Preferred Solution: Application Error after I close any program?

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.)

Answer: Application Error after I close any program?

Well I get the exact same error for IE, Msn, Winamp, everything. The number just changes around a bit. I know for sure this is some kind of virus/adware, but havent been able to find a tool that fixes it.

java.lang.NullPointerException: null pData

When I click "ok" it freezes up. ctrl alt del just closes out ALL browser windows.

Ok I get this error whenever I close any application. Here's an example:

They are not all XPCOM errors. Like when I load EQ2 it updates and when the update window closes I get a error, then when I log in the log in window closes and a error pops up. Same thing happens EVERY fricken time I close an application..
Gah this is so annoying. Anybody have any idea what it could be? Someone told me it was Firefox causing the problems but I call BS on that.
Anywho any help at all would be appreciated...ALOT!!

Edit: Its always says "The instructions at*this always changes* referenced memory at *0x00000000* (that number is always the same) The Memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program.
 

Answer:Error when I close any application!

First, check out my signature and install those programs, update them, and scan with them.

Second, Windows XP I presume? Do you have all of the windows updates? Service pack 1 or 2? Make sure you have all the latest stuff from Windows Update.

After those, let us know .

Hi, this just happened yesterday and I have been searching the net for a solution ever since. By the way, my Dell system automatically performed a Windows update on shut down last night so that may be relevent.
The problem is that every time I close a window in explorer I get the following message: "The instruction at 0x01f5b80 referenced memory at 0x018ead58. the memory could not be read. Click ok to terminate the program."

I've ran Norton anti-virus, as-aware, spy bot and Windows beta anti-spyware.
I've also re-installed IE from the xp disk. But nothing has worked. I've included a hijack this log and I really would appreciate any help! Thanks.

Answer:Solved: IE Application error when I close a window

For other's info, I've managed to fix the problem.
I clicked on the tools menu of internet explorer and selected 'internet options', then 'programs'. Then clicked 'manage add ons' and selected 'add ons currently loaded in internet explorer.' Then disabled each program one at a time and tested if the problem occurred (remember that you have to close IE first and then restart.)
Turned out the source was 'solid converter pdf' (a free program from a computer mag) which translates pdf files into rtf or doc for editing.
However, this program has sat quite happily for two months so don't know why it suddenly started causing a problem.
Anyway, everything is now rosy in freddyfeet's computer garden (until next time!)

Hello.
A rain of problems landed at my doorstep which I hope all stem from 1 bad thing.

random programs close themselves seconds after being launched (like starcraft in update screen or installer, adobe shockwave installer and updater). in addition IE8 is on the fritz has when I open it it repeatedly "recovers" a tab over and over around 10 times until it closes (not crashes as no event log was found), microsoft visual studio 2010 closes on new project creation.

Alone, each of these problems have an answer in google but i tried them all with no avail. I ccleaner my reg, made sure my kaspersky and malwarebytes are up to date (nothing detected).
I would love some advice on where to go with this
(If it is the wrong forum, please move the thread)

My main problem is programs closing on start without error which is what i'd like to solve

Hello,

Starting March 31 / April 1 my system has begun popping up these errors no matter what program I am running.

Internet explorer (7 and 8..tried both).
Firefox
MS Word
Online Games (Final Fantasy XI, World War 2 Online and others).

No matter what app im running, it will crash once per hour at the least. Sometimes it will crash two to three times in a row and then it will work normally for about an hour and crash again.

I've checked for conficker, ran anti-spyware and multiple AV's and they found nothing.

I have not installed or removed any software whatsoever before this error began. In fact, this system has been running for almost a year without having anything installed or removed from it. I have MS updates turned off as I manually search and update the software every other month.

I'll post any system tests you require but before I do so I'd like to see if anyone else has been having this issue...and I have to run to work now so i'll post the system tests tomorrow morning.

Greetings!

