what is causing it, i thought it was a cooling problem so i bought a new cooler and case for my PC and CPU, nothing changed.
I thought i was my Ram so i bought 8 gig more, nothing changed.
I've also reinstalled windows 2 times but it did not fix it. Anyone experience this before?

Sooo..I have reached the limits of my troubleshooting abilities. The following sequence happened to my PC:
1.) A month ago some programs (especially browsers) would go unresponsive (no white-screen or message). It seemed like it was just giving very long delays, but in the end, it stopped completely. If taskmanager was started or the start menu was used, after the first few clicks, these, too would stop to respond, needing a reset. A thing of note is that as soon as the first symtoms appear, the network connection breaks down.
2.) Ghosting the PC did fix the issue for around a month
3.) The issue came back, but now it degenerated quickly into white windows and the application not responding messages.
4.) I bit the bullet and started a completely new install. However after the first boot, with no drivers installed, no programs, nothing, the issues started to appear. I also noticed that the disc access was really slow in the "My computer" window.
Things of note:
- I have switched network access hardware in the time (first onboard LAN, then USB-wifi, now PCI-wifi)
- The issues seem to have nothing to do with CPU pressure or temperature. Actually demanding games run just fine.
- I did disc checks on the SSD the system runs and the other HDD where I have most of the data/programs stored. No issues detected
- I did the common malware searches. No threats detected
- I ran  a RAM check, with MemTest86 no issues found
Thanks in advance

I am desperately trying to track down some frequently repeating errors without having to do a complete repair install since the present installation is only about 5 months old.

Win 7 Prof 64 bit SP1 up to date. Cable modem bought myself Motorola Surfboard newest model. Apple Extreme router. I frequently use DNS other than those provided by my ISP for obvious reasons

Run Eset NOD and MBam as well as windows firewall. I also have five hard drives on the system all of which test ok. Two SSDs and three WD black caviars.

I frequently get a "not responding" in Outlook 2010 and I cannot track down something I am specifically doing when it happens. Here is the error message which I fear I don't know enough to interpret in a meaningful way. Hoping someone can help me do this.

I am extremely frustrated with my g510 laptop- so frustrated that I am about to go spend money on a new laptop when then one is only 10 months old. Computer boots fine. I start to use it. Doesn't matter what application I am running I get a message box titled Microsoft Windows: Application Not you want to end the process.  Doesn't matter what I hit the computer will then not respond.   Frustrated with what was going I tried several things...eventually I gave up and just reset the laptop completely to factory and then downloaded the few programs I use and am STILL getting this message.   I run Mcaffe Internet Security and the "few programs I use" are Adobe CC for Photographers, Google Chrome and Yahoo Messenger. Anyone have any ideas or do I have a $700 boat anchor?

I have been having problems with my computer where it completely freezes up, and I can do absolutely nothing cause the computer will not respond. I will then get an error that says 'Microsoft Windows application is not responding. The program may respond again if you wait. Do you want to end this process?' I cannot open the task manager either. Then there are other times where my computer isn't acting right so I will try to restart, and the computer will go to the turquoise screen you see when the computer is shutting down, but the computer will not restart. I have been forced to shut down my computer through the power button at times which I know I shouldn't be doing, but it is the only way to be able to restart my computer, and to start using it again when Windows stops responding. When I shut down using the power button, the screen doesn't go black, but becomes the same color as whatever was on the screen before powering off. 
I have performed windows 7 repair installs on 2 separate occasions because I don't know how to set up everything I need to set up after a fresh install. I always had a friend who would do that for me, but no longer do. I have checked my c drive for errors, but that hasn't fixed the problem. I've tried the repair your computer option while booting up, but that never finishes. I know a fresh install will be recommended, but I will not do that. Hopefully there is another solution.

I was playing a game just the other day when all of a sudden the FPS drops to half what it usually plays comfortably at. I restarted the computer and this did not solve the problem. In addition to this (I'm not sure if this is coincidence or a linked issue, i assume it is linked) the computer started to become unresponsive and issuing the message while just using basic Windows functions:


Microsoft Windows
The Application is not responding. The program may respond if you wait. Do you want to end the process?

Ctrl Alt Del only becomes available once the system has started responding again, the mouse functions are still available, but obviously there is nothing to click on except End Process on the alert window.

Like I mentioned above, this happens during basic windows functions such as using the windows explorer, google chrome, clicking on the task bar or skype. It doesn't seem to be picky.

