Preferred Solution: Application Error: Abnormal Program Termination

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.)

Hi. Don't know if anyone can help me with this. (i hope i have posted this in the right forum, i am told this problem is probably a windows error) I have spoken with the software salesman/developer? and he said this is the first time this error has ever happened with their software. After trying all sorts of things like turning off antivirus, anti malware and even my graphics card it still wont work. I probably should mention that the Programs will both run in safemode but not in normal bootup?? I also tried stopping all startup programs in msconfig as an experiment but that didnt work. They told me it is probably a registry problem and advised i try a registry cleaner but I have read advice on this site in the past warning against using such things so i thought i would see if one of you might have a better idea???

The software I am trying to run is called exact roofing.
It runs on our other computer fine.

Please any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Answer:Abnormal Program termination error

You mention two programs, I see a link to only one.

What version of Exact Roofing are you trying to install?

The 3.0 Demo license is only good for 7 days.

I just downloaded/installed this program with no problems.

If you have a licensed probably need to take that up with the software developers.

Just putting the finishing touches on my sister's computer. Basically I doubled her RAM and upgraded her to Win2K, from WinME. Deleted some old software, fixed a couple of system errors. It had a trojan which was removed, some minor spyware/malware, but nothing major. However, keep getting two errors on re-boot:

1 - Abnorminal Program Termination...and it is generating from the Verizon Online/mad.exe folder...and also
2 - a Resolution assistant generating from the Dell Resolution Assistant/mad.exe folder

And, just recently, Windows Update keeps wanting me to download updates every time I reboot.

Followed the instructions on all scan software mentioned, and my log is below. If you could tell me if anything is left over that I should fix or a way to fix those two problems I would appreciate it.

I installed a shareware program (rmconverter) that wanted me to update my WMP runtime library from WMP8 to 9. The program didn't work, so I uninstalled it, but now another favorite app Zinf won't load, siting runtime errors - abnormal program termination.

Anybody got a clue how to fix this? I've tried reverting to older registries, no fix there. Thanks

Answer:C++ runtime error - Abnormal program termination

It is possible that they shared .dll for other files and those have been deleted. I would recommend uninstalling then reinstalling the Zinf app to see if it fixes this problem.

When you say "I've tried reverting to older registries, no fix there" do you mean a system restore?

Unfortunately some programs are not covered under a restore, so it may be lost anyhow.

I received an e-mail today with an attachment. Usually I have no problem. However, this time the message showed up and when I clicked on the attach icon it brought up the attachment and then, almost immediately, a big box showed up in the center. It said: Microsoft Visual C++Runtime Library at the top. Below that it said: Runtime Error! Program: C\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\WINWORD.EXE abnormal program termination with OK in a square under it.

and I then could not see the attachment.

I tried to get the attachment three times restarting my computer one of the times. I even sent myself an e-mail with an attachment from my commercial e-mail address and got the same problem.

I have purchased an HP officejet 5610 all-in-one, installed it, So far no problem. Scanned a picture using the icon on the desktop no problem from the administrator side..So i log off and switch users to test a scan on the other side... i don't recall if i scanned a picture from the icon on my desktop first or not, but i did decide to scan a picture by using the buttons on the printer itself. Rushing myself i pressed scan twice and it sent it to wordpad where it was saved too, mistake i think. now the scanned pic is no where to be found?? Now when i click on the icon on the users side it says Runtime Error blah blah blah, but the funny thing is (but not) is when i click on the icon on the Administrator side it's fine??? So maybe if i can locate this saved pic in my wordpad?? i will have gotten rid of this Runtime error?? Any suggestions are welcomed.. I know it's long but i had to try and explain my situation. Thanks again

Answer:Runtime Error (abnormal program termination)

Use the program supplied to scan. When you go to save choose save as,
This should give you an indication where the file was saved.

Answer:problem with error message abnormal program termination

Hello Maussie,

After reading your thread here:

At what point are you getting that message? What did Ewido fix for you, by any chance did you save those scan results?

