"Unusual" fault message

Myron Bennett

Turning the computer on has started to give this message for a few
days now:
microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program C:\...

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an
unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more
information.

Anyone know who to tell about this?
Since I don't notice any NEW things going wrong, it doesn't seem to
bother anything except itself.

Thanks

It means that something you have running at Startup used the Visual C++
Runtime Library as part of the code. Manage your Startup to find out what's
running so you can discover the culprit. It never hurts to make sure your
computer is virus/malware-free, either.

To manage Startup:

Start Orb>Search box>type: msconfig and when it appears in the Results box
above, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator".

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation,
type the password, or click Continue. Then see what is on the Startup tab.
You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do you'll get
a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Usually in Vista this will be
blocked by Windows Defender and you'll need to allow it so you can then
tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".

Important - Do not use the System Configuration Utility to stop processes.
Instead, use Services.

Start Orb>Search box>type: services and when it appears in the Results box
above, right-click and choose "Run As Administrator". Confirm elevation as
needed.

The free Autoruns program is very useful for managing your Startup -
