Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

Is Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 compatible with the Dell Dimension 3000?


Installation checkup If you already have a copy of XP in your hot little hands and you're not sure yet whether your system is compatible, you'll find the XP Setup routine contains built-in compatibility checking. You can save yourself a lot of headaches if you:
  • Read the compatibility report which is generated automatically at the beginning of the installation and take note of its findings.
  • Remove any items that are likely to cause problems. If the compatibility checker finds any likely problems, uninstall or disable any incompatible software and remove any incompatible hardware (if possible) before continuing. Particular software to watch out for is CD burning software, system utilities and antivirus software. Check the manufacturers' sites for updated drivers and software and install them before trying to run XP Setup once more. And watch out for your USB hardware, as XP seems to be particularly finicky about which USB devices it will support. Once again, check the manufacturers' sites for updated drivers.
  • Abide by any warnings from Windows. I deliberately ignored XP's warning that the USB Smartcard reader I installed was likely to cause problems. The result? A blue screen of death, a series of reboots, and the forced removal of the offending Smartcard reader. (In fact, it gave me a chance to use one of XP's nifty features: Device driver rollback. Worked a treat!)

Pinnacle is investigating this problem.
We can offer you the following workaround:

I bought a copy of XP Professional Service Pack 2 over the internet assuming that it was a new product. I got duped!!What I received was a Dell Reinstallation CD complete with key. Can I use this to...


It will install on any PC but I suspect that if you use the CD, even with the Key from the PID, it will not activate. I had this problem when I upgraded my son's Dell 4600 and used a Clone MB.

XP installed fine,but it would not activate. I ended up calling MS activation line, explained that I had upgraded, and they gave me an activation key.

Legally, Dell branded XP is sold only with the system, and the license in not transferrable to another system (This limitation is only for OS's sold by OEM PC manufactures [YES, I actually read the license agreement during an install on my Dell system one day], doesn't apply to MS branded Retail XP)

USB / hardware problems, caused by MS updates!


Wakanska2003:

I typed quite a long response for you yesterday. Unfortunately, in my haste over another situation, I clicked off the page before it was posted. This will probably save you some time reading, anyway, as I will try to condense the same information I wrote yesterday. If you need additional detail in regard to the processes enumerated below, or how to accomplish same, please advise.

First, yes, SP3 has known and acknowledged issues, and many users have uninstalled the service pack until the bugs are worked out. Presuming the uninstall files have not been removed from your system, you should also be able to remove SP3. Uninstall the program by using Add/Remove Programs (Control Panel) - you should see SP3 listed toward the bottom of the program list.

Two other matters go hand in hand with this. In addition to the SP3 file itself, there have likely been numerous other updates which were reliant on SP3 for functionality. If you utilize the system restore function, and if there is still a restore point available prior to SP3 install, you should be able to completely revert your system. Otherwise, it will be a matter of isolating the updates that need to be removed (due to removal of SP3).

Secondly, I have voluminous experience with both service packs and automatic updates creating tremendous problems with my system. I spent months working with the "top level" MS R&D team in order to try to solve issues created by SP2 - MS finally closed the case with a status of unresolved. Further, my issues with Automatic Updates (A/U) started about 1.5 years ago, when MS changed the process and it consistently resulted in consumption of 100% of system resources, locking up the system continuously for extended periods of time. After MS put out a fix for this, I installed, and again enabled A/U. (However, please note that I always had A/U set to download and let me decide when to install. This too was due to prior negative experience of great magnitude.) Needless to say, the same issues occurred again within a matter of months, although every single "fix" of previous "fixes" MS put out for this matter was installed as it was issued.

To this day, I have not again enabled (and do not intend to) the A/U process. Rather, I visit the Updates site periodically and download appropriate updates, with my complete control and interim verification of the entire process. Therefore, though it is an extremely personal decision, my choice is to disable Automatic Updates. There are many, I am sure, who would suggest this should not be the approach; however, with the full months worth of time that have been eaten up because of the A/U process, I find it much more useful and helpful to control updates myself.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
