This video presents two possible solutions to the common issue of a program crashing or “has stopped working” on a Windows computer.

In a elevated command prompt (admin privileges):
sfc /scannow

Open the Start menu
Type Advanced System Settings from the list
Click on blue “settings” button under “Performance”
Select the Data Execution Prevention tab (far right)
Select the option which reads Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.
Use the Browse button to locate the executable file for the application you were trying to start (program.exe.exe) when you received the error, and click Open to add it to your exceptions list.
Click Apply or OK to commit your changes.
Restart your computer
Try to open application/executable again at that time.

This tutorial will apply for computers, laptops, desktops,and tablets running the Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7 operating systems.Works for all major computer manufactures (Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Toshiba, Lenovo, Samsung).
hello everyone how are you doing this is mdtech here of another quick tutorial today I'm going to be showing how to fix an executable that keeps crashing whenever you try and open up an application so there's two methods to trying to resolve this issue the first one would be to open up a command prompt so I'm going to type in CMD I'm going to right click on it and it has to be run as an administrator and click on yes so now what I'm going to type in is SFC space forward slash scan now this will do is it'll be ready in to perform a system scan this will take some time once this is done restart your computer and try to see if the application is working at that time if it is not what we would do is we're going to head over to our Start menu once I have been advanced system settings we're going to go under that now we're going to open up a system properties window here and the first window or first tab that we are going to be under is performance we're going to left-click on the Settings button under performance options go to the far right tab here where it says data execution prevention and then select colonel and dep for all programs and services except those I select to this point you would go click on add and then actually go through the computer and try and find the executable that you are trying to launch on successfully so you go back into Program Files and hopefully in there you would have your program and you have an executable file which you weren't able to launch so at that point you would just select the file click OK once you have the file here and then you click on apply and okay and you have to restart your computer and hopefully that method should work if the first method does not work for you so I hope this tutorial helped you guys out and I will see you in the next video goodbye

  1. I Had My Computer about a Year. never had Trouble until now

    I have Notice my Task Bar Frozen and can't do nothing with my with apps and Icons And my Task manager having Trouble Responding and then Freeze or Crash.

    I'm Unable to access my Work space and Settings because my Task bar is Frozen .

    I can get some access to Programs Like Google Chrome and other Programs .But i can't access to any of my Windows 10 Applications Also i'm unable to Download any winrar flies off form the Internet because it will show Message like Failed – Insufficient permissions In my downloads.

    Sometimes the whole Desktop Screen crashes turns Black and explorer.exe Restarts itself its like i been Ban form my own Computer any suggestions ?

  2. Neither Turn on DEP for essential Windows or Turn on DEP for all programs were checked. And I was not able to select either one. I clicked on the all programs but it would not check??????????????

  3. It's so fucking miserable how customers have to basically reprogram their own computers just to get them to do the simplest things in Windows. Microsoft are really no better than frauds and con-artists at this stage. They're absolutely disgusting.
