I am getting the (program) "has encountered a problem and needs to close error report with a number of programs on my PC."

It started with Outlook (2003) then Sony Media Manager and now Mailwasher Pro. I can use Outlook to send and receive messages OK and the error only appears as Outlook is closing down. My Mailwasher Pro update won’t run at all and produces the error report when I try to run it.

In the last couple of weeks I have tried to download a number of programs, some install and run OK and some produce the above error report when I try to run them.

I was able to download, install and run Media Monkey and Anvir Task manager OK. The problem seems to be with some problems and not others.

The nearest event I can think of that coincided with the start of this problem was the installation of a program called Evernote which I have since uninstalled.

Extra info: I HAVE used Black Vipers site to alter my system services and I do use Revo uninstaller to uninstall unwanted programs.

My system is Windows XP home sp3

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks

1. Do a repair install of your O/S.

2. Stop making edits which cripple your O/S.

And a third one...if you install a program and problems follow...uninstall that program.

1. What do you by mean stop making edits which cripple your O/S
2. Evernote seemed to cause a problem so I uninstalled it!