I'd like to throw some fresh sand onto this ( programs stop working in Windows Vista ) topic, which is ancient but appears to remain unresolved. I've had this same problem nefariously for many a moon now, while it isn't crippling of my computers performance it occurs frequently enough to make me question if perhaps it isn't a worm. I've consulted a series of forums about their respective programs, but after concluding that it isn't exclusively an issue with each individual program in which I encounter this application terminating error I am left to believe that it may indeed be an OS spanning bug.

Personally, I have received exactly the same suggestions for correcting the problem as have been listed here in response to this fellow's on at least half a dozen boards. Remove Norton! They say, this must be a fairly common and frustrating problem, Norton, and while i have no doubt that it's as tyrannical and computer devouring as people say it is it's never been on my system, ever! I'm running an HP Slimline, it's a great machine, with Vista Home Premium. This Error has stopped me from running my recently purchased edition of Avast! 4 Professional Edition's system scanner, a series of other nameless programs, and a handful of relatively unbeefy videogames like Phantasy Star Universe. When prompting windows to "find a solution to the problem" windows quite simply chooses not to, or can't, I can't tell because that's usually where the error prompt dissipates... Read more

Answer:"'Program' has stopped working, Windows will now close the program" Frequent Error

A) Don't bother trying to let Windows find a solution. 99% of the time it won't.

B) I assume 'many a moon' is not 'since new'. It's most likely a driver or app that has been installed and is conflicting with something.

C) Apart from Avast and Phantasy Star Universe, exactly what apps are crashing?

D) Your log doesn't show anything untoward. A few unnecessary start up items though.

E) Are all drivers, Windows Updates etc, up to date?
Check in Event viewer > Custom Views > Administrative events for the application crashes and see if there are any common 'faulting modules' that point to a particular file or files.

I'm having trouble with Adobe Premiere 6.5 and Ulead VideoStudio 10 plus. Every time I load either of these two programs I get the "{Program} has encountered a problem and needs to close, we are sorry for the inconvenience." error. If I ignore the error I can work with the two programs, no problem, so why does the error come up? Is it virus? It's running on my XP computer which has no internet connection. The only way a virus could have gotten on there is by copying things I downloaded on my web computer onto it. I have no anti virus on the XP computer, so I can't check. I recently downloaded Auto Gordian Knot, and put it onto my XP computer, could this be the cause of the strange error? What do I do to fix it?

PLEASE respond to this, as I use Premiere and Ulead for my work, and I must fix my computer soon.

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

It started with Outlook (2003) then Sony Media Manager and now Mailwasher Pro. I can use Outlook to send and receive messages OK and the error only appears as Outlook is closing down. My Mailwasher Pro update won?t run at all and produces the error report when I try to run it.

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

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

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

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

My system is Windows XP home sp3

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks

Answer:"Program has encountered a problem and needs to close" error

1. Do a repair install of your O/S.

2. Stop making edits which cripple your O/S.

And a third one...if you install a program and problems follow...uninstall that program.

When shutting down laptop, get Program Failure to Close windows. When I hit end process, it does shut down. I looked up some of the various ones I get (not same every time) and they appear to be part of system32 driver strings - I searched on 2 of them and they were in one of the blogs. 4e8 and 8d8 were 2 of the recent "programs that failed to close. Happens most every time I shut down. Any suggestions?

Answer:Shutting down get error message program failure to close

Let's find out which specific programs are the problem

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

Answer:Solved: drwtsn32 - Close Program - Error - Internet

This problem came back to Flash Player. Version 9, the latest has problems. I matched the date Version 8 was updated to 9 as to when the problem started.

After a lot of work, I found out that Version 9 cannot be uninstalled by the usual was in the Control Panel, You have to get a special Uninstaller from Adobe.

Then I hunted, found and reinstalled Version 8. No more problems.

