Hi. for a while now, my computers been acting up and its been driving me nuts. I've been having several issues over the last few years but most of them have been resolved. but for some reason, I keep getting this error message and I was wondering how I can fix it and if its been at least partially why my computer has been so slow.

 

this is the box that keeps popping up

 

Attached File  Visual C error.jpg   24.09KB   0 downloads

 

 

My OS is Windows Vista 32-bit

 

not sure if this is related, but a lot of times I will have issues playing videos in my browser. I use Mozilla Firefox and every day, sometimes multiple times a day, it will freeze up and say 'not responding' and sometimes crash. In conjunction with that, flash player crashes. I'll be playing a video and all of a sudden the video player looks likes this

 

screen-shot-2012-06-19-at-121422.png

 

and this box pops up

 

shockwave-flash-busy.jpg

 

 

if i click don't ask me again, it still pops up again later and does ask me again. lol

nothing I do fixes this issue. it just continuously happens every day when I go on my computer. its really frustating and I can't even edit videos anymore because theres so much lag and delay when I open my video editing software.

 

I would have made a seperate thread for the Shockwave Flash issue but I think it might be related to the Visual C problem.

 

If anyone knows how to fix this (Visual C) and or the Shockwave issue. I would be so greatful if you can help.

 

Thank You!

 

and if you need any more details, I'll be happy to provide them.

I see that you have Microsoft Security Essentials, but you don't have it enabled.  You have disabled the Windows firewall.  You need to have both an antivrus and a firewall running on your computer.  

 

You have Wise Registry Cleaner and Ccleaner which has a registry cleaner option installed.  Bleeping Computer does not recommend the use of registry cleaners or optimization software.  I would suggest uninstall the Wise Registry Cleaner and not use the registry cleaner option in Ccleaner.

 

Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools

 

The following is an excerpt from the article the link will open.

 

" There are numerous programs which purport to improve system performance, make repairs and tune up a computer. Many of them include such features as a registry cleaner, registry optimizer, disk optimizer, etc. Some of these programs even incorporate optimization and registry cleaning features alongside anti-malware capabilities. These registry cleaners and optimizers claim to speed up your computer by finding and removing orphaned and corrupt registry entries that are responsible for slowing down system performance. There is no statistical evidence to back such claims. Advertisements to do so are borderline scams intended to goad users into using an unnecessary and potential dangerous product.

 
Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:"

Open Firefox
 
In the address bar, type about:config
 
Scroll down to dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf32.dll and set it to False.
 
Do what has been requested and run the MiniToolBox again and post it in your topic.

I can only find this

 

dom.ipc.plugins.enabled

 

this part is missing

 

.npswf32.dll

 

 

I enabled Microsoft Security Essentials

 

and removed Wise Registry Cleaner.

 

I haven't been able to turn on my firewall for a long time. I never shut it off but somehow it turned off on its own (I'm guessing a virus did it in the past) but ever since then, I just get error messages when I try to turn it on.

I didn't run the MiniToolBox again yet because of the firewall and firefox issues.

Double click on dom.ipc.plugins

 

This will change the True to false.

Reboot your computer and see if the error has stopped.

Do you have any experience in editing the registry?

Uninstall Firefox in the Control Panel under Add/Remove Programs.

 

After you have done this, go to My Computer/ Programs, find Mozilla Firefox, right click on it and select Delete.

 

Download Firefox and see if the problem is gone.
