How To Cope With EXE Application Errors

New computer applications are being launched every day that aim to make your lives better, faster and easier. These computer applications increase your productivity and help you complete a lot of work in a short amount of time.

It is very tempting to download every new application that becomes popular irrespective of whether it is required or not. While there is no denying the fact that some of these applications are really great, you need to consider other consequences as well. Every new program that is added on your computer puts a burden on the system resources. These new programs bring along with them a large number of executable files. This exponential increase in the number of applications and exe files increases the probability of exe errors. This threat is increased by many bogus applications that are intentionally and stealthily installed and launched to cause damage through spyware.

Listed below are some common exe error fixes that will help you to reduce the number of exe errors on your machine:

Computer users should be careful while installing high graphics programs, such as hi-tech games on their system. Certain exe errors, such as iw3mp.exe may crop up in case the program you are using is not installed correctly or there are some compatibility issues with your system configuration. To correct such problems you may need to uninstall and then reinstall the program. Depending on your system configuration you also may need to download the latest drivers for your hardware components.

Computer manufacturers like Microsoft, constantly release new updates in order to make their operating systems more secure and to add new features. While it is recommended that you update your system with the latest service pack, at times, you may receive exe errors, such as taskmgr.exe application error in case of incomplete installation of a service pack. You can fix this problem by reinstalling the service pack or by installing the latest service pack for your operating system. You can get the latest service pack by enabling the Automatic Updates option on your computer. You can also manually download it from the Windows Update web site.

As all your programs reside on the hard disk, it is important that you regularly run hard disk checks to ensure it is in good health. You can achieve this by running the chkdsk command. Next, remove the unwanted programs using the Add or Remove Program utility and delete the unwanted files using the Disk Cleanup Utility. Further, use the Disk Defragmenter tool to defrag the hard disk to make data stored on it contiguous, thus reducing the data processing time and improving the hard disk’s overall performance.

It is also important that you keep your system protected from virus infections. Malware programs, such as viruses, spywares, and adwares have an adverse affect on your system and may cause various exe errors. To combat the malicious programs, it is recommended that you use a robust security tool to safeguard your computer from such malicious programs. Also, remember to regularly update your security tool with the latest virus definitions and security updates to protect your computer from the latest malware.

Lastly, use an advanced registry cleaning tool to maintain a compact and error-free registry. Schedule regular registry scans to remove unwanted and malicious entries from it. A healthy registry not only improves your computer’s performance, but also helps in getting rid of exe errors that arise due to registry problems.
