Question about Computers & Internet
Pc game (bounty) won't install on my computer. I have Windows VIsta and when I try to install it says "HPCS program no longer running" and that's it. The game came with a peice of paper that says if I have trouble installing this,and get a message about can't install then just click the ignore button,but I don't get that message. I get the above message and think it's tied into or is "start_here.exe". Can you help me?? It says to contact best buy for any problems with the software. I bought 9 games and they are all having this problem.
I do believe that you have to run the Vistas compatibility test before downloading any programs. If it is a new game, does it say that it will run with Vista?
I had a couple of Dell and HP techs already tell me that if it was made before late 2007, it won't work. There went about $5,000 down the tubes. Oh yes, did I mention that I sent them a list of what programs I had and those I planned to use then asked for advice on the best system for my needs--this caveat went totally unread throughout the transaction with Dell, Every time something goes wrong with the system, the tech tells me that I should at least have some protection for my data-one for one thing and the secocnd as a fail safe. HMMMM--Well Dell, when I purchased the new system I upgraded the amount of Dell Data Safe; I also purchased two different external hard drives. One is only 80GB, and the other from them and still in warranty 500GB External HD didn't make the slightest bit of difference. The third external on here is a 250 GB External--Now what were you saying about playing it safe by using different options?

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
