PC crashes when closing programs

Q: PC crashes when closing programs

Hello all My PC makes me mad it seems like I've been having problems with it ever since I bought it some years ago I guess Anyway this time it's even more annoying than most other problems I've had it crashes when I close some programs especially those that are using a lot of RAM The typical case is when I close Firefox I usually have at least tabs currently open at once and according to task manager which I always have open FF usually takes up about Mo of RAM or is that bytes I'm not very computer-savvy I have Go of RAM installed though IIRC due to Vista limitations only are effective But I'm digressing the point is when I close Firefox it well closes I mean the window but the process is still active in the task manager and after a few seconds my PC crashes I think it sometimes gives me the BSOD but most of the time the screen goes black and nothing happens anymore with my PC still on Did some tests with other relatively high memory usage programs and sure enough when I close them my PC crashes Weirdly enough it does it too when I close the Windows Picture Gallery or whatever the default picture viewing tool is called in English I'm using Vista in French Hope someone can help

Preferred Solution: PC crashes when closing programs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Internet Explorer 8 has started crashing for no apparent reason, always after I try to close a tab. I get the "Internet Explorer has stopped working" message, and I can either wait and choose "close program" or just cancel it. Either way, the tab closes and IE continues to work. This always seems to happen at random times, and I can't find any similarities between the pages that cause these crashes. Any idea what could be causing this? I would switch to Firefox, but there are certain aspects to IE that I'm very reluctant to give up, so I'd only want to do that as a last resort.

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium x64.

When I try to close Word 2002 after printing a document, I get the message "Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close." If I choose to recover my work, Word reopens with a blank document like I had simply clicked on the shortcut (the title bar shows the file name as Document1). This does not happen if I open a file to read it or make changes without printing, but it happens every time after printing. I am thinking that there is an incompatibility between Word and my printer's software. The printer is an HP Deskjet F4580, and I have the bare minimum software install (just the drivers and software needed to use all of the printer's functions). The printer is connected through USB, and the computer is running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 and is fully updated. I would appreciate any assistance with this problem.

A:Word 2002 crashes while closing

Hi lti ,

Please try to perform two basic steps below if you don't mind. We will uninstal and reinstall your printer and then use your Microsoft Office CD.

a.1)Uninstall Microsoft Office
XP >>
Please go to start and open Control Panel. Double click ADD/Remove Programs and uninstall the Microsoft Office program.

Vista/Win7 >>

Please go to start and open Control Panel. Double click Programs then under Programs Feature click Uninstall Program and look for the Microsoft program then uninstall it.

Or

a.2)Insert Microsoft Office and run the program then check if that has an option for REPAIR

Please restart the computer to make sure the changes that was done will take effect fully.

b.) Printer

Insert the CD driver of your Printer

XP >>
Please click START button then click RUN. Type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter key on your keyboard.
Click the + to the left of Ports and right click Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then Uninstall driver
Right click Ports/Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then click Install/Update Driver
Follow the wizard and locate the CD drive to install the driver

Vista/Wn7 >>
Please click START then click CONTROL PANEL. Click Hardware and Sound then double click DEVICE MANAGER.
Click the + to the left of Ports and right click Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then Uninstall driver
Right click Ports/Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then click Install/Update Driver
Follow the wizard and locate the CD drive to install the driver

Then make a series of test. Check other document programs if they are doing the same...

HP Pavilion, Windows 32-bit Vista. I've been having this problem at work now for the past few weeks. We have free wi-fi there, and at times when I would close out of the internet, it would close, and then I would get the blue screen. It would then ask to restart windows normally, which I would do, and it would work fine. Lately, its been doing this more often, and now its doing it at my other job and home also. All are wi-fi access if that matters. I always get the pop up box that says windows was shut down and that microsoft would alert me to a solution. It doesn't happen with any other program.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

A:Firefox 19.0.2 Crashes Immediately After Closing

Hi bej,

While researching, I came across various instances where 'similar crashes' are reported with 'Mozilla Firefox version 19.0.2'; appears to be a known issue.

You may try the troubleshooting steps listed in this tutorial to see if that helps: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...t-and-get-help

If the issue persists, you may try moving back to install an older version of 'Firefox' to and check results.
Hope this helps.

If possible please tell us what the computer shops did to repair your system in bullit points.

Secondly please give us your full hardware profile in bullet points as well. It makes it much easier this way. Yes, we know you have a 250 psu but we'd like the brand name. Also video card, etc. How old is this system?

Lastly...