I have tried the following things:
BIOS flash update.
Malware/Virus search.
Disabling Virus programs.
Registry and Drive de-fragmentation.
Repair install of windows,
Fresh install of windows on two seperate HDD's in the same machine.
Upgrade install of windows,
Reducing/increasing the RAM, shuffling the RAM into different slots.

This is what it tells me but, when I use task manager, there is not foxfire running. I have restarted my computer, and still no luck. Not sure what is going on. I have looked all over the tasks and don't see foxfire running. So I can't shut it down. Even turning off the computer and turning it back on didn't work, uninstalled foxfire again. Same problem. Help, Thanks Bunny

Answer:foxfire not responding close application

Ok, I fixed it. I am leaving this up incase anyone else has the same problems. I installed internet explore 7 pro addon and this is when this all started. I went in and deleted all the user profiles for foxfire, and this solved my problems. So just wanted to let you know.

Hi all

I have had Vista for over two years now and two things that are driving me to despair are: i) the 'Wheel of Death' and ii) Not Responding

The Wheel of Death, as I call it, is infuriating be beyond distraction. You know what I mean, that perishing orbiting blue wheel. It comes on for no apparent reason and just locks up the system - can anyone tell me what the use is of this annoying little ....? Worse than the old egg timer.

"Application" Not Responding. The screen just mists up and often works in conjunction with i) above. Once again, no reason is given. I know with AOL a message pops up to let me know that there is a fault and will let me know what the error is and what the solution is to cure it, but never, ever has! Sometimes my whole system locks up and have to reboot..

If a reason is given, I might be able to forgive Vista. I have tried just about everything to cure it - increasing RAM. defrag, disk clean up. Clearing Temp files and Temp Internet files, shutting down other programs running in the background. I think I have tried just about everything, but the one thing I haven't discovered and tried yet, must be the one thing someone else knows about and hasn't passed on to me yet.

Bill Gates! Try this computer of mine for a while and it'll soon wipe the smile off your face, especially when you are in the middle of something important or complicated, and the Wheel of Death and a Wipeout happens and you have to start all over again.

Answer:I can't save or open any file in any application without it saying 'Not responding'.

Do you know when this problem began? Try a System Restore to a point in time BEFORE the problem began. Here's the procedure: Be sure to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points. If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two. NOTE: You will have to re-install any software and updates you installed and uninstall any software you removed between now and the restore point, but you can use Windows Update for the updates.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Thank you to any/all for taking the time to look this over and help out.
so what I have been having a problem is with the past couple days now is that all my applications suddenly decide to "hang" or "Not Respond". At first I thought it was just my Mozilla Firefox, so I ran CC cleaner but it still persisted. I soon noticed that it was happening in Chrome too along with windows explorer, even going through windows folder, and all applications.

Solutions I tried so far:
- Used PC Optimizer to fix registries
- Ran virus scan (Malwarebytes and Avast)
- Defragmented hard drive
- Updated video card
- Updated Windows
- Removed some startup programs

So far nothing has worked and it has become really frustrating. I know its most likely not a hardware issue, I've been running on it for a long time and my specs are as listed:
- Core i5 2500k @3.6GHz
- 12GB RAM
- Crossfire 6870's
- 1TB + 500GB Internals
- Gigabyte Z68X Motherboard
- TX850 Watt PSU

Can anyone help me out? I'd prefer not to do an entire reboot, I feel as if that would be a last resort.

Answer:Windows 7 - All Application suddenly hangs/(Not Responding)

In my opinion PC Optimizer or other programs like it are not a good thing to use on Windows 7. Windows 7 doesn't want or need such programs.
If it was my computer I would completely remove it and select a restore point before it was installed and used. Then see how things work. Remember that their might be more than one problem.

My USB 8GB Flash Drive is not working. Windows will not allow me to even format it. It will not let me move/delete files, or run scandisk or disk defragmenter. Any advice?


Answer:USB Flash Drive Not Responding

First, make sure you look it over and see if there is a locking switch that it is not moved to the lock position.

If it was unlocked, you could fire up a live linux CD, Knoppix and see if that can see the flash drive and allow you to format it. if you get the site in German, just click on the UK/US flag to switch to English.

So might might be able to recover the files from the trashed flash drive and put them on another stick before you try and format.

