1083 ratings | 204892 views
This video presents two possible solutions to the common issue of a program crashing or "has stopped working" on a Windows computer. METHOD ONE: In a elevated command prompt (admin privileges): sfc /scannow METHOD TWO (ALTERNATE METHOD): Open the Start menu Type Advanced System Settings from the list Click on blue "settings" button under "Performance" Select the Data Execution Prevention tab (far right) Select the option which reads Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select. Use the Browse button to locate the executable file for the application you were trying to start (program.exe.exe) when you received the error, and click Open to add it to your exceptions list. Click Apply or OK to commit your changes. Restart your computer Try to open application/executable again at that time. This tutorial will apply for computers, laptops, desktops,and tablets running the Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7 operating systems.Works for all major computer manufactures (Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Toshiba, Lenovo, Samsung).

It's so fucking miserable how customers have to basically reprogram their own computers just to get them to do the simplest things in Windows. Microsoft are really no better than frauds and con-artists at this stage. They're absolutely disgusting.
Bob Dillahunty (2 months ago)
@MDTechVideos Opening a god-damned folder is considered a "legacy appliation" now, is it? Oh yes, what a "valid" reason for this "legacy application" to constantly glitch. Microsoft is pathetic. That's all there is to it.
MDTechVideos (2 months ago)
To answer your rhetorical question, I would say all of the above. The only one you are missing from my perspective, please don't hate me for saying this, but the demands of consumers/organizations/enterprises to keep the legacy applications running to this day.
Bob Dillahunty (2 months ago)
Being an "open platform" doesn't mean that a computer running Windows should shit its pants every time it tries to open a file or folder, freeze half way through opening a program, freeze when you right click on something, freeze when you try to change the name of a file or folder, go into an endless loop when it's installing one of its own updates and then you have to manually shut it down, installing updates when you need to actually work on something but you can't because it's downloading one of its useless updates that are themselves buggy and will need another update to correct them, constantly overheating when seemingly not running anything, having icons randomly disappear from the tray, or having the screen setting options (screen brightness for example) getting jammed. I'm talking about BASIC functions that should work when you need them and that should have been sorted out literally decades ago. It's gross how customers have to spend any time "fixing" stuff like this at this stage. Even when customers can fix things themselves, the process is often disgutingly convoluted and concealed, and itself fails half the time beause something isn't actually there or some other problem is preventing the soution from running. It's almost like Microsoft doesn't bother completing their testng for bugs before they release their operating systems and are getting customers to do free work for them, as though customers have time for this or even want to. Oh, wait: that's EXACTLY what they're doing. It's disgusting and the result of a deliberate strategy by Microsoft to squeeze as much profit as they can. The reason Windows breaks so frequently and so pathetically has nothing to do with it being an "open platform", whatever that means. It has to do with Microsoft's shitty unaccountable corporate culture and strategy that sees customers as things to be exploited. If I wanted to go off at someone in Microsoft, who would it be? Who's accountable for this? The software engineers? The program designers? The debuggers? The corporate board? Fuck them.
MDTechVideos (2 months ago)
The problem is Windows is such an open platform, things are going to break. From a computer technician/repair perspective, they have made it considerably easier to fix problems really starting in the Windows Vista/7 days.I would argue Windows 10 includes the most options for users to troubleshoot problems on their own without needing too much experience.

why games has stopped working?
Bryan Salvador (5 months ago)
Everytime I start my pc, i'm always faced by 7 or more 'has stopped working, close the program or check for online solutions error" reminders. even chrome crashes everytime i open. what i do is i just changed the chrome executable file that which can be found in chrome folder. but on other applications, i cant do the same bcoz i have no backup of it's executable file, i cant even use it, it has become useless. SFC/Scannow has not been helpful even the DEP thing. pls help me recognize what is wrong with my pc. plsss, id appreciate your help. thanks