Still, it may come back to haunt you because some Shockwave movies will automatically update FP-8 to FP-9 without notifying you. The Links follow:

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
This will test if FP or SW is installed and which version is installed. Also, the Flash Player box will cause the Error when you hover over it.
************************
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14157
This link will get you to the Uninstall program for Version 9.
Below is a quote from Adobe that just shows how stupid software makers are getting:
>>Due to recent enhancements to the Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller.<<
SAVE the uninstaller program in case 9 pops back in.
************************
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14266
This link has the earlier versions of FP.
SAVE the zipped FP version you download in case you need it to replace 9 again.

not sure if it's possible in Task Scheduler but i really want it to work. Basically I know how to automatically start program in Task Scheduler and how to also force close it. If we want to force close it we just create a .bat file with text like
Code:
TASKKILL /F /IM "nameofprogram.exe"
and schedule to run such file in specific time (for example 2.00.05 PM)

but this doesnt solve my issue because I need to automatically close my program without actually force close it. The above solution only force close the program and it's not what I want. I want to "properly" shut down the app, something like we click "X" in the program manually. Is that possible?

The problem is because I trade in MT4 automatically. if I use the above solution to close it on schedule, when it reopen, any change made to the object list in the MT4 would be deleted as if nothing ever added there. That's why I need a solution to automatically close my MT4 on schedule but not force close it. Any idea guys?

Answer:How To Close (But Not Force Close) Program Automatically On A Schedule

hi guys, after try to find more solution on Google apparently there's a very easy fix!

I should have not used the "/F". it force close the program!

should just go directly TASKILL /IM "nameofprogram.exe"

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.

We lost power to our computer one day last week and it hasn't worked properly since. Ad-aware would not open so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Somewhere during the installation process it freezes up and I get an error message saying it needs to close. When I try to open already installed programs I get an set up error that says error writing application data. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling those programs also with the same result. Here is my hijack this log if that helps at all:

I have a Y700-34ISH Desktop (ideacentre) - Type 90DF00B2MW, and the "Driver and Installation Application" program is installed. When I clicked on the driver menu it showed a bunch of items, which I went ahead and installed. It asked me to restart the PC, but after I did the items are still showing.
 
1. What is happening?
2. What are the benefits of this program?
3. Is it ok to uninstall it if I don't want those benefits?
 
EDIT: It seems like this program "updated" several drivers to older versions. At least that happened with Geforce, and I also had to reassign my headset as the preferred output in the sound settings.
 
Confusing stuff like this doesn't make one happy after spending $1500 on a new PC.

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

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

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

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

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

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

My system is Windows XP sp3

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks

Here's a little background on my system:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have an application that seems to close, however the process is still running.

A way around I thought would be to launch the app from within another vb app using the shell or CreateProcess command.

I already know what the handle id is of the App, so I thought I could wait until the app window closes, then terminate the process.

However, I have got as far as launching the program using a shell command. I have never done any API programming before.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Hi guys!

I have had this strange problem for a few weeks now and so far I can't figure out a solution or why it happens.

When closing an application, the application's service (in the Windows Task Manager) doesn't end with the closing of the application like it should. This is happening with 85% of my applications and they are known apps like Cyberlink Player, Burning software, and others. The Software doesn't hang... it closes normally but it's process is still in the task manager. I can right click and end the process with no problem but it should be ending when I close the software. One program (Edius) won't even open another process without me first ending the first one from the Task Manager Window.

I have checked (with 3rd party software) what other threads these processes might be hooked to, preventing it's ending but all seems normal and there should be no reason that it shouldn't close.

Just a note... I have very good knowledge about computer maintenance (I am a moderator on another Windows 7 forum and solve many problems for many people) and it is very rare that I can't find solutions for almost any problem but this one is a mystery for me and others that I have asked.

Any ideas?

Answer:Application services that won't end on App close

Go to Start and type in msconfig. Then go to Start Up and un check everything except mouse, keyboard, security. Then go to services and in the lower left put a check in Hide All Microsoft Services. Now un-check every thing except security. Reboot and see if that takes care of your problem. You are not stopping these things you are just telling them not to start at boot and run in the background. Those things start and stop when Windows 7 or you tell them to.