Click Start>Run and type in sfc /scannow (there is a space between sfc and /) and let it scan for missing/corrupt files. You may need your Windows XP Install disc so have it handy.

Let's try an online scanner:

Please run an online scan at *Requires Internet Explorer.
Make sure you click the "Free Online Virus Scan" in the upper right hand corner of the page under the Free use Activescan header. We do NOT want the default spyXposer scan. Click on the Scan your PC button & a 'pop up' window shall appear. * ensure that your pop up blocker doesn't block it
Click On 'Scan Now'
Enter your e-mail address & click 'Scan Now' ...begins downloading Panda's ActiveX controls.- 8MB
Begin the scan by selecting My Computer
* You needn't remain online while it's doing the scan but you have to re-connect after it has finished to see the report.
If it finds any malware, it will offer you a report. Click on see report
Then click Save report
Post the contents of the report in your next reply along with a new HijackThis log.
* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

Answer:Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error POP UP (abnormal program termination)

Sounds like a malware problem.

Please run the steps below.

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT: Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus Removal

Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.

- Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
Also to get you started and to reduce the size of your HJT log. Do the following:

Also look in Add/Remove programs for Internet2 Optimizer and uninstall if found.
After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem, boot into normal mode and make sure you follow these directions:
- Download HijackThis 1.99.1

- Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

- Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file.

- Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

- Run HijackThis and save your log file.

- Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next message. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post).

Answer:abnormal program termination

Ensure that there are no real-time protection tools blocking it, including anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware etc.Try disabling all of these tools and check if it works then.also try going to the windows update site in internet explorer, which can be found at will check to see if you have the latest update software and then if you do you will be prompted to select an option for updating - either normal or custom i think it is (I'm on linux atm), select the bottom option.It will then find any updates, you will need to go through each category and check each box... then select review and install updates (its a text link) and you may be asked to install IE 7 or 8 if your a FF user simply click deny or no on the license agreement.Let me know how you get on after that.

Dear tech gods, please answer my humble prayer.

I've also gotten alerts saying that the following have crashed and need to close (and if I want to sent an error report to Dell):

It all started after my computer got the latest batch of updates (which included IE8). I was trying to connect a new modem. There was a Verizon disk involved as well.

Whenever I use my Word 2002 program, if I take more than just a few minutes on a document, it terminates and saves my doc as "normal". The only way to save my doc intact is to click "save" every few minutes before closing. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks!

Answer:Abnormal termination in Word

Sounds like you might have a macro virus (might be changing/affecting the Normal template). Check the download section of the site to make sure that you've got the latest updates/patches installed. There were some security issues addressed in the latest patches. Also, make sure you've got your antivirus software updated as well.

If you find that you have to update any of the above, make sure you restart your computer, then trash the Normal template (in the Office folder section), before launching the application program. That way, Office will create a new, "clean" Normal template.


Check your Preference settings. Look for AutoSave (backup feature, I think under the Save tab), because it may be set to run every few minutes. You can change this setting.

Hi to the forum, I am new to this site and wonder if anyone else has my problem and also advice how to fix it ? I have a new replacement HP computer with Vista Home premium and have installed a game called immortal cities Children of the Nile on it, and each time I try to run it I get the message in a box :- Microsoft visual c++ runtime library :- X runtime error, programme C:\programme files\immortal cities\cotn.exe. :- Abnormal programme termination . this is what I get every time I try to play the game and a spinning disc replaces the curser and I am unable to eject the play disc unless I reboot my machine. I know this game is compatable with Vista home premium as my previous HP computer ran it no problem, the only thing I can think of which is obvious is that the game needs Active X 9 to run the programme and my replacement machine (the previous one died) had Active X 10 pre-installed and I am not sure if this could create a problem I have tried unstalling the game 3 or 4 times and re-installing it to no effect can anyone help me please ?

