Fix Run Time Error Notifications & Solutions

One of the most annoying things about error notifications is that, unless you’re a seasoned techie, it can be almost impossible to know what’s actually wrong with your PC. Today we’ll be looking at the much-hated but little-understood run time error notification. And we’ll also be looking at ways to help make sure they leave you and your PC alone for good.

What is a Run Time Error?

Basically, a run time error is an error that occurs during the time in between starting and ending a program. When you start, say, your internet browser, the program is then “running” and it is only supposed to stop running when you end the program. That sphere of space is known as the “runtime.” So, if an error occurs during your runtime, it is naturally called a runtime error. Obviously, this means that these kind of errors are somewhat vague, and so Microsoft gives each error a specific code which lets you look up the problem and fix it. But more on that later.

How Do They Happen?

Usually, the reason for a runtime error is because Windows is not working properly. Sometimes the Registry is to blame, while other times it is because a certain update is needed. Old drivers can also be to blame when a runtime error occurs. In most cases, the problem can be traced back directly to your PC or your operating system. But, as luck would have it, all of these problems are very easy to fix and cost virtually nothing.

How do I Fix Runtime Error Notifications?

You could look up the error code online and try to solve the problem manually, but this isn’t recommended unless you are very confident in your skills. Monkeying around with diagnostics that you don’t understand can permanently damage your PC. Besides, most of the time the Registry is to blame and this is a much easier problem to deal with. You’ll want to scan and clean your Registry with a product like PC Health Advisor or a similar Registry cleaner. This will ensure that all of your fragmented files and useless data is removed. In most cases, this should help to rid you of the constant error notifications. You might also wish to scan your drivers to make sure that they’re all up to date. Once both of these steps are taken, the odds are good that you’ll be free of these pesky errors.