I currently use an application called WinTopMost, which prevents users from clicking the "X" to close dos windows. These windows pop up when we run posting procedures. so this prevents a user from aborting a posting before it finishes. Because the software is for non-profits, I'm always looking for a lower cost alternative to what we currently use, which may prove too costly for our customers.

Is there a freeware or group policy that will do the same thing for users who RDP to a Windows2003 R2 server?

Please advise if you need me to supply more information to answer the question.

I also noticed my McAfee will not perform a scan, it starts it but always says 0 files scanned. I installed Malwsrebytes and ran ta scan in safe mode, problems were found but once I restarted my computer it said unable to find clean up file (or something along the lines of that.

I would like to kindly ask if someone could please assist me because I don't see any solution left. Here is the list of what I have already done so far:

1. Checked (scanned) for viruses & malware with the following programs (all of them up to date): avast internet security, spybot search and destroy, adaware, malwarebytes antimalware, drweb cureit, superantispyware.

2. Made sure there are no "bad" entries in the registry with the following programs: abexo, registry booster, ccleaner, pc health advisor.

3. Cleaned all temporary files (cache etc) with the following programs: ccleaner, windows disk cleanup utility.

4. Made sure in the Internet Explorer which is up to date in the Options are both entries, that are related to "script(ing)" ticked which means disabled.

5. Made sure ALL drivers are up to date. I used program DriverScanner program and then I checked also manually.

6. Uninstalled previouns version(s) of .NET Framework and installed 4.0

I am running Windows Vista 32 bit on a Sony Vaio which originally had Windows XP. I can't recall when it started but sometime after upgrading ( whether immediately or not I cant remember ), the red ' x ' button on the top right corner of windows/apps has stopped working in most applications. I have to close with Alt-F4 or use the menu. Likewise I cannot move windows around the screen by grabbing the top bar with the arrow and moving them. Is there a fix for this?

I really feel like an idiot (but my wife came over and made me feel better -- we're a couple of idiots).

I doubleclicked on an MP4 to play it (from Explorer) and this XBox Video thing came up and played it. Fine, looks like a nice player. But when I stopped it wanted to exit the application -- can't find a way.

Oh, I can switch to ANOTHER application, but how the heck do I close this thing down? Yeah, I could bring up Task Manager and kill it there (I suppose -- haven't even seen if there is still Task Manager, although I assume they would not have gotten rid of that) but there MUST be a simple way to close out an app, right?

(If not I'm going to remove that app and make sure I never accidentally bring it up again).

Answer:How do you close XBox Video application?

Alt-F4 still works, as it always has to close apps. You can also move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen until it turns into a hand, then click and drag the windows down to the bottom of the screen and it will disappear.

Additional methods include moving the mouse pointer the top left corner, until the list of running apps shows up, then right clicking on the one you want to close and choose close. And of course task manager, which is much improved in Windows 8. If you have a touch interface, you can also use a swipe.

You may want to consider getting the free e-book.

Hi Guys,
I am running the latest edition of Windows 8.1 and have recently run into some problems. I have the Steam Gaming client installed on my system with a few games, one of which is Team Fortress 2. However, after I close certain games, that might run in fullscreen, and some don't like Minecraft, I can't open any other programs. Not task manager, I can't even shut down my PC. It's not just Steam items. I have a feeling that my problem might reside in RAM issues, however I am not sure. Please provide insight and advice, thanks.

If I understand correctly, games that run full screen when you close them there is something still taking the whole screen. No task bar or upper portion of the screen is visible and can't even access the Charms Bar to shut down if need be.

I have a few games that do this and I use Ctrl + Alt + Del to access the Task Manager to shut down the process and regain control of my system.

