How to fix run time error on XP?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

When I am running some application particularly Internet Explorer suddenly an error will appear saying that a run time error has occurred.

I don’t know what to do about this I have already scanned my computer with anti virus for possible threats but nothing was found. I don’t intend to re-install all the applications that come with this error.

Is there another solution for this? Below is the common error that keeps on popping up.
