I Made A List Of Every Possible Reason Why This Error Still Continues To Stick In Your Computer And Those Are:

  • Virus Problem
  • Windows Registry Corrupted Problem
  • Corrupted Software Problem
  • Corrupted Windows Problem

I think now you do know something about this issue like, what is this error and which of your program is creating this problem like something and to make things back to normal, I wrote the whole step by step guide written down below to fix this problem and now you’ll just need to follow every step one by one carefully until you fixed this problem on your own. So, Let’s see!!

#Fixing The Appcrash

Now the first thing which I wanted you to do is to repair Windows files to find, does this problem is showing you because of some corrupted files of your operating system or maybe it’s just happening because of some installed Program. Let’s make things clear by troubleshooting the Windows.

Step 1 – Clean Your Windows Junk

In this step, you’ll be going to clean every junk file stored in your computer’s operating system drive to fix these type of error. There is a lot of things like, junk files, temporary files & corrupted registry who turns your computer’s performance in really a very bad condition and I know for sure you can quickly fix it by just doing some simple steps as all listed below.

So, let’s starts with cleaning your system’s junk files by deleting overtime stored application’s data temporary files and some of your system’s temporary files too, which actually slow down your computer and encourage some particular program to occur this type of an error.

Here’s The Path Of Temporary Files & Folder, As Listed Below According To The Different Version Of Windows:

>> For Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 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

>> For 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

>> CMD Commands For All Windows Version

IOr you can also use these listed Commands in your Windows Command Prompt to clean all those junk files easily, even without searching those suggested folder path location in your windows.

  • rd /s /q %temp%
  • mkdir %temp%
  • rd /s /q c:\windows\temp\
  • mkdir c:\windows\temp\

Step 2 – Make Your Computer Virus Free

Virus!!! Virus!!! Virus!!!…. It’s the only thing which can make your whole Windows corrupted by just a single infected Virus file. Yes, it’s true and it can also be the good reason for this error to get stuck on your computer’s screen and at this time,  it’s better to use a professional antivirus in your computer, if your PC is suffering from any 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 to buy some best in 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. You can also use the 30-day trial version of Avast and if it looks worthy for you, you can buy the full version pack.

Step 3 – Repair Your Windows files

To repair your Windows files, first, you’ll need to open your Windows CMD command prompt as administrator and then 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.

After that, your CMD starts to scan your computer and that will definitely take some time and its all depends 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 when scanning gets completed, restarts your computer and try to run your Appcrash responding program. If the problem still not solved then stay continue with this article and move to the next step.

Step 4 –  Use Compatibility Mode

If you are using the old software in your latest Windows Operating System, then using the Compatibility Mode option will be quite beneficial for you.

Ex.– The main problem with Windows 8 % Windows 10 is that some programs can’t be able to run in the Windows 8/10 or maybe if they start to work, you’ll get an appcrash in the middle of that running software, because the main reason is they are not compatible with Windows 8/10 and If you want to run Windows 7 or earlier versions of programs in Windows 8/10 then you have to change the Compatibility setting of the program according to Windows 8 or 10.

If you wanted to run some of those old rare programs, then try to run it in XP Compatibility Mode.

To use Windows Program Compatibility Mode feature you can follow the instruction listed down below:

  1. Right click the .exe file or the shortcut of your appcrash responding program and select Properties.
  2. Click on the “Compatibility” Tab.
  3. Check, Run this program in compatibility mode for and select an appropriate option.

#Fixing By Advanced Solutions

If nothing from above solved your problem then it’s time move on to do some advanced stuff on your computer because now it looks like your windows is having some mysterious problem in it and to fix that, you’ll have to try some superior stuff, to make thing back to normal. So, let’s try some advanced methods;

Step 1 – Changing Permission For That Application

Sometimes due to some automatic changes in files of your system, your operating system won’t able to permit that file to get into the process to run and remains to show you an Appcrash messages.

So, in this first step of the advanced solutions, we are customizing the permission setting and grant the permission for that program which is creating the crash errors.

Now you’ll need to open your Windows System Properties page to get into the main setting what we wanted to open to change the setting.

Click Here To See “How to open System Properties in Windows Vista and Windows 7?”