Hi all,

I'm using Windows 10 64 bit and have 8GB of RAM on my laptop.

I keep getting a low memory message and a recommendation to close a specific app - usually Photoshop.

I am using MemInfo which displays how much RAM I am using in the Taskbar/tray area - which is usually between 50 and 75%.

I typically have Chrome with about 20 to 30 tabs open, MS Word, and Photoshop open.

It all used to work fine for months, but now recently I've been getting this message a lot and if I choose not to close the app - usually Photoshop - Chrome has started crashing.

Should the 8GB be able to handle all this? Is there a problem with my RAM now?

Any tips?

My computers at home and work both run Windows 7. Both have "taskbar buttons" set to "combine when the taskbar is full" (so that if, say, I have 3 open pdf files or Word documents, they default to having a separate location on my taskbar, unless there's no room).

My work computer has something though so that if I mouseover (say) one of three open pdf files, or six open Windows explorer folders, on the taskbar, I can "X" something and all three close.

However at home, doing that will cause all open examples of what I'm mousing over (windows opened by the same application) to show up, and I have to individually "X" out of each one.

That's a bad explanation, but I think it's understood. I'm trying to find how to configure Windows to close all windows associated with one application with a single click, and I'm not finding it.

Answer:How do I close all windows from a single application in one click?

The only way I know of is by using Always Combine, and then right-click the Taskbar button and choose "Close all windows".

My problem is ... when I run the SecondLife / Firestorm Viewer everything is fine but when I close the application the display crashes with lots of different colours appear all over the screen.  I don't get the flicker that some people have talked about and so far no other application has caused this to happen.
I suspect this is a problem with switching graphics cards and/or driver related.  I have deliberately kept the drivers as per latest Dell version.  I have rebuilt the pc several times and tried using a few different drivers but nothing helps.  Before I refreshed the PC the application was OK.
Any Ideas ?  right now my best option is to shutdown the pc without closing the application.

Since installing the latest Win XP security patches and updates, I have encountered a problem I've never seen before. I'm not even sure how to search for a possible answer, since all the key words/phrases I've tried come up empty. I first noticed it when I opened Outlook 2003 and discovered that there were changes in my tool bar. I customized one of the tool bars, and the changes I made were no longer there. I then redid the changes through the customize tool bar option. The next time I opened Outlook, the changes were not there. I have a program that I have load at startup. The program allows me to have it open minimized in the systems tray upon startup. However, now the program opens on my desktop. I go into settings and check the minimize in systems tray at startup option, and the next time the program starts, my the options are unchecked.

I've done scans for viruses, spyware and malware and my system is clean. I am using Win XP Professional SP2 and have all patches and security updates through 4/26/2006.

Can anyone help me to understand why these changes are not being saved when I close the programs. I'm assuming it's a Windows issue since it is happening in more than one program. I'm guessing it may be a registry issue, but since I'm not sure how changes are saved in Windows, I haven't a clue as to where I should be looking in the registry.

Any help that anyone can give me will be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Program changes not saved when I close the program

Hi,

I think I may have screwed the pooch.

My Dell Laptop was running fine until about a week go. Then I suddenly started getting errors in multiple applications stating <X application> has encountered a problem and needs to close. The issue is very similar to this thread.

The errors seemed to be limited to applications that were using images. Also when I viewed the error log, the user32.dll file was always referenced. Everytime I reboot, I would get the errors is different apps. I found some references that discussed replacing the user32.dll file and went about do so.

So this is where I may have hosed myself. Basically, instead of hitting F10 during the reboot, I changed my MSCONFIG setting to start in safe mode. This presented 2 new problems. Now, whenever I try to startup, I'm brought to a screen to select my user either Administrator or Dave. I set the Dave user up when I started and never went back to setup the Administrator. No Passwork I have tried works with the admin user. I then tried to startup with the Dave user. As windows is starting, I get the error message and that's as far as I get. My assumption is that the safe mode uses some image to replicate the desktop and it's crashing there.

