Top Tips For Troubleshooting Computer Application Errors
If you are like most amateur computer users and know little about computer application errors, you are likely to be living in hope. You hope that your computer will be spared from the wrath of various types of computer errors and issues that haunt others, even though you know better. You know that some time in the near or distant future, you might encounter a pop-up error message, an unwarranted system shut down or some other symptom of computer trouble. You just hope that it is not some time soon.
While it is good to be optimistic, a better approach is to acknowledge the likelihood of some kind of problem and prepare for it. The first step is to understand the potential sources of problems. The second step involves taking preventive steps and performing regular maintenance of your PC. The third and most important step is to know how to troubleshoot errors that you come across.
The following are some of the common causes and methods that you can use to deal with errors and also prevent them:
Outdated Software and Device Drivers: High CPU usage by files, such as ccsvchst.exe may occur if you fail to update your operating system, applications and device drivers. To update Windows and other Microsoft products, it is usually enough to ensure that the Automatic Update feature is enabled. This will automatically detect and install required updates. Many third-party applications also comprise update tools that you can use to update them. To update your drivers, you may use a good and reliable driver scanner tool.
Filled Up Hard Disk: Unwanted temporary files and other clutter on your hard disk are two of the common causes of errors, such as spoolsv.exe application error, which occurs when the print spooler folder is filled up with temporary print spool files. To prevent these errors, you may use the Disk Cleanup tool to clean your hard disk on a regular basis. Also, take some time to defrag your hard disk using the Disk Defragmenter tool.
Corrupt or Damaged Files: Errors such as the svchost.exe application error may occur if the files of the program you are trying to use are damaged, corrupt or missing. If the program is a Windows System program, such as Automatic Update, then you may use the Recovery Console to replace the files related to this feature. If the error occurs for a third-party application, try to uninstall and then reinstall this application to resolve the issue. It is essential to ensure complete removal of the program before you reinstall it again. This is the reason why, it is recommended that you use a good third-party program uninstaller tool to do the job.
Registry Errors: To maintain a healthy PC, it is essential to have a healthy registry. To ensure this, a good registry fixer tool to regularly scan and clean your registry is recommended.
Malware infections: With increase in high-end Internet connection, it has become all the more important to keep your PC safe from malware infections. For this, you must have efficient antivirus and antispyware tools on your system.
After all these preventive measures, if an error occurs, it is best that you search for a solution for the error on the Internet. More often than not, you are not the first one to receive an error. Many third-party websites and of course, the Microsoft Knowledgebase website carries ample of information that you can use to identify the cause and resolve most of the errors. However, if no information is available or if none of the methods resolve your issue, you may need help of an expert to fix the problems.
