Sample application error on Windows XP

Microsoft announced that will not give more support for XP since April this year. It is possible that there is something with the update itself or maybe something wrong during downloading.
I suggest to go back in time before you installed the updates using system restore, so the changes made to XP will be uninstalled. You can try to update windows in a couple of days.
To enter system restore, click the following:  start > all programs >accessories > system tools > system restore. You will get this screen:



Click on next and you will get this:


You will have to choose one date of the yours calendar before the updates were performed. The date you choose must be in bold blue, then click on next two times. The computer will do some tasks and then will restart automatically. A message will be prompted to indicate that the system was restored successfully to the date you choose.

I hope this helps

That dialog normally appears after a program crashes. If you are using a program and it crashed while you are using it, this error will appear. This is normal actually and I encounter it a lot. After seeing the error, try running the program again and see if it works. If it doesn’t work, check if it is compatible with your computer.

If the program is a download, visit the site where you downloaded it and check its system requirements. Make sure your computer meets the requirements. If the program has prerequisites like Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, and others, you need to install them for the program to work properly.

If the program does not support your operating system but you managed to install it, you need to uninstall it. If the program is perfectly compatible with your computer and you didn’t miss installing a component, try updating it. Check for an updated version and install it.