Running Vista HP and have had problems ( seems worse recently... maybe from the later versions of flash player! ) with message "Internet Explorer has stopped responding". Always happens at the initial "first" attempt to open IE7. Never happens when in use. Stopping Internet Explorer in task manager then restarting and it's fine. Have disabled flash player in "IE7 tools and manage add ons" and the problem appears to go away... just that to view anything that needs flash and I have to go back and tick re enable. Flash player is the latest version and the Adobe version test says it is the most up to date for my PC. Any ideas... please don't say use Firefox... this should all work with IE7. Have BT yahoo mail as home page and it is when initially opening this that it freezes, if it's going to do it. Happens I guess 50% of the time.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C650-17Z laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I came across a problem today with the computer taking 2-3 minutes on the "Starting Windows" boot screen alone, but since it has finally gotten past that process applications are taking absolutely ages to load up, and stop responding when they finally do load up.

I attempted a Startup Repair and Memory Diagnostic - the Memory Diagnostic came out fine, but the Startup Repair explained that this could be a problem with a recently installed driver.

I recently uninstalled some MSXML and SQL Server bits and bobs which I thought were unnecessary - could this be the cause of the problem?


Answer:Computer booting slowly and stopping responding upon application open

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums, Robert.

The quickest way to find out would be a sytem restore to a point before you uninstalled the software you mention.

SQL Server is needed for things like Visual Studio and Microsoft Office Outlook Business Contact Manager so unless you use these applications there shouldn't be a problem if you uninstall it.

That said, if your computer is running OK, it's best to leave things as they are, in my view.

Hello, Thank you for spending your time assisting me with my problem.
When I open chrome and go to Yahoo, Gmail or Youtube, I get a yellow banner saying that Shockware Flash has stopped responding.
I have reinstalled Chrome, reinstalled flash, verified in chrome://plugins there is only one Flash entry, disabled all other plugins and tested, there are no conflicts in chrome://conflicts. I have done multiple Scans with Kaspersky, Spybot, Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner. All found items have been deleted, but it does not fix the problem.
The only way I can get Flash to work is be setting Chrome's settings to default, then Flash will work for a while, sometime it will stop responding within minutes, other times when I close Chrome and reopen it. This problem is not happening in Firefox.
This has started to happen after I allowed SearchLock to be installed, I was duped and thought it was part of Chrome. I have since then deleted it (I believe), by hitting the trash button in Chrome Extension. The only other extension I see running are from Kaspersky.
Any ideas on my next step, and whether this is an infection or not?
Thank you.

Answer:Shockwave / Flash not responding in Chrome

Hello -
SearchLock seem to be the latest in with Chrome when you add Flash Extensions
This is a basic removal for SherLock and many similar evtensions
Click the Chrome menu button on the Google Chrome browser
Select Tools > Extensions.

Look for any unfamiliar extensions like SearchLock and get rid of them by clicking on the Recycle Bin.
Always recheck your Start Pages are correct, and Reset them if not
If you have no luck, Uninstall Chrome browser and reinstall it, but read the Add-ons offered with extensions.
Many have extras included and you can always refuse them.
See how that goes -
EDIT - It is a "pushy extra" that is almost an infection, as it is generally unwanted.

Answer:Satellite A200-1MD - Flash Card not responding


Hmm... It seems that the problem is related to Toshiba Flash Cards they appear if you press a FN key... With other words they control the FN key function.

You should check the Toshiba website. There you can find this tool and you should try to reinstall it. So remove the current version, restart the notebook and install newest version of Flash Cards Support Utility.

Shockwave flash my be busy or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now or can continue to see if it plug will work. This comes up a lot. Is there anything I can do. Thank You all

Answer:Shockwave flash my be busy or it may have stopped responding

Stop it and then refresh the page you were on which will reload Flash.If you have many browser windows or tabs open, try closing some of them, especially ones which have videos or video ads.When you get a chance, download the newest version of Adobe Flash Player and install it. This will be the long term fix, especially if you see the issue repeat.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Everytime I close down World of Warcraft something pops up in the top left hand corner (looks like it should be a window but only top bar showing) which reads 'Toshiba Flash Card (Not Responding)'. What can I do to stop this from happening?

Im pretty sure it pops up throughout the game as well as I hear a ding.

I have a Equium A100-338.

Thanks for any help!