Windows 98SE 1800 Duron 512 RAMFriend 80+ years old has made a success of his (lifelong) photography hobby with Photoshop 7 but uses Word (2000) only like a "typewriter." He has no modem or interest in the Internet.

Recently, popups informing me of either DCOM server launcher terminating unexpectedly or Plug and play terminating unexpectedly started to show up every 30 minutes - 1 hour on average. Soon after, my computer would reboot automatically. Now, my computer is significantly slower and often freezes, which I have to force shut down.
I have run several programs scanning for viruses. I have found several using Mbam and stopzilla, and successfully removed them. However, the problem persisted. I read on here about Mbar and tried to scan, but the computer shuts down before the scan could finish. Mbar did find 1 problem, but since the computer shuts down soon after it finds it, I am unable to fix it. It is rpcss.dll that is infected, but it is an important system process.
Also, there are several control panel options that I can not open. For example, I can not open the uninstall program window. When I click on it, nothing happens.
What can I do to fix these problems?

Ok, so I just bought a TV tuner card for my PC tonight, and got it all hooked up nicely and I really like it. The thing is, I used to have a TV in my room, and it really helped me go to sleep. I would just set the sleep timer on the TV to turn the TV off sometime in the middle of the night. I would like to kinda do the same thing with my TV on my PC. I'm trying to figure out a way to end the program at a scheduled time (say, 3:30AM), so that program is terminated, turning the sound off and letting the power saver monitor setting to kick on (turning the monitor off). Is there any way I can do this in XP, or is there a program or script that I can download or buy that would let me do this? Thanks for any insight.

This problem has been persisting for the past month. And I think I have narrowed it down to a software issue rather then a hardware issue. I can be connected to both LAN and WAN and both will give out.

Odd enough upon a fresh restart the problem is gone, for about 4+ hours and then no working. Another characteristic of the problem is that my connection whether wired or not seems to not recognize its been disconnected and does not show as local network only or completely disconnected, and web based applications such as MSN will stay "connected", except for the fact on other peoples computers I am disconnected and when I try send out going messages it comes up with a "this message hasnt been sent blah blah blah".

So yeah. Right now its more of an inconvenience then anything.

Hi all,

I'm having a rather strange issue that I haven't been able to trace, mostly because although the error itself makes sense to me, I have no idea what it means.

I'm using Windows XP pro, 32 bit with service pack 3 on an HP 8510W notebook. Recently I noticed that every time I closed a program, or a program exited properly, I received an error that looked something like this.

notepad.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x00bb1f3e" referenced memory at "0x00000004". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program

iexplore.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x03051f3e" referenced memory at "0x00000004". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program

taskmgr.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x009c1f3e" referenced memory at "0x00000004". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program
And so on, with everything from Reaper to firefox to Task Manager. I've also noticed two other things, which are:
A. this error never occurs if I manually end the task from within task manager or tskill, only when the program legitimately exits.
B. The first hex value always changes, but the second value, the memory being referenced, always stays the same.

Hey guys,
Today my pc started to go a bit wild lol. I was infected with a virus that was messing with my network and stopping my connection to the net. It was called nfra.exe i believe, i also came across another called pp1.exe. I did some research and eliminated these problems using HJT. Now i get a message saying that the remote procedure call has had an error and to save my work as it will restart my pc in 60 seconds. I did some browsing and found that this can be caused by MSBlast worm so tried the suggestions posted to get rid of it. I changed the action taken when the RPC fails so that my pc doesnt restart and i ran Symantics MSBlast worm removal tool but it said i did not have the worm.

My pc is being really slow, it wont connect to the internet, occasionally it causes my task bar to sorta blot out (like when a process fails over another window and leave a trail behind when u move it.).

At the moment i am on my notebook trying to find a solution. Since i cant connect to the internet i am using a USB memory stick to transfer files i need to my pc. This is proving to be difficult because it doesnt always let me connect it.

