Crash on run with some Windows apps

Recommended Posts

This morning, my Windows Live Messenger 9 had a funny freeze and crash... Now IE8, WMP12, WLM, and Windows Live Setup will all crash when run with the "app has stopped working" dialog.

I've tried running IE in Safe Mode (which works until I try to connect to the internet by loading a webpage). I've disabled every addon, to no effect.

I've run System Restore to a known working time, to no effect. :wacko:

Anyone seen anything similar?

Interesting... CCleaner caused it when I ran the Registry cleaner. Restored a backup copy that was made by CCleaner and is now fixed. :yes:

Or not... It is broken once again, and running the same registry fix doesn't help... On closer inspection all the registry file contained were file type associations.