How to find and post your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

This only started happening after I installed a new Radeon 9800 Pro and has some trouble with the drivers. At the same time, I also had to update the drivers for my Creative Audigy MP3, which has ALWAYS been causing me driver conflicts and errors.

Some programs (currently hl.exe is doing it :/) are just not closing right. I end them with task manager and they dissappear from everywhere but Task manager, where they stay no matter how many times i click end process. I tried through command prompt, it said it terminated the process, but it just stays in the task manager process list. I also tried through EndItAll, which told me it didn't have permission to kill the program.

Im currently using XP SP2...
 

A:Programs not closing

hl.exe is a half life executable. Go into your options in the game and see if there is an option to enable/disable auto updates etc.. make sure all options for things relating to HL running at startup are disabled... it could just be memory leak, are you current with all patches/updates for your game?

Recently I have been having trouble with my computer I suppose thats obvious Certain programs that I have been trying to run start but immedietly close themselves This all started when I installed Sim Double Deluxe to play around with in my spare time The game installed fine but when I tried to launch it nothing happened I opened the task manager to see if it was even loading Sure enough it was but it was closing within a second No other process loads other than Sims sp I started thinking it was some bad malware or spyware Programs own closing on their or something keeping it from Programs closing on their own opening Before dealing with that I went through EA s tech department as they step by step read through chapter of the tech manual And Programs closing on their own so I did as they asked - Rebooted - Went through task manager turning Programs closing on their own off processes and msconfig removing startup items and unneccessary services - Downloaded new drivers for my video card and sound card - Turned off any cd emulation software couldn t find any - Turned off firewall was off perhaps why this has become such a problem - etc The last thing I was to told to do again another something obvious was to do a manual uninstall of the game to try to remove any corrupt files And so I did Went into program files deleting the folders The problem really came to fruition when I delved into my registry to remove the sims from there Typed quot Regedit quot into the run window and seconds later the window closed I tried to do this in safe mode just incase it was a running process interfering with it Again closed in seconds This is where I came to think theres probably some nasty virus or malware affecting my computer After browsing many forums I downloaded and used a few programs including - Ad-aware - Spy-Bot Search and Destroy - Norton Antivirus Internet Security bought figured it had been awhile since I had a decent antivirus program anyhow - and Max Registry Cleaner Several spyware viruses tracking cookies bad registry files later and I still havent fixed the original or the later problem In fact I ve only come to find that I cant launch Ad-Aware either the same thing happens and it wont load And so I come here asking for help I know I haven t been taking care of my computer like I should but lets just consider this step forward in my ability to manage my computer better Forgot to add the log Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v Scan saved at AM on Platform Windows XP SP WinNT MSIE Internet Explorer v SP Boot mode Normal Running processes C WINDOWS System smss exe C WINDOWS system winlogon exe C WINDOWS system services exe C WINDOWS system lsass exe C WINDOWS system svchost exe C WINDOWS System svchost exe C WINDOWS system svchost exe C WINDOWS system spoolsv exe C WINDOWS eHome ehRecvr exe C WINDOWS eHome ehSched exe C Program Files Norton Internet Security Engine ccSvcHst exe C WINDOWS Explorer EXE C WINDOWS system nvsvc exe C WINDOWS system svchost exe C Program Files Max Registry Cleaner MaxRCSystemTray exe C WINDOWS system ctfmon exe C Program Files AIM aim exe C Program Files AIM aolsoftware exe C WINDOWS system dllhost exe C Program Files Norton Internet Security Engine ccSvcHst exe C Program Files Mozilla Firefox firefox exe C Program Files Trend Micro HijackThis HijackThis exe R - HKCU Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Main Default Page URL www google com ig dell hl en amp client dell-usuk-rel amp channel us amp ibd R - HKCU Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Main Start Page about blank R - HKLM Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Main Start Page http www dell com R - HKLM Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Search Default Page URL www google com ig dell hl en amp client dell-usuk-rel amp channel us amp ibd R - HKCU Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Internet Settings ProxyOverride local O - BHO Adobe PDF Reader Link Helper - E F-C D - D -B D- B D BE B - C Program Files Adobe Acrobat ActiveX AcroIEHelper dll ...

I have been having problems with programs closing unexpectedly on their own without any error message. They will run normally for a few minutes and then just close down. I also have trouble when I run my TrendMicro antivirus, it will run for a few minutes and then I get

Application popup: UfNavi.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x........" referenced memory at "0x........". The memory could not be "read"

where 0x........ is a random address that's different each time.

I can't run any scans because they don't have enough time to finish before the program closes itself down. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am using Windows XP SP2

I have Limewire Pro insalled on my PC, I have had it for a very long time.

