Hello! Everytime an instant message or a new window fill in pops up, a warning message comes up saying Runtime C has stopped working or some thing to that effect… what does it mean?ThanksJuly 12, 2009 at 12:26 am #32129
Basically a Runtime error is a error that happens at Runtime i.e. when a program is running, simply it is a programming bug, the most obvious causes would be when a specific Program is updated, another program clashes with it or something is added to that program like for example you might add the Yahoo or Google Toolbar to your internet browser there might be a problem with it that causes the browser to throw the runtime error up which then causes the program to shut down.Might be better if you could be more specific, If the message comes up again could you write down and post here exactly what it says, the information that it displays is crucial to sorting this problem.Also tell us what program it is you are running when the error occurs, from your mention of Instant Message I assume you are running Windows Live Messenger (MSN) most likely, or Yahoo Messenger?July 12, 2009 at 2:18 pm #32130
The error shows up when I am on Facebook and some opes an instant chat. Also when I open the window that lets me listen to my fav radio station live online and and sometimes when downloading something. It never did it when I used Internet Explorer now i use Firefox. In the most common case, its in Firefox. The window banner reads: Microsoft Visual C ++ and states,Runtime ErrorProgram: CProgram FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exeR6034An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime libraryincorrectly.July 12, 2009 at 2:42 pm #32131
Got to this quite quick, I was doing my rounds through forums and got the email notification.Ok it sounds like a Firefox add-on problem maybe or some sort of external add-on like Adobe Flash based on what you describe, someone posted about this on the Mozilla Support board 7-8 months back - http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?locale=no&comments_parentId=198326&forumId=1Do you happen to have the VLC Media Player installed? You might have added the Firefox Plugin of it as well, If so uninstall VLC Media Player, then reinstall it and make sure the box for the Firefox plugin is unchecked or you could just disable the VLC Add-on in Firefox by going to "Tools" > "Add-Ons" > Then either "Extensions" or "Plugins" (where ever it may be listed) and click "Disable" then restart Firefox (Close and Reload it).That seems to be the fix for it based on what is said in the Mozilla Forum link I gave above as well as a few other confirmations in other places like here - http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r21718579-FireFox-Need-help-with-a-C-Runtime-Library-Runtime-Error-R6 and here - http://nithinpb.wordpress.com/2009/05/19/error-update-firefox-error/, but the problem is I don't know if it will affect how you listen to the radio etc EDIT: You might be alright listening to the Radio and other things you mentioned since Firefox will probably revert to defaults or might use Windows Media Player guess we'll just see how it goes for you.July 14, 2009 at 1:56 pm #32132
Did this work spikepit? Or haven't you seen or got around to this yet?No problem if you haven't tried yet, just checking back to see if it worked so it helps other people if they have the same problem.July 21, 2009 at 8:02 am #32133
