There are many possible causes of that error.

It's maybe because:

  • Malware or virus affected your computer.
  • The file is damaged, missing or corrupted.
  • Hardware compatibility issue – Maybe you installed a Win64 application which is not compatible win Win32 execution.
Malware or virus affected your computer

The best solution for your problem is to install some software which detects virus or malware presence in your computer, and at the same time checking if your application file is linked badness to your registry file. I recommend to use the SirCam virus scanner that verifies and modifies the .exe file association to registry.

Sircam detection and clean

But if possible (not virus affected), try to replace the files via reinstalling the program.

Hi Myrna,

Usually this Error occurs due to Corrupted file, file is not designed for the versions of your Windows , a virus or malware file in your computer and hardware incompatible.
 
Well if you have a corrupted file most of the time your windows will unable to execute properly and a pop up error message in your computer may be seen. The solution is run a Scan disk and Defrag your hard drive so it may check for any potential error. Also be sure to not run a Program that is not designed for the version of your windows. Also run a Virus scan in your Computer. Boot it and run in Safe Mode, it will ensure that nothing is running in your background that's causing the error. Update your drivers for incompatibility issue.

Hope it helps.