I have noticed that today, every time I go to open it (even after uninstalling and redowninging and reinstalling) it will open for a split second in the Task Manager view and then close itself.

The same is going on with internet explorer ( i am using FF now ). I open Internet Explorer and try to use it, and it just closes after attempting to open a site.

Also, I have scanned my PC with Norton 360 (newest norton suite) and it didn't find anything.

THe last thing, I recently had my RAM replaced in my Laptop because a stick went bad. IT was causing the DELL loading screen to freeze. It's happening again every once in a while when I turn on my PC, why?

The other day I was burning a CD on RealOne Player and all of a sudden, the window closed out. First, I thought there was just some kind of weird, minor mishap. But later, I tried opening AOL instant messenger and it stayed open for 3 seconds and closed out. This also happened with RealOne, and my attempts to Install a newer version (2004) of Nortons Antivirus only lasted until the "Would you like to activate and register now?" screen, which was 3 seconds into installation. Something keeps closing my programs. I also cannot stay long in the Add/Remove Files window. I just installed Bullgard and it detected:

C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT\00008457.EXE=>(FSG 1.33)

Status: Infected Backdoor.Agobot.3.Gen

in which the file was "infected" and was unable to be disinfected. Nortons 2003 did not pick this up. Is there any other way I can rid my programs of closing themselves

Hello,
I have a problem which started recently. The problem is that everything closes unexpectedly.
I am using the classic desktop environment to use this system and all the 'apps' I use a classing Windows programs.
Randomly all of the programs that are running on the machine close down without warning (And I mean ALL of them, even explorer.exe). I know that this has not been caused by a recent installation of a program as I have not installed anything recently. I also checked the computer with an Anti-Virus software as that could have been a cause but there wasn't anything.

Im not sure if anyone has experienced this issue as I did not find anything through Google

Does anyone know how can I solve this?

Thanks,
Oskar

A:All Programs Closing

All programs close but windows does not shut down? Just stays at desktop?

Do a malware/spyware check.

Spybot search and destroy

If spybot does not clear the problem then download and run COMBOFIX

A:Programs Closing

Hi,

Never heard of something like this, but the Graphics Card situation sounds familiar. I doubt your GPU is causing your programs to close though. Here's what I would do if I were in your shoes:

Uninstall and reinstall your GPU. Grab the latest drivers and make sure they are properly installed.Run an antivirus check. I personally recommend Malwarebytes Free.

Hope this helps.

Some programs (currently hl.exe is doing it :/) are just not closing right. I end them with task manager and they dissappear from everywhere but Task manager, where they stay no matter how many times i click end process. I tried through command prompt, it said it terminated the process, but it just stays in the task manager process list. I also tried through EndItAll, which told me it didn't have permission to kill the program.

I bought a new computer a couple of days ago and I am experiencing a very interesting problem. Anytime I return to the computer after taking a break from work my monitor shows "No Sync", so I move the mouse and my desktop shows only the desktop versus the programs that I had opened before I went to take my break. As long as I am working on the computer I experience no problems. The problem only seems to arise when I take a break and come back to the "No Sync" on my screen. Could one of the computer's power saving modes be doing this?

Hello, I don't know if anyone can help me but any time that i go onto my laptop it closes down every program after 5 seconds with the message 'This program has encoutered and error and has to close do you want to send an error message' after this the program closes down. I don't know what to do. also whenever i turn my computer off it suddenly goes after logging off and shows that it's shutting down, it shows me a blue screen error and then restarts. I have tried a system restore and i don't know what to do. The only program that i can get running for a long time is realplayer when it automatically starts playing a dvd. The laptop is a Acer Aspire 5610 media center edition. i have already tried malwarebytes to no effect.

A:all of my programs keep closing.

Is the only error message you receive...what you quoted in your first post?

Do you have a Microsoft XP install CD? Do you have recovery/restore CDs provided by Acer?

The window in question is the Windows Explorer one. Everytime I click close, I get a message telling me that Windows Explorer stopped working or something. Anyway, it restarts on its own. This happens every time that I click close on a Windows Explorer windows. I have a feeling it's the new Windows Update that just finished installing. I've attached the Update History copy below.

A:PC crashes to solid colour screen upon closing games?

Hi and welcome to TSG.

I am assuming this is a self / custom build based on your listed specs?
What is the exact make, model and revision number of the motherboard?

Can you provide a DXDiag report? Copy and paste the entire report into a reply here.

What software are you using to check your temps?

