Introduction to Runtime Errors
A runtime error is an error that occurs during the execution of a software. Runtime errors indicate problems that the designers had anticipated but could do nothing about, or just bugs in the software. For example, running out of memory will often cause a runtime error. Runtime errors are somtimes recoverable, except they may cause loss of unsaved data. Some applications even provide runtime error handlers that are stored in Windows Registry to deal with programming exceptions when they occur.
Causes for Runtime Errors
Runtime errors can be caused by unexpected data entries, empty or erroneous references to programming and application component entries stored in Windows Registry for COM/ActiveX controls, application paths, shell extensions, runtime error exception handlers, or even font entries. In other words, your running applications are fed with false information that was stored in your Windows Registry and eventually they will crash unexpectedly.
Tips to Fix Runtime Errors
Although in general, you need to keep your Windows and software patches up to date in order to avoid runtime errors caused by programming quality issues, the best solution to fix and put a stop to runtime errors is to always maintain a clean and optimized Windows Registry, which contains nothing but registry keys and values that are absolutely necessary and correct for the Windows operating system and legitimately installed applications.
The most effective, secure and feasible way to completely eliminate runtime errors is to use a reputable and trustworthy Windows optimization software such as RegCure.