Answer:Equium A100-338 - Flash Card not Responding


a solution can be disabling the flash card service if you don?t need your flash drive.

You can disable it just by following these steps:

- Go into Start -> settings -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services

- Make a right click on "Smart Card" and left-click on "Properties"

- In the window which pop?s up you have to stop the service and disable it with choosing "Disabled" at the option "Startup Type"

After that your flashdrive service is disabled and you won?t get that annoying errormessage anymore.

So the title pretty much says it all. The keyboard works fine, its brand new and the only time I have any problems is while attempting to play a flash based game on the internet.
I have already tried clicking the game box, this is not the problem.
I am using Google chrome and have windows 7 ultimate edition.
I think a recent update I received is causing the problem since it was working fine before and just started doing this.

If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so very much

I have a problem with the flash cards not responding on my Equium A100-27 Notebook.
It's been gradually getting worse over several months, during which time Windows would notify me that "Toshiba Flash Cards Not Responding" and invite me to search for a solution and close the programme.

This always resolved the problem, but recently not only do the flash cards not work so that I cannot, for example turn the touchpad on or off, but Windows is no longer notifying me and searching for a solution.
The problem appears to be entirely circular, because Microsoft don't want to know if you bought your computer with operating system already installed (Why? Perhaps they can't afford proper customer support!) and Toshiba offer no means at all of communicating with them directly, other than at prohibitive cost.

Am I the only person in the world to conclude that this appalling lack of any meaningful customer support is clearly indicative of a "Sod you - I'm only interested in sales and profit" attitude and is there any kind soul out there who can offer the possibility of a solution?

Answer:Equium A100-27 - Flash cards not responding

HI lacourtade,

First of all keep cool!!!
Why you get worked up over that? Such things can happen, nobody and no notebook is perfect. Furthermore you have tried nothing as yet and I think your problem can be solved in few minutes so listen up:

The Flash Cards that you mean are a part of Value Added Package. So you should try to reinstall this Toshiba tool and you can download the latest version here: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Before you install the latest version, remove the old one firstly. Then restart the notebook and install the version that you have downloaded.

Good luck! :)

Hi everyone, sorry for my english,i met a big problem with my brand new Thinkpad Edge E320 1298-37G. I used ThinkVantage tools to update some drivers and also to install the bios flash utility.After installing this utility it began to flash my bios with a new one (flash in windows environnement). When it finished, windows closed for restarting but the notebook never restarted.The led on the "i" of thinkpad switch on and off  and also the leds of the lan port. I heard the cpu cooler starting when the led on the "i" goes on and stopping when the led goes off.I have nothing on the screen, no boot at all. How can i fix this?Is there any way to re-install the bios or make some kind of reset? Thanks for the help.

Hi folks, I am just installing the things I want on the new computer and today I wanted to add the Flash player. As (I think) you can see, I have a HP z800, windows 7 64 bit. I also have an ssd as the C:\ drive.

On Firefox I installed Flash and in Firefox I have Flash set to ask to be allowed to run, just as I did on the computer I am moving from (Vista). However, two things seem to be happening now; 1) Flash always runs when a site calls it, it doesn't ask. I checked the Firefox plugin setting and it is set to ask. 2) The screen constantly flashes the box that says something is busy. (I used to see this occasionally on the Vista machine, but on this one the box goes on and off so fast I can't read it.) I did manage to position the mouse over the "stop plugin" button and click that when the box flashed up, but this didn't help. I don't remember that clicking this box ever helped on the Vista machine either.

I think, because Flash is installed on that fast drive, maybe it is just not designed for this and it just isn't going to work?

So far today I have uninstalled Flash twice, using the Adobe uninstaller (thanks for this advice from another post!) and re-installed it.


Since I am new to this computer, is this something that has been happening for a long time, or is everyone having this problem lately?

Does this have anything to do with Flash being on the SSD, and is there anything I can do about this?

What can I do?

