After downloading a game for my son onto his computer he recieved a message that the application crashed. What does this mean? How is it fixed? He is quite upset and I don't know what to do
mostlly this happens when you downloaded a corrupt file, anyway let see if we can fix it using the restore mode, if you're already familiar with it try to restore it using the date before the game was installed if not follow these instruction.
1. upon bootup press "F8" and wait for the option that lets you select some option such as safe mode, safemode with networking, etc, etc,
2. select the "safe mode", your pc will load with only minimal option a popup box will appear asking if you're going to use restore mode. (if your pc crashes before it loads the system stop rigth here, your system needs to be reformat, otherwise pls proceed)
3. click "START", "Program", "Accessories", "System Tools", and then "System restore"
4.popup box will appear select ok or continue until you reach the calendar option that will let you select the date you want to restore in an earlier time, pls select the date before you install the game ex. you install the game on 10/15/09, then select the 10/14/09 or later then select ok or continue until it reaches finish.
5. reboot the pc, this should solve your problem