I hope someone can help me, it would be extremely appreciated.

This is a really weird thing that has started happening on my mum's pc.When you switch it on at the first screen - before it starts counting the RAM - it stops, beeps 4 times (I think 4 anyhow) and then displays the following message in red text:-System Hardware Abnormal - Press any key to continue.When you then press a key the pc starts as normal. I can not see anything else wrong with the PC and everything seems to be working ok.Does anyone know what could be causing this?

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. I've been doing the ones that worked, defrag analysis, disk clean up & CC Cleaner. Along with those maintenance tasks, I update all the definitions on the malware software. With the aforementioned error message problem with the lap top, I also have a problem with Adobe Reader (listed in another topic), that I can't uninstall it, without getting a 'Error 1402' message. Then the one last problem is the cursor jumping around at random times, when I am typing to either the forum or in a Word document. I mention these other issues because I am not sure they're not related. This is a DELL Inspiron 1520, Centrino (2007). I have another laptop, a 5150 Inspiron, with a P4 chip, and it absolutely has no issues. It hasn't even caught a virus. I don't use it as much now, but in the past I took it everywhere.

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.

Answer:Services.exe - Application Error. The Application Failed To Initialize (0xc0000005). seems to me (I may be misreading) but that system belonged to a unnamed 3d party, which had the operating license.

If I had found such system, the first thing I would have done is wipe it clean (because I don't like using someone else's data which they've decided to trash) and to give myself a good start at seeing if the system worked properly.

Then I would have done a clean install.

That's the only way that I know how to go from a series of a known good, working system.

Worst case scenario: The system is highly infected.

Best case scenario: The system has O/S or malware problems or a combination thereof.

OK, this is admittedly a strange one...

I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers). After a fatal software crash a couple of weeks ago, I'm in the process of recovery. Attempts to manually launch the EXE, result in a launch-time error stating that the ap is not compatible with my Windows 7 Pro (SP1). Note that I'm running on the same level of Windows that I was using prior to the crash/re-install. I have inhibited compatibility checking (Group Policy adjustment) only to incur the Win32 error.

I've been through the litany of utilities (registry) to correct this situation, and I KNOW that this ap runs just fine on Windows 7 (from pre-crash days). I am at my wits end trying to avoid this situation. I suspect that there is a registry setting difference (now versus pre-crash) about which I'm ignorant, so I'm open to any, and all suggestions.

To use an alternative time synchronizer is not an option...I'm anal about how my system looks, feels, and performs!! I've even tried running in XP mode (virtual machine) to no palatable result. Note that I don't have access to the program's source code, otherwise I could recompile!

There's got to be something that I'm missing.

Basically, when I switch on my laptop, both bttray.exe and GrooveMonitor display the exact same error(bar the application name in the title) - I have also tried to install AVG Free which comes up with the same error when trying to start.

The error is:

BTTray.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc150004). Click OK to terminate the application.

I am running Microsoft? Windows Vista? Ultimate 6.0.6001.1.1252.44.1033.18.3066.1940

cmd.exe application error - application was unable to start correctly (0x0000142). Click ok to close the application

Anyone know why it happened?

I got this error when I tried to restart to install an update. However, in windows update, it showed I had nothing to update. There was the little yellow shield by the shut down button to indicate it was installing an update when I would shutdown.

I rebooted fine, and CMD works fine. Is it possible windows thought it had to install something, and the installer had already installed the update (I went onto windows update earlier myself to install the windows and silverlight updates) and it bugged because maybe it had to use cmd to execute the update or something?

Answer:cmd.exe application error - application was unable to start correctly

It seems to be happening again, but only when I shutdown when explorer is open. I tried and tested his multiple times. It has only happened after the new silverlight update and kb 30247777 (sorry if the number is wrong) update.

There are two different repair options, one is a manual repair and the other is automatic. If you get the wrong one, start over.Back up your data before you do this, just in case something goes wrong. (probably won't go wrong)
