System32 errors and how to fix them

Monday, July 28th, 2008

System32 is the name of the most important file folder on any given PC that runs Microsoft Windows system. The System32 folder contains a set of subfolders hosting a group of files that makes the core of the Windows operating systems that you have. If you are running XP or Vista, you can open Windows Explorer and type “C:\Windows\System32” to locate the folder. Take a quick look at the content of the System32 folder, it’s not hard to realize that almost all software that comes with the Windows operating system can be located within the System32 folder. Try to open the “Driver” subfolder within System32, you will find it stores the entire list of drivers that are required by your PC.

There are many computer errors associated System32. Nevertheless, the source of the errors is less likely related to the System32 folder, unless you delete or modify it, but more likely related to files, programs, DLLs and drivers located under the System32 folder. When you encounter a System32 related problem, try to locate the exact file that’s causing the problem. To do so, look for the name of the file that’s usually displayed on the System32 error message box.

When your PC encounters System32 errors, it is demonstrating some underlying issues ranging from missing or corrupted files to Windows Registry issues, which indicate more severe problems. Most changes to Windows make their impact to System32. When you install or uninstall a program, System32 folder is changed. When you install a new piece of hardware or upgrade a driver software, System32 is modified. Basically, System32 is modified every time when you make important changes to your computer whether it is for software or for hardware. Constant changes to System32 eventually result in missing or corrupted files. When that happens, your computer will encounter and demonstrate issues like program crashes, slowing down and even system crashes.

The second type of System32 errors is less known to average computer users but is more prevalent but harder to deal with. It is related to corrupted and clogged Windows registry. Just to give you an example, corrupted Windows Registry entries related to System32 will prevent Windows from starting up properly (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545) . Also, corrupted Windows Registry will also annoying display System32 errors (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/170086). For most people, these type of errors are not easily fixable unless you have comprehensive computer knowledge and specifically knowledge about System32 and its related Registry structure. Please be aware that we are talking about the most sensitive part of a Windows platform and any small mistake can result your PC to be reinstalled or your precious personal data be lost completely.

Introduction to ActiveX Control

ActiveX control is a type of software modules created by Microsoft to enable a wide range of functionality to applications, especially for Microsoft Internet Explorer. Web pages utilize ActiveX control to deliver multi-media contents, embed Microsoft Office documents and offer Windows application-like functionality within Internet Explorer.

Causes for ActiveX Control Errors

ActiveX control errors come in two types. The first type of errors is caused by missing ActiveX controls which are needed to support multi-media decoders as required by web pages. In this scenario, you need to download and install a specific ActiveX control codec so that your web browser can function completely. The second type of errors is associated with corrupted installs or incomplete uninstalls of ActiveX or any program that shares common modules, executable files, Dynamic Linking Libraries (DLLs) or other essential program files.

When your PC encounters the second type of ActiveX control errors, a part of your Windows Registry, from where PC retrieves and stores all of its application information, is corrupted and contains erroneous information.

Tips to Fix ActiveX Control Errors

The best solution to fix and put a stop to ActiveX control errors is to always maintain a clean and optimized Windows Registry. Registry cleaning and optimization can be conducted manually by advanced and knowledgeable PC users and professional computer technicians. Nevertheless, if you are a normal PC user, we recommend you do not edit your Windows Registry manually as the complexity of such task and the cost of mishandling Windows Registry cleaning can ’t be underestimated.

Virtual Memory

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

Introduction to virtual memory

Virtual memory is an extension of your computer’s physical memory (Random Access Memory or simply known as RAMs or computer memory chips). In order to be able to run multiple applications simultaneously, your computer looks for sections of RAM that have not been used recently and replicate them onto the hard disk into the form of Page Files. This frees up space in the RAM so that your PC can load more active programs.

Causes for virtual memory Errors

As virtual memory is implemented using Page Files on hard drives, its performance is much slower than actual memory chips. When you don’t have enough RAM, the operating system has to constantly swap information back and forth between RAM and the hard disk. This phenomenon is called thrashing, and it can make your computer feel incredibly slow. You may not realize that at the start-up time, your PC has already loaded an array of applications, without your intention or consensus. This results in high demand for large amount of virtual memory, which is implemented using tremendously large page files. Eventually, your PC can no longer sustain such unexpected demand and it will then give you the “Out of Virtual Memory” or "Virtual Memory Low" errors.

There are two more reasons for your computer to experience virtual memory errors. First, runaway processes or processes that fall into endless loops continuously generate demands for virtual memory without releasing it. Secondly, unhandled programming exceptions or application crashes fail to free up virtual memory already allocated. Both types of issues are directly caused by conflicts and errors in settings of Windows Registry that is lack of maintenance and optimization.

Tips to Fix Virtual Memory Errors

The best solution to fix and put a stop to virtual memory errors is to always maintain a clean and optimized Windows Registry, which only contains registry keys and values that are absolutely necessary and correct for the Windows operating system and legitimately installed applications. It is also highly recommended that you proactively manage start-up applications to reduce the foot print of virtual memory usage.

The most effective, secure and feasible way to completely eliminate virtual memory errors is to use a reputable and trustworthy Windows Registry cleaning and optimization software such as RegCure.

A Simple Introduction to Runtime Errors

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.