Now, I'm basically stuck in safe mode without being able to get into windows to change the setting so I can start normally.

So i should also say that I tried to rename user32.dll through windows and that hung on me and I needed to reboot. OK, here&... Read more

Hello,
I have recently Installed EMET 5.5 on my Windows 7 Professional Operating Sysytem...
I have followed the guide, and imported the 'Popular software.xml'.
So this morning, Outlook was no longer able to open, reporting that: 
EMET detected Caller mitigation and will close the application: OUTLOOK.EXE

Caller check failed:
  Application : C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE
  User Name : DOMAIN\User
  Session ID : 1
  PID : 0x2A14 (10772)

  TargetAddress : 0x75225020
  StackPtr : 0x009EEA08

I have ended up unticking 'ROP Caller Check' Mitigation technology against outlook.exe to get outlook working again.
Can anyone give me some guidance with further diagnosing this? Or if this is a potential false positive?
Thankyou,
Callum.

My Windows 2000 system generally runs quite well. Now and then, however, a program [not always the same one] will hang up. When that happens and I try to use the Task Manager to close it, I sometimes get the following message "This program cannot be closed. If it is being debugged, please resume it or close the debugger first." If a debugger is running, it's not because I started it. I have no idea how to start a debugger in Windows 2000. If I repeatedly click "Cancel" the error messages usually go away and the program is closed. Sometimes, however, I have to reboot. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this from happening?

Earlier today I tried to access itunes store. Now my itunes window is stuck open on my computer. I've shut down manually, I can't do it from the windows menu. When the computer reboots, it's right there on the screen. I can't ctrl + alt + delete... nothing happens. I can't left click in the task bar and close that way... nothing happens. I can't move it, minimize it...

It's not affecting anything else...so I'm not really concerned yet, but I can't get gone! If you have any ideas, let me know.

I have windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite
 

Answer:can't close program!

Look for the appropriate iTunes process:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3960

When you've determined whick process it is, kill it:

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > right-click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window, type Taskkill /IM your iTune process /F

Press Enter.
When done, restart the computer and see if iTunes is opening again. If it is,

1- Please click HERE to download HijackThis.
2- Run the program.
3- Click on the Main Menu button if not already there.
4- Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.
5- Copy and paste the scan log from Notepad into your next reply.
6- Do not "Fix" anything unless advised to do so.

For Windows 7 and Vista:

If Windows is denying access to the Hosts file, be sure to run HijackThis as Administrator or disable the UAC first.

Hi folks. Is there any way (keyboard combo preferred) to actually close an application? THanks.

Answer:Close a program??

I assume you mean in new Metro interface.

You can drag the top of the app to the bottom of the screen to close it.

Or you can mouse over to the left, do some gymnastics with the mouse up or down whatever, see the app you want to close, right click on it and click the x. (Something like that. I can't open any Metro apps to check because I have UAC completely disabled.)

This is a strange issue only in Win8.1.

As we all known, if there is a running application in a machine, there should not be any other behavior against the application when we connect/disconnect/reconnect to this machine by Remote Desktop Connection. However, we found that Win8.1 will
fire unload and load events to the WPF application when we close and reconnect to the machine using RDC. And this is an unwanted behavior which may cause error. Here are the stable reproduce steps:

1. Write a WPF application which contains a button and handles the unload and load events of this button.
2. Using RDC to connect to a Win8.1 from Win7 for example.
3. In the remote desktop, run this WPF app.(a load event will be recorded in a.txt).
4. Close the RDC by clicking the 'x'.
5. Connect to this Win8.1 again.
6. You will see the unload and load events have been fired.

If the WPF app runs in Win7 or Win server 2008, those events will not be fired.

So, I think it is a unwanted behavior in Win8.1. Is that a bug in Win8.1 RDP? Or is that a new feature? I'm looking forward the answer.

Thanks,

Peng

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.
