Hi Johnhegry my name is Joyce Skitter!

This is an error message that normally happens if:

1. The file had cross linked to another file.
2. It can be a malware issue.
3. You may have installed two or more anti-virus and firewall on your computer.

To resolve this issue, please try to do the following steps:

1. Check the permission on the folder of the program you are trying to open or use.

  • Right click on the folder.
  • Select on "properties".
  • Make sure that the folder is not "read-only".


2. Do a spyware scan on your entire system.
3. Check your programs. Make sure that there is only one anti-virus and one firewall (aside from Windows firewall) is present. If you do see more than one protection installed, please delete the unnecessary protection.

If the above solutions still does not work, try doing these steps:

1. Uninstall your software.
2. Download and install DirectX 8.1 through this site.
2. Use DirectX as input/output and see if it will fix the issue.

That’s an access violation error triggered at a certain memory address. First, try closing Total Commander then restart the computer. After booting, start Total Commander again then see if it works. Normally, this error is just by accident and fixes itself after rebooting or restarting the application. If this doesn’t work, try to uninstall and reinstall the program. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it.

Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select Total Commander among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then install Total Commander back.

See if this works. Also, if you are a registered user, just download and update to Total Commander 9.21a. Downloading and updating to the latest version is still free for registered users. If you are not a registered user, you can still download the program and use it for 30 days for free.
