Repairing Windows® XP
What are the common errors that you may face while using Windows® XP and effective ways to resolve these errors?
As with any software or hardware, computer users might experience errors with their version of Windows® XP. Although Windows® XP is considered to be an error-free OS, but, some errors are common to all operating systems. One of the most common problems you may face is a rundll error. There are more than 300 known rundll errors which might occur on Windows® XP. The root of the problem can be said to lie in corruptions in the Visual Basics® Library, ActiveX® files, Java™, device driver signatures and corrupt or missing command lines for program execution. Errors with Windows® XP may also occur when Windows® updates itself, installing new security fixes and program updates. Windows® XP can also show errors when there is an installation of new hardware or external devices. This can range from missing of icons, Internet browsers hang due to a failure to shut down completely. One or more of such problems can cause the laptop or computer to slow down. Slowdowns coupled with errors in the computer memory bank and registry can also cause the Windows® XP to malfunction.
Let us now look at ways to repair these problems:
- Registry cleaner
- Reinstall OS
- Seek professional help
The most effective way of repairing problems in Windows® XP would be to use a registry cleaner. Since most errors are caused by damaged or corrupted registry files, a good registry cleaner will help clean the system and remove all corrupted and damaged data from the registry. You can also use third party registry repair software to fix the issues in Windows® XP. This is especially useful if you have never maintained your computer or only do it once in a while. Third party repair software will also scan your registry, detect corrupted keys, and suggest what you can do to deal with corrupted or unusable files. These third party registry cleaners will also give you more options to fix and improve overall performance of your computer.
If you find that your computer or laptop has multiple problems causing your Windows® XP to malfunction, a simple solution may not always work. Therefore, you may find that you will sometimes need to remove the version of Windows® XP that you have and reinstall it again. Before you do so, it is essential that you back up your data somewhere before reinstalling the operating system. Doing a complete removal and cleaning the installation of the operating system might fix any existing errors present in the version that was installed.
If you feel that you are not able to repair Windows® XP by yourself, then it is best to seek professional technical help. Instead of performing something that you are not entirely sure about, do not worsen the problem. Seek the help of computer repair professionals who will analyze the problems for you instead. They will provide you with the right solutions so that you get your Windows® XP back in working condition.
