How to Fix EXE Errors

Jun 28, 2008
EXE errors on your computer can create a lot of problems, for you and your system. If these errors keep appearing, actions need to be taken to correct the problem to eliminate the errors and messages. EXE errors can be a result of several different causes, so it is important that you follow certain steps to correct the root of the error messages. You could have an electronic infection, caused by a worm, virus, or trojan. Spyware programs may be installed without your knowledge, your registry may have invalid files or keys, or your files may be corrupted or missing. All of these things can cause you to receive EXE errors.

EXE errors can be repaired, and the methods used to do this will vary according to the initial cause of the error. It is a good idea to follow all the steps, to ensure that all the causes of EXE errors are repaired. You may be getting these messages for more than one type of error, and following all the steps will stop any of these errors, and at the same time boost the performance of your machine and make it work much faster. These steps will also maximize your PC security.

If you do not have an anti virus program installed, find one and install it as soon as possible. Viruses and other malicious programs can do serious damage to your computer, so it is important to stop them before they infect your system. A software program to detect and remove spyware is also important, because these programs can cause a significant decrease in performance, as well as steal sensitive information and take over parts of your system. Make sure you check for updates and scan your system for viruses and spyware every day.

Ways To Fix EXE Errors

The first step to fixing EXE errors is to delete all temporary files on your computer. This can be done by going to the Documents and Settings folder. Delete the contents of the Local SettingsTemp file. Next empty the Cookies folder. Now do the same to the History folder. The last folder to empty is the Local SettingsTemporary Internet FilesContent.IE5. Now click on your Start bar, then click on Run. When the box appears, type in cleanmgr and then click the okay button. Choose your operating system drive, which is normally C, and check off these boxes: Recycle Bin, Downloaded Program Files, Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, Temporary Off line Files, and the Off line Files. Now simply click OK.

The fastest and most convenient way to get rid of EXE errors is to use a registry cleaner. This is a software program which is specifically intended to clean out the registry of your system. This chore can be quite risky to attempt manually, because some of the keys and entries in the registry are needed by your system just to boot up and operate. If the wrong thing is deleted, your computer may become useless, and it is not always possible to repair the damage. A registry cleaner offers a safe and fast alternative to manually editing the registry.
