When program files or files within your
computer's registry have become corrupted, this can cause the programs to
unexpectedly crash. When a program crashes, you will likely get an Appcrash
error. The error message will say "Windows Media Player (or whichever program
has crashed) has stopped working" and then list rows of technical information
regarding the cause of the crash. Unless you are a computer programmer, you may
never fully understand what caused your program crash, but that doesn't mean
that you can't fix it.
Delete any new programs that you have downloaded. Often, the cause of corruption
in a computer system are bad downloads that bring harmful files onto your
computer. 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 your
"Control Panel" to get rid of the program immediately.

corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you

antivirus software as soon as possible. These are designed tor from outside threats. 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
- 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 program. For instance, there are some DVD softwares, such as Media Now, that do
not work correctly with Windows Vista. These lists can be easily found online.
If this is the case, you will have to purchase a software program that is
compatible with your OS