Thank you!

dear community,

perhaps this is not the cause at all, perhaps i have malware and will eventually post in that area, but i think the problem is caused by my outdated operating system and inability to update things... -

i am stuck using windows vista and, chrome will not accept any more updates, and the _flash_ chrome is running, is old, and now...

any time i run flash in chrome (for example, to earn a bit of spare money i use two different programs, one plays videos and the other streams music...),

things will appear to stop responding - for example if i try to go to a web page, the page will stay loading forever -

and then if i try to CLOSE chrome, my computer's TOOLBAR WILL STOP RESPONDING (the desktop icons though will still be responsive, for example if i mouse over them...),


(i even found a way to make shortcuts to the processes of task manager, and even a shortcut to the command to restart, and those - work at other times, but do not work once this happens)

and then the only way to get out is to push my computer's power button... your expert opinions, does this sound like a malware issue (and then i'll head over to that area and, run allllllll the diagnostics...),

or does it sound like a result of having to run such outdated chrome/flash? (and if so, do you know of any way to possibly fix it?)

thanks so much for taking the time to read my issue!!!

At the moment we are running an online virtual world game with around 1500 simultaneous users in the evening and around 1200 new users a day. Unique logins are around 13000. They are mostly kids between 8 and 12 years old. Currently we are having problems with files not being cached in the browsers of our clients. We tried all kinds of different headers but to no result. This results in heavy bandwidth usage of our server giving us high costs. Since most of our users use Internet Explorer we don't want to rule out IE specific problems (if any exist). Last month we moved around 6000 gigs.

The situation is as follows:

We have 34mb worth of files ( SWF's and some MP3's) of which the main SWF file is the largest (8mb). This file loads all the other files depending on need. We are not using any get or post parameters on url's to load these files and the files are 100% static. We are not using any expiry dates or times. The only thing we basically use is if-modified-since in our headers. We don't do any frequent updates of our content.

Yet hardly anything seems to stay in the cache, with our own tests, it seems fine for a couple of hours but after a longer time ( maybe 24h) it seems to disappear from the cache without any serious browsing or downloading. Although we don't have hard evidence for it we don't think it is the cache of our client overflowing as it would require a lot of browsing and downloading for that to happen.

"Windows Explorer has experienced a problem and needs to close"

Extremely annoying.

Answer:Explorer/Flash Application Error. Please Help.

Hi lustmyeyes

Did you resolve your error?

I imagine you'd be fine if you move the flash installer & it's files to another disk -- likely some other file on your current disk has a file-extension that is assigned to Explorer, which can't run it and throws up the error.

Another tactic would be to disable Autorun on the CD/DVD drive temporarily.

So far, to remedy this problem, I have tried:

1) Completely uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Adobe Flash Player.
2) Using CCleaner and Ashampoo to see if it was some kind of registry/program issue or whatever that could be sorted out.
3) Virus scan with Norton AV 2010 and Malwarebytes. Removed any infected items, but the problem still persists. I don't believe it's a virus or spyware because I scan regularly and it doesn't seem to affect the issue I've been having.

So my question is: is there anything I could do that I haven't done yet to try and fix... Read more

Hey there!
I?m experiencing a BSOD everytime any kind of Flash is needed (e.g. watching Youtube videos, playing flashgames on facebook). It?s the same pattern over and over again: The Application works for about 10 minutes, then the BSOD appears. Games are not affected, Skyrim and Rage are running perfectly.

My system:
Windows 7 Professional 64bit Full Retail, installed 4 Weeks ago.
ASUS P7P55D Mainboard
Intel i5 750
Radeon HD 6950 2GB (Catalyst 11.11c)
Samsung HDD 1 TB
4 GB A.Data Ram, 1333

Caused by driver "dxgmms1.sys"
Caused by adress "dxgmms1.sys+1011b"
Crashadress: "ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40"
What I tried until now:
I combed the desert for solutions and advice. So I reinstalled my graphics drivers, checked my RAM with Memtest86, scanned my HDD for erros, disabled one unneeded sound driver, reinstalled flash player and plugins, updated my browser to Nightfly (64bit version of Firefox) and drank coffee...a lot of coffee But nothing except the coffee helped, no errors were found and the BSOD still is reproductable.

So what the hell can I try now? Can anyone of you help? ^^

I don't know if any of you are aware of the website called, It's an interactive flash site that you can order on cd-rom if you like it that much. The problem is, I ordered the cd, but when I run the program, my mouse pointer sticks to the center of the screen, when I try to move it, the pointer moves so far, then quickly goes back to the center, which means i'm unable to get to the menu's or anything, making the whole thing useless.

Tried the Repair Registry Software that claims it will solve this problem. It didn't help.

Tried loading older versions of Flash Player to no success. Get the same prompt.
I'm at a loss as to what needs to be done. Can anyone provide suggestions?