You have a good PSU in there but worth checking the output voltages, even good manufacturers sometimes have bad units slip through the net. I use HWMonitor as a guage in Windows (its free), if you can provide a screenshot of HWMonitor with your system idle at the desktop, then leaving HWMonitor running run a game for a couple of minutes then exit (if we are lucky it wont crash) so we can get another screenshot. Then post the two screenshots in a reply here.

A:Programs Closing due to APPCRASH

Initial troubleshooting steps for Explorer related issues:Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

I am glad to see you ran a virus scan; the problem you describe is often associated with viruses/malware on the system. You should also download and install Malwarebytes, update it, do not start the free trial, and then run a full scan.

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup and see if a startup or service item is causing conflicts. When you disable startup and services items, make sure you hide all non-Microsoft services first. Leave only your Norton software set to start in both startup and services.

Check your Administrative logs for errors and warnings:Click Start Menu
Type eventvwr into Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
Right click eventvwr.exe and click Run as administrator
Expand Custom Views
Click Administrative Events

Is there a way to force Windows to save a programs progress (ie a rendering program such as Revit) and restart, similar to the actions it takes before the computer shuts down after the battery has died?

The best i can come up with is this - Restart or Shutdown Windows Without Loosing Running Programs - Cache Programs State

Has anyone else noticed this,

I am using a browser, and for example looking at the forum here. When I close the browser without logging out from the forum and then restart the browser I am still logged in.

This never happens with Vista, I always have to login again

Does seven not close the programs properly to speed up the re-opening??

Does this not infringe on some aspect off security? Not for me I am the only user

Could this be a bug?

This works for both IE and Firefox

Likely malware. Try scanning using a tool such as MalwareBytes.

You should boot into Safe Mode and perform the AV and malware scan.

Hi All I have a question that I have been unable to solve but first I will start off by saying I am running boot camp on a mac just so there is no confusion I am an architecture student and am using a program called Revit to render D models regularly Due to the long render times find myself stuck waiting many hrs up to many days with my computer tied up rendering Recently after a lapse in smart thinking my without closing programs? Restart battery went dead and I thought I had lost hrs of rendering time I then disappointingly restarted my computer to restart the render but found that Windows had saved as a last effort to maintain my program files and unsaved data the progress of the render and it continued upon reboot My question is is there a way to mimic this on demand so that I can boot into osx without having Restart without closing programs? to wait for renderings to finish or close them prematurely Thanks for your help

A:Restart without closing programs?

As far as I know, Boot Camp is the 'Mac version' of dual booting, correct? In that case, the short answer is no; if you switch to OSX, you will have to shut down or hibernate your Windows installation.

However, something you can try is using virtual machines. This way you can have OSX as your main system, and have Windows run on a virtual machine inside OSX, allowing you to switch between the two as you please.

With vista and previous OS's it was easy to just right-click a program on the taskbar and hit the letter "c" to close it. you could very rapidly close a series of windows from the taskbar.

now in win7 x64 when i right click a program in the taskbar and hit 'c' it simply highlights the "close window" option... requiring me to either have to hit enter or click on the selected option "close window"

is it possible to have things work like they used to ?? such that a right-click and then the letter 'c' would close the window without any additional input ?

thanks in advance

I upgraded to Windows 10 when it first came out, and everything has been fin until recently. It feels like most everything I click on has a 1 in 20 chance of just closing itself with no error message. In Edge for instance if I double click on the top part to full-screen the page a message pops up asking if I would like to close all tabs, this message could pop up any time I click anywhere but it occurs 100% of the time if I double click the top.

League of Legends clients will flicker on the taskbar as if something is trying to close the program but failing, and occasionally it will close itself with no warning, same with a lot of Steam games, any other browsers, or most programs I try. I just recently reset my computer attempting to fix the issue but the problem is still there, any help is greatly appreciated
 

A:Programs are Randomly Closing Themselves

Start Task Manager from the taskbar, click on More details if it is showing no tabs. Then click on the Startup tab. Disable all programs there from auto starting and see if the problem continues.

Hi Monica and wlecome to the forum!Sounds to me like you are infected with something.For starters, download install, update and run both MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpyware. Get the free versions and do the complete scans with both. This could take a while so go kill some time while they are scanning.Remove all elements found and reboot if prompted to do so.If this does not clear up your issue let us know so that we can get you moved to the Malware Response Team.

Hello, I have recently re-imaged my laptop after it was experiencing a few lag issues but I believe it is more along the lines of RAM (besides the point). I have installed Norton 360 and this was about my third re-imaging of this particular laptop (2 years old). Whenever I open a full screen program after a certain time (30-90 minutes) the program automatically closes without any error dialogs. Nothing happens before or after this anomoli and I would appreciate if someone could give me their two-cents. I DO have a partitioned drive expanded off of my C: drive.

