What an Application Error is
Application errors refer to any kind of error or failure
in a software program resulting in unexpected behaviour or a crash.
Application errors can occur randomly, during the normal operation of
your computer, yet most notably occur during the use of a particular
application. Nearly all application errors are often the direct
result of errors within the registry. Windows generates application
errors to prevent the entire system from crashing. The application
error allows the offending application to close somewhat gracefully
and save the system from failing along with it. These errors tend to
persist until the origin of the problem is corrected. However,
because application errors can be caused by any program for any
reason and under many different circumstances, troubleshooting
application errors is difficult.
Application errors are often presented in this formula,
is the process where the error occurred and [0xc0000142]
is a reference to the error itself. Searching the status code often
reveals more detailed information about the particular error in
question but does not often provide a helpful solution. Errors such
as these hardly ever give information that is useful to most users
and gives no other option but to force the application to close and
Causes of Application Errors
Application errors are most commonly caused
by conflicting software that is often the direct result of registry
problems. There are of course other causes of these types of errors as
well. The most common causes of application errors are...
- Conflict between two or more applications.
- Errors within the registry.
- Out-of-date drivers.
- Recent changes to important system settings.
- Recent software installation.
- Viruses, spyware, and other malware.
Most, if not all causes of application errors can be
boiled down to one of three problems: driver errors, registry errors,
or malware. An out-of-date driver may cause an
application error if the application is attempting to perform an
operation that the current hardware device driver does not support or
understand. Registry errors are often the ultimate origin of
application errors, especially those caused by conflicting software.
Lastly, application errors can be caused by malicious software
infections but this is not often the case. We have compiled a guide to manually fixing application errors for you do-it-yourselfers.