Answer:Solved: Flash Player - iexplore - Application Error

When you say 'load', do you mean that you are attempting to install or upgrade the Flash plugin for IE? Assuming the Adobe site works for you, try this version tester to see what, if any, version you currently have; (the latest is 10,0,32.18).

Newer versions of Flash should be uninstalled with the special Adobe uninstaller, if you didn't use it, try it now in case your problem has something to do with leftover components of old versions of Flash; Note that if you have other browsers installed, the uninstaller will remove their Flash plugin as well and you will need to replace it.

If the uninstaller doesn't help, you could try following the advice in this Adobe Troubleshooter; Hopefully, the Registry 'repair' tool you ran hasn't done any permanent damage. Those things rarely do any good!

What does someone need to know about installing something like Skype onto a usb flash drive as a portable application? There is a website which shows a listing for Skype. Some things seem unclear. One can install to a usb flash drive, what I may like to do. Would one download the installer for the portable Skype to the computer or to the flash drive itself? When the installer is then run and the destination for the install is picked, as to the usb flash drive, does the computer itself have registry entries and other files put into Windows System/System32 folder, which would not be on the usb flash drive? Then how are the flash drive and the computer from which the installation was made, be coordinated or associated after installation? What then should happen if later one wishes to update or upgrade to a higher version the portable Skype? Need to go back to the same computer and the same flash drive and run an update or upgrade installer? What about uninstalling?

If instead of an installer, the portable application were to be merely in zipped form needing to only be unpacked onto the flash drive, then this would appear simple; but one seems to be directed to download and INSTALLER, not a zipped package.

Hello so basically I'm still trying to solve this problem when I'm just web browsing or doing something such as watching videos, I will notice my laptop screen will flash randomly so when I look into Event viewer I noticed the application Experience is causing it.

I've done some searching and it seems that both KeNotify.exe (Toshiba/Utilities) and TCrdMain.exe (Toshiba/Flashcards) are responsible for managing the Fn keys.

Could anyone please explain what each does separately, and what functionality will I loose if I remove them from startup?

Thanks a lot!

Answer:What does the Toshiba Flash Cards / KeNotify Application controls?


From my knowledge the Flash Cards (visual FN button row at the top of the screen) appears pressing if one of the FN + F1-F9 key combination would be pressed.
If you remove both tools, I assume that this visual menu would not appear anymore and you will lose the FN button functionality.

But you can test this just for testing proposes without deleting both entries.
In search type msconfig. In msconfig choose Startup tab and here uncheck both exe files. Save the changes and reboot the unit.

If you want to get back these processes, access the Startup tab again and enable both processes once again.

Is this the test you ran to check your version of Adobe Flash?; If not, run this and see if it confirms your version as Alternatively, you could try the test at this site (which is optimized for IE) to see if it confirms that you have the various plugins etc;

Assuming the tests are positive, there is one more thing you could do, which is to try installing a 'standalone' version of Flash;

I'm not sure if this is the place to put this thread, but I couldn't figure out where else it goes.

For a while, my Thinkpad T500 running Win10 has been acting up. Sometimes when prompted to open a file in a software, when you click the drop down menu (where you can change which file type you are looking for) everything will be unresponsive for a second before flashing back to how it was. That was't a very good explanation, but it's kind of hard to describe. I ran my laptop without my battery (using an adapter) and it worker better, so I know that my battery is a problem. But sometimes when I open an application, it will open, flash and flicker the Not Responding in the top bar next to the name of the program, and then it will open successfully. There's also times when my mouse will vigorously flicker between the busy icon and the normal icon.

I've also been having a problem with the battery icon disappearing from the dock after starting my computer. Each time I boot up the laptop I have to go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Batteries > Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and disable it then re-enable it.

I'm not sure which of these is a hardware problem and which are software problems, but I'm hoping someone could help me.

Whenever it is time to update Adobe Flash on my desktop I get this error message during the update process. I have to uninstall the program and then reinstall it directly through Firefox to get it to update. My laptop, which runs an Nvidia card, doesn't have this problem.

Is this normal system behavior? Is there a way to fix this so that the updates work the way they are supposed to? I have spent a lot of time researching the problem before stumbling onto this solution. But it should not be so hard to update Flash.

