Windows XP is an operating system from Microsoft. One of the more common problems to occur after an XP installation is an XP Runtime Error.

 

What Is an XP Runtime Error?

An XP Runtime Error usually comes up in the form of a pop up error message. A long message will usually follow with, “abnormal termination program.” If this message is being seen then chances are good that your support for the fast searching feature that comes with Windows XP is not working properly due to conflicts with the Mosdmn.exe and/or the Mosearch.exe files.

 

What Causes XP Runtime Error Problems?

XP Runtime Error problems can be caused by a number of factors. One possible problem could be corrupted files on your computer’s registry. Another likely culprit is a file or files not properly being loaded when XP was originally installed on your computer. It may also be that a file or program in the background is causing the conflict to occur.

 

Fixing XP Runtime Error Problems

As the most likely cause of the XP Runtime Error problems is probably the Mosearch.exe and Mosdmn.exe files conflicting with each other or another files, a clean boot is the perfect solution to attempt in order to fix your XP Runtime Error. However, if that solution doesn’t work, you may find that you have to update your Windows operating system.

 

Solution 1:  Execute a Clean Boot.

Steps:

  1. Turn your computer on.
  2. Click the Start Button.
  3. Click Run.
  4. There will be an open box.
  5. Type ‘msconfig.exe’ in the box.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Locate the General tab and click on ‘Selective Startup’.
  8. Clear all the check boxes you see with the exception of ‘MoSearch’.
  9. Click OK.

10. Restart when prompted by clicking ‘Yes’.

11. See if XP Runtime Error continues.

 

Solution 2: Upgrade Your Windows Operating System to Windows Vista or Windows 7

Steps: (FOR VISTA)

  1. Save all your program files to backup disks or other form of media.
  2. Go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Upgrading-from-Windows-XP-to-Windows-Vista for information on updating from Windows XP to the next step up of Windows Vista.
  3. Ensure your computer is capable of handling the upgrade.

Solve a Slow Startup with these Simple Steps

September 17th, 2011 Posted in Computer Boot Error, Computer Errors, PC Performance Comments Off on Solve a Slow Startup with these Simple Steps

 

It can be very aggravating to turn on your computer and have it take an extraordinary amount of time to startup. Slow Startup is a problem that may want to make you pull out your hair, you can fix it.

 

What Causes Slow Startup?

There are three important things that your computer needs as resources to start and to work properly: hard disk space, memory space, and processing power. The problem is the Startup items that begin when you turn on your computer also need these valuable resources. The reality is you only have a finite amount of resources that you can use for these applications, and the more you run the slower your startup will be.

 

How to Fix the Computer from Having a Slow Startup

Although there may be other reasons why your computer is experiencing a Slow Startup, the main and most likely reason is too many applications opening at your startup.

 

Solution: Selecting what is on startup

Steps:

  1. Log onto your computer as the administrator.
  2. Click the Start tab
  3. Select Run and type msconfig in the dialog box
  4. press enter and follow the promptings in the system configuration window that pops up
  5. Depending on which version of Windows you are currently using you will likely need to select the Normal startup button, and then click on the Startup tab
  6. From the list that is populated you can select startup programs that you would like to disable.

WARNING, do not disable these items without first having a good idea about what they are. Turning off the item listed as Realtex may seem like you are disabling Realplayer from starting or something of that nature, but in fact you would make your computer unable to play any sound. Turning off unused programs that do not need to start at startup and are using resources can be a great way to speed up your startup. But on the other hand turning off random items can have a disastrous effect on your computer and your ability to use it.

 

Thank you and I appreciate you visiting this site. Let me know if this information was of help, or if you need further assistance. I hope that this has corrected your Slow Startup problem and good luck.