First, go to Start, right-click on Computer and select Properties.

After that, it will open the properties window.

Click Here To See “How to open System Properties in Windows 8 and Windows 10?”

Open your computer’s drive home page and find the system properties option on that window’s header.

Or, you can press the “Windows key + Pause / Break key” on your keyboard to open it.

After when you open the properties page, follow the given steps to change the setting:

  1. In the left sidebar, select Advanced System Settings
  2. When System Properties window comes up, select the Advanced tab and click on the Setting button under the Performance category menu.
  3. Select, Data Execution Prevention.
  4. Select, Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.
  5. Use the Browse button to locate your file. In my case, my internet explorer is not working so I’m searching for main internet explorer file and add it to the exceptions list.
  6. Click Apply or OK.

So, now search your application’s file location and select that program’s installed .exe file what you’ve wanted to add for Data Execution Prevention.

After that, just restart your computer and you will able to use that program properly.

Step 2 – Repairing Windows Registry

The Windows Registry is a hierarchical configuration storage database that stores settings for the Microsoft Windows Operating System and other installed software in your Windows.

The registry is the main target when a virus or malware starts to corrupt your windows and a single Changed value in your windows registry can cause this appcrash. It’s the second step in this advanced repairing solutions and most of this error gets fixed through repairing your windows corrupted registry. You can try to fix your windows registry by using some best in class registry cleaner and that will fix your problem by just doing some simple steps.

Here Are The Link of Two Top Rated Software’s What I Recommend To All My Websites Guest Users As Listed Below:

I’m suggest Zookware Cleaner over CCleaner because most of the clients happy with it, and it provide more features than a simple registry cleaner under the low-cost price tag and the best part which I loved about this software is, if you are not happy, then they have a great policy by providing “60 Day Money Back Guarantee”, Pretty Good Right!!.

Step 3 – Clean Boot Your Windows

We normally use the clean boot operation to remove all extra startup process or features which can possibly cause this Appcrash. Actually, a clean boot is performed to starts your Operating System by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs.

To perform a clean boot, open your “System Configuration” and disable all the extra services and startup programs from the service and startup list. Here’s a picture attached below to show you how to do it.

#If Still Not Solved – Need Deep Analyzation

Just like I said, most of the times this error shows you the every little detail what you actually needed to know about fixing this error. Yes, it does, you’ll just only need to analyze the error and that’s it.

For the error analyzing process, first, you’ll have to start by reading the error description and after that, you’ll also need to research some files name on the internet too,

As you can see I highlight two things, first which program is creating this problem and second which file is corrupted, who makes that program to create an appcrash. Now we only need the second one to find out about that file, like what it does and how this file affects this appcrash.

Now we only need the second one to find out about that file, like what it does and how that file affects this appcrash.

For research, you” need to put that file’s name on the Google and search every detail about it. In my case, it’s a Windows file which is normally found in the installed Operating System  Drive and by updating Windows I just fix my problem.

If you still can’t able to find any useful file name or maybe it’s only showing you .exe file or this appcrash research thing isn’t useful for you then you can also try some of more couple solutions which I’m all listed under the given category below:

Feedback By Peter On 26.JAN.2016

“Thanks guys. Got mine fixed just by reinstalling DX11 redist and VC redist from Microsoft.”

If nothing helps you can also try to reinstall your game and sometimes that did works, but before doing that, don’t forget to save your ‘saved games files’.

Click To See Solution For - If some software having an appcrash.

If you having some software installed on your computer who makes this problem then there are some couple or more things what you can do to make things works this time and those are:-

  1. Update – Yes, updating works all the time you’ll just need to download the latest version of that software and install it properly.
  2. Compatibility – Check does everything is compatible with that software or not, if you’ve installed something recently which isn’t compatible with other software then there is a possibility of getting the error.
  3. Support – Go to your software’s support web page and creat a complaint about your software’s problem.


If all of the above solutions didn’t work for you, in that case, you can also try to reinstall that software who creates this Appcrash problem. But sometimes it possible that the reinstalling software also didn’t works, in that case, the one thing you can try to do is to reinstall your Windows operating system and after that install the perfect drivers for your hardware.
