Windows 7: Many programs 'stopped working' - what's the reason

Many programs 'stopped working' - what's the reason

Hello to all on this forum,

Some time ago I restored system and after doing that some of the programs, like Autocad, Livemail, and some other .exe do not launch. It's just said 'program has stopped working and will be closed'.

If it's about Live Mail, I tried almost everyghing - sfc /scannow, I tried repairing it, uninstalling, deleting the file where the accounts are stored and so on. I searched internet over three days and tried all given solutions but none of them worked and since then I've started to think that this might not be the problem of Live Mail itself but rather a system problem.

My question is, is it worth trying to repair it in some way that only You guys might know or it's better to reinstall windows using this upgrade option - as far as I know all programs should stay as they are, correct me if I'm wrong, it's important to me. I've got so many graphic programs that I'd rather avoid reinstalling anything.

Thanks for all help!

Thanks blue robot, however I've Microsoft Security Essentials installed and also already checked the system with Malwarebytes.
But I'll try to verify the thread you've given step by step and let You know if any of the solutions worked.

But to be honest, if Repair install seems to be safe and keeps all my programs as it's written here:

Repair Install

it'd be safest and easiest way to achieve success here, what You think ?

Yes, it would be the best option, it probably will save you time going through all the steps.

I was going to suggest it myself.

I will Blue robot, but I decided to finish my important rendering stuff before doing it. All this windows tweaking is always encumbered with risk which I'd rather like to avoid now. Give me one week, I'll post back if it solved or I will be begging for help again cheers!

Okay thanks, hopefully no problems occur during the week, and the repair installation is successful.

blUE rOBOT,

Today I had again some system problems and I decided that I've had enough.
I upgraded windows as we talked before and everything went flawless (but long, about 2,5hour)
No errors I metioned earlier so far.
Thanks for all help!
I really appreciate this.
Cheers mate!