What I think:
I don't believe it to be malware because I just re-imaged.
It could deal with memory like a memory leak of sorts but I'm not sure if that makes sense.
OS: Windows Vista (Upgraded SP2)
RAM: 1500MB
Processor: 1.73 GHz 1.73 GHz Intel Celeron M

A:Automatically Closing Programs

hello

you asked for two cent's worth, I would start by uninstalling norton (as a test) and be sure to use the proper removal tool!

next: if you reimage a drive with an infected image, couldn't you still be infected?

If you have the recovery discs, I think theres a memory test under startup repair...http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/

alright thats my 2 cents worth!!

Hi, my computer just recently started acting up, whenever i open up a program. It works for a little bit, then i start to use it, it freezes up and i get a (NOT RESPONGING) next to the program name. I go to task manager and try to shut it off manually, but i get the end task warning screen with a yellow exclamation point in the bottom right hand of the program icon. The message says that closing this program may cause immediate instability on your computer . . . Then, my computer totally freezes and i have to maunally turn it off.

Hi Guys, I am using another computer to explain the issues with mine..
I am not sure I am in the correct area but if not please direct me.
When I open anything on my computer it freezes solid and I can't close it at all.
The only way to close the program is ctl,alt. delete...

I did a defrag also a malware run and all my updates are to date..
The computer is running Vista if that makes any difference.

So can you please put me on the right track to getting this problem fixed..?

Thank You

Hi Room this is my first post!

Must say its really great to find a good IT forum on the net.

Anyway I have just recently purchased Win XP Pro SP2 OEM with a new Hard Drive (200GB Seagate). Unfortunately I seem to be having one problem after another.

One of my problems is whenever I close a program it remains in my Task List using up some of my system memory. I have carried out several windows updates in the hope that one would contain a fix for the problem, but no luck. I am at the moment running SFC to see if that will sort the problem.

Has anyone got any ideas as to how this problem can be resolved?

Thanks in Advance

Everytime I open a certain program on my computer, I get this message:
"Studio program file has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
And then the program closes abruptly. Any ideas on how i can stop this?

A:How to stop programs from closing on their own?

There is a problem with the install of the program.Some files may be corrupt. Uninstall the program using Revo Uninstaller Do the advanced method and remove any leftover files from the Registry. restart the computer. then reinstall the software program. Look to the web site of the software manufacturer for an updated version.

In the past I've had problems with Internet Explorer closing abruptly after a couple minutes of having it open, I solved that problem by downloading Mozilla Firefox. But now I bought and installed WebEasy6 and after a few minutes of opening the program it abruptly closes and I lose my work. I have AOL Safety and Security Center and it tells me there is no known viruses or adware/spyware. I am out of ideas. PLEASE HELP ME OUT!
Thanks- Sean
 

A:Programs closing abruptly

Post a Hijackthis scanlog and also run eventvwr.msc and look at the applications log; if you have IE7 there is also an IE log.

Double click any relevant errors to read the description and use the double-paper copy icon to copy the description here for pasting.

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

I have a couple of downloaded games from AOL/Pogo that don't close when I close them. My system gets really boggy and when I go to task manager I see that the game program is still running and consuming a lot of memory. When I "end task" everything frees up beautifully. Aside from uninstalling the games, any thoughts?

Thanks!

i deleted those files from my computer, yet the problem still exists.
i've uninstalled and reinstalled winamp, nothing happened.

Well, I've had problems with the stupid license thing before too and there's one thing to check that might fix alot of things. When I had the license problem it was because my PC clock had been set back alot of years, I know it sounds awkward but that's what happens, so check your PC clock year and switch it back if it was changed. If that's not it post back.

P.S. You shouldn't have Panda AND Avg installed, it should be one or the other because they cause problems with each other, just like most Anti virus when you put more than one on.

Sounds like there's something else that's eating away at your computer. You might want to run a virus scan (http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/) to see if that's the case.

When I open Excel (also Word & Powerpoint), the progam opens and I see a blank spreadsheet (as normal). Then it just closes down as if I had never opened it. This problem just began. I've used these progams almost daily. Other programs open just fine.
Does anyone have any clues?

A:Solved: Visual C++ Programs Closing

These sound like console apps.
If you are running in the debugger - just put a breakpoint on a line at the end.
If there is a "return 0;" statement -- use it.
You could also run these from the cmd prompt in the folder that the exe is produced - or you could program in a pause or whatever
