#Fixing The Appcrash

First thing what we’re doing to make things work is, repairing windows files to find that does this problem is showing because of the corrupted files on our system or maybe it’s some another problem. Let’s make things clear.

1 – Clean Your Windows Junk

In this step, we’ll gonna clean every junk file stored in your computer’s operating system drive to fix this type of error. There is a lot of things like, junk files, temporary files & corrupted registry who made your computer in a very bad condition and I know for sure you can fix it by just doing some simple steps.

So, let’s starts cleaning our system’s junk files by deleting overtime stored application’s data temporary files and also your system’s temporary files too which do slow down your PC and making this error too.

Here’s the path of temporary files folder listed below according to your windows version:

Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and windows 10:

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp
  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
  • C:\Windows\Temp
  • C:\Temp

Windows XP:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temp
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
  • C:\Windows\Temp
  • C:\Temp

Or you can use that command on cmd to clean that just files easily without searching these folder path locations:

rd /s /q %temp%

mkdir %temp%

rd /s /q c:\windows\temp\

mkdir c:\windows\temp\

2 – Make Your Computer Virus Free

Virus!!! Virus!!! Virus!!!…. It’s the only thing which can make your whole Windows corrupted by single infected virus file. Yes it’s true and it can also be the good reason for this error to get it stick on your computer’s screen and it’s better to use a professional antivirus if your computer is suffering from that kind of appcrash problem.

I highly recommend you to perform a full system virus scan on your computer by using your antivirus software. If you don’t have any antivirus installed in your computer or maybe your installed antivirus is too blind to scan viruses then the first thing you’ll need to do is, buying some world class antivirus for your PC.

Nowadays Antivirus are cheaper than it’s before and if you’re looking to install one of the best Anti-virus  in the cheaper price range than Avast is one of the best in their kind.

3 – Repair Your Windows files

To repair your windows you’ll need to open your cmd as administrator and type “sfc/scannow” and hit enter. After that, your cmd starts to scan your computer and this will take some time depending on your computer’s speed.

  • Click on Start Menu.
  • In the Start Search box, type cmd, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to open cmd as administrator.
  • Type sfc/scannow and hit enter.

After scanning completes restarts your computer and tries to run your Appcrash responding program.

If the problem still not solved then continue with the advance solution below.

4 –  Use Compatibility Mode

If you are using the old software in your latest windows operating system then using Compatibility Mode gets beneficial for you.

Ex.- The main problem with Windows 8 is that some programs cannot be run in the Windows 8 or don’t work properly because they are not compatible with Windows 8 and If you want to run Windows 7 or earlier versions of programs in Windows 8 then you have to change the Compatibility of the program according to Windows 8.

If you’ve run into one of those rare programs, try running it in XP Compatibility Mode:

  1. Right click the .exe file or the shortcut and select.
  2. Click the Compatibility.
  3. Check Run this program in compatibility mode for and select an appropriate option.

1 – Changing Permission For That Application

Due to changes in files of your system, it won’t able to permit that file in the process to run and remains to show you this Appcrash messages. So in this solution, we are customizing the permission setting and grant the permission for that program which is creating this crash error.
