Runtime error when a folder is opened

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


We have several accounts in our PC.  When my father is logged and he opens any folder, he gets a runtime error.  It says that the application will terminate in an unusual way. 

This error does not occur on any other accounts.  I'm sure you guys are capable of giving me a clue on what’s wrong along with the solution.

Runtime error when a folder is opened



I think your father's user profile is damaged during a run. I don't know where specifically but it is the only problem. Now I am suggesting you how you will fix this problem. I suggest that you create a backup of all of his files from his My Documents account.

Then delete the said username of your father that he is currently using. Delete also the folder of the user in C:Documents and Settings[Username of Father] and then create another account C:Users[Username] in Vista and 7 version. Hope this fix your problem regarding the run time error that you get in opening a file.

Runtime error when a folder is opened



Hi David,

It’s highly probable that the father’s profile (actually the computer that you all are using) is infected by a virus. I’ve had the same problem with my machine. For getting the runtime error, every time I open a folder. In order to fix this, my solution was to fist scan my entire computer for viruses. Use your personal Antivirus, or a free one (you can search for Avira or Avast as alternatives).

After doing this step is best to also check your registry (using your father’s account) about any error. For this step you can also search for some free cleanup registry tools, but be careful what do you check there. I recommend CCleaner for this. I hope that this will fix your problem.

Best Regards,