Answer:Adobe flash update: "unable to load application configuration"

The question in my mind is which version of the Flash installer the error is coming from. By that I mean, is it attempting to update Flash in Firefox or Internet Explorer? So, open this page in both Firefox and IE:

Many people forget to update Flash for IE, and if that version is borked up then it may be giving you the error you're getting and whatever you do with the Firefox version doesn't matter.

As a side note, are you using or have ever attempted to use Flash on 64-bit versions of either Firefox or IE? You probably haven't, but I'm just checking.

Just wondering if you guys can give me a hand with this issue.

Ever since the latest windows 7 update I get this window message "application not responding...". It's upon start up and it basically freezes the computer so I have to manually restart it. CRTL-ALT-DEL doesn't work. If I get into the task manager right away I can disable a bunch of processes and make it so it doesn't crash. Just by looking at stuff I figured out that I can disable the Application Experience in msconfig. This let the CPU boot up and function perfectly except I can't print.

I tried uninstalling my lexmark x4550 and reinstalling but the application error came back. I just want to be able to connect to the printer again and not have my wife bug me bc the computer keeps freezing. I'm probably below a novice on computer trouble shooting so be gentle.

thanks in advance

Answer:"application not responding..."

My first step would be to go to lexmark's website and find the latest drivers for you product there.

I just went and looked and I think I see your problem, there are no windows 7 drivers for the product which must mean you are using vista drivers in compatibility mode.
It still wouldn't hurt to go here

and at least see that you have the last vista driver that was released.

Hi everybody, will appreciate if any of you could give
me some feedback on the following. Thanks!

Many a time when I clicked on certain function/button of an
application the "Not Responding" message would sometimes
appear next to the title of the application in the title bar (at
the of the screen).

And most of the times I would not be able to even close the
application. Instead, I would need to launch the Task Manager
and end that particular application under "Processes" tab there.

What could be the cause, any idea?


Answer:Application "Not Responding"

Most of the time it is 1 of 2 things. 1 the applications is working on the proccessing of the action requested but due to certain factors like to many apps running or what not it is taking a long time. 2 the application just crashed.

If its the frist 1 where the app is just taking a long time for it to work then just let it sit for a minute and see if it works itself out. If after a coupel minutes nothing changes then its option 2. The application crashed. That could be a laundry list of reasons why for that.

We have IE 6. Say a user goes to The ad on the right is a Flash object. Some of our users will see that object flickering when scrolling up or down on the page or when hovering their mouse over it. It's quite annoying. Almost all users are running Adobe Flash Player 9, but I think I've seen this happen on systems with Macromedia Flash Player 8 as well. Other systems don't have the problem. I've seen this happen on one system and not another while both seemed to have the same Flash objects installed.

Uninstalling all Flash players using Adobe's prescribed Flash Player uninstall tool seems to work at first, but users later complain again. Note that they just about always end up installing Flash Player 9 again, because sites ask for it. I don't believe I've seen this on any XP systems at all, including my own, but most of our users have Win2K.

Does anybody know why this happens or how to permanently fix it?


Answer:Ie 6 - Flash Objects Flickering - Using Adobe Flash Player 9 Activex R28 (shockwave Flash Object V.

More info: Adobe Flash Player 9, Macromedia Flash Player 8, and Macromedia Flash Player 10 all produce the same result--Flash objects that flicker when you put your mouse over any part of them. Moving Flash objects will flicker constantly while moving and stop flickering when the animation is done. SWF files (at least the one at work without a problem when using Adobe Flash Player 9.

If I don't have Adobe Flash Player 9 installed, the Win2K machines prompt me to install them for almost any site that uses Flash (I guess most recent Flash objects cannot be viewed with the older Macromedia Flash Players).

Any suggestions?

2) Are they connecting wirelessly? Have they try connecting wired and see if it makes a difference.

3) I haven't used Outlook 2K in a long time, but I remember there being a setting about how to behave when using a slow connection. Something like tools, send receive, send receive settings.

STOP: c oooo 145 {application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0x 0000005). Click OK to terminate application. The above message is what I receive, when I run "error check". It was advised from the Microsoft website that I ran ERROR CHECK, along with "disk cleanup" & "defrag" analysis, to see if the machine needs to be defragged.I went along with the advised procedures by Microsoft, because it was said that the computer would run faster.

Answer:STOP: c oooo 145 {application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0x 0000005).

What steps are you taking to run the check?

That error seems to indicate a hard drive problem, which is why it was suggested to run chkdsk /r.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system. The command should execute, before booting into XP.
