Unfortunately XP Pro doesn't have a fully functional Run As command. If you try and make a request for certain system functions it will always authenticate as the current explorer user. The solution is rather odd and cumbersome. Say I was logged into Arthur but wanted to run control panel as Keech then I would follow the directions below.
1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\ and Run As cmd.exe as Keech 2. Open Task Manager and kill the process explorer.exe 3. In your command window type C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe and press enter 4. Open control panel normally
5. All done!

Pictures wont load said it has wrong format and i dont have origanal cd to load the proper program to run the player

There are many different formats for pictures. You can download a utility called G-Spot (yeah weird name but ..... you can do a google search) from here. The utility will allow you to get the codec information for the picture(s) you have and with that information you can search for the proper codec.

The Software is not installed completely, so kindly uninstall the application by navigating from control panel-> Add or remove programs and reboot the machine.

once the machine turn up, then install the application as fresh copy. it should fix the issue.

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135).

When attempting to run Microsoft .Net based applications, you may get the following error on startup:
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)
The cause of this error is that the Microsoft .Net framework is not installed or is damaged in some way. Therefore applications will fail to launch.
To fix this error you can run Windows Update and find the Microsoft .Net framework update to install. Alternatively, you can download the Microsoft .Net Framework directly from Microsoft.

When i open some applications windows shows the message 'the application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b).click ok to terminate the application'

These error messages may be caused by the WORM_KLEZ.E virus, or one of its variations.
Go to and run their free online virus scan. It can take a couple of hours to run and you must be connected to the internet.
It that doesn't do it let me know.

Lenova computer running Vista crashes most applications. Two examples: Family Tree Maker: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: FTM.exe Application Version: Application...

Weird category.  Seems OS- or program-specific enough.

The exception codes are supposed to give you insight into what's going on, (Intel exceptions C000 00029 and E043 4F4D in the context of Vista or your CPU in particular, say) but perhaps you should try the Vista equivalent of WinXP's RunAs options, where you can run them as older applications and dodge some incompatibilities.

Similarly, you might want to create a VM (or runtime jail; many, many options to be had there...) and try it in that context, so that if the program's spoiling things at least your system won't need to worry or crash.  The easiest thing of course is to find updates of those programs that promise to play well with Vista.

Install.exe application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click on OK to terminate the application.

First of all i would like to tell you that this could be an Operating System Crash, so you need to first run two commands in the run box

chkdsk c: /r -->> This might will ask you Yes / No, say yes to it and reboot the computer


run after using the above command sfc /scannow

If none of them works you need to run Inplace Upgrade;en-us;315341
