Says something about URL not being configured properly to open or something. I'd have to wait for it to pop up again to be verbatim. Anyways, can someone help me figure out how to track down what is causing this please? Thanks.

 It sounds like maybe something has changed your home page, but I'd need more info about what it says and what browser you're running.  Next time it happens, please see if you can post exactly what it says and any details about when it happens. 


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Until you post the exact message...there's no point in speculating on its significance, IMO.

OK it just happened again. The title of the window says "Cannot start application" and in the window it says "Cannot continue. The application is improperly formatted. Contact the application vendor for assistence." And there's 2 buttons. "OK" and "Details" Here's the notepad file of the details.

Furthermore there's some processes I stopped called APSDaemon.exe and vmhost.exe that keep restarting. The pop up only happens when those are running. Not sure which of those 2 or if it's both that cause it though.

I also have the same problem. Just curious What browser are you using? I use a browser called lunescape6 that is dedicated (by me) for only 1

application. I only started having the problem after changing the homepage to that application. (a game called shakes and fidget)

 

I am going to try changing the homepage back to the original and see if that clears up the problem. I will get back to you if it works. Wouldn't

have even thought of it if weren't for this forum. And specifically WPGWPG. Thank you and wish me luck.

YES! I believe I "fixed" it. I was using a browser called Lunascape6 and had changed the homepage as I was using this browser as a dedicated browser for a game I play.

After returning to the original homepage the popup stopped. (so far) Will update you later, good luck.

I use FireFox and I have the default start page that comes with it and I belive it happens because of something called vmhost.exe that keeps starting itself up no matter how many times I close it in the processes.

Forget it! I just restored my system, so mark this as closed since no one helped me.
