#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.

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\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

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 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:
- Right click the .exe file or the shortcut of your appcrash responding program and select Properties.
- Click on the “Compatibility” Tab.
- 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.
First, go to Start, right-click on Computer and select Properties.
After that, it will open the properties window.
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:
- In the left sidebar, select Advanced System Settings
- When System Properties window comes up, select the Advanced tab and click on the Setting button under the Performance category menu.
- Select, Data Execution Prevention.
- Select, Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.
- 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.
- 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.

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’.
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:-
- Update – Yes, updating works all the time you’ll just need to download the latest version of that software and install it properly.
- 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.
- 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.
This will definitely work for you 100% if the problem is coming from corrupted windows;
Before reinstalling Windows, I’ll highly recommend you to search your error name on Google search to find the perfect solution for your appcrash and your search query will look like this:
