Windows Movie Maker Problems Associated With Freezes, And Crashes

By Joey McClaren

What would be the most infuriating of the Windows Movie Maker problems to compete with?

Different folks will confidently have their personal view regarding the answer to this particular query.

But, if you were to investigate different customers and users of the program, you would almost certainly hear a common refrain: most people earnestly cannot stand it when their Windows Movie Maker program crashes with no warning.

Seriously, when this takes place it is quite simple to become tremendously infuriating.

Imagine putting a great deal of effort into crafting a brilliant video file and short (or lengthy) movie clip and having the entire program crash on you.

Then again, some folks might not have to envision such a problem. They may have experienced such a terrible situation!

Would this problem wanted to be dealt with again? And if such problem hasn’t challenged you yet, do you want to?

More than likely, your answer will be no. So, here is a look at how to deal with this the solution to these types of Window Movie Maker problems.

Crashes – Causes, Problems, and Solutions

Basically, crashing of Windows Movie Maker has many different causes.

Regardless of the cause, you will see a box pop up and state that the program has suffered an error and needs to close.

As hilarious as it sounds, the answer to such a crisis would be to disregard it. This may sound like a ridiculous idea but it can work. Essentially, you could attempt to lessen the error message or just drag it and lower it to the bottom of the screen.

The error messages are an erroneous one if the program still works fine when you do this. Given, something may be wrong because of the error’s existence.

Viruses and registry errors can also be the underlying causes for this problem. Run a proper antivirus and registry clean up software and be aware of this to reverse the presence of such issues and don’t get worse.

You really do not want such grave problems scattering to the operating system where it can cause a lot of confusion.

Windows Movie Maker program can also be re installed. Doing it won’t take very long and old files won’t be lost.

It might not get rid of all the causal problems if they are not directly rooted to a concern with the program.

However, it has been known to properly deal with such problem in an effective manner and allow the program to perform in the proper manner.

Another common cause why there may be issue associated to the crashing and freezing of the program could be the existence of a corrupt or faulty file.

Dealing with the file may overturn the concerns with the Windows Movie Maker problems. How can such a course work? Here is a common instance of this and how it can:

Does the error message mention a problem with a particular file?

If so, go into My Computer and then to Manage to System Tools and EventViewer. Locate the file that is problematic and change the name.

This may seem like a overly simple solution but it might work better than you would initially be led to believe. Often, it is very simple and basic solutions that deliver the most impactful result.

Probably the most fear inducing potential reason for the problem could be the presence of errors or damage in the operating system.

The worst is yet to come if this is the case. A complete collapse is the result of a damaged operating system which means you will need a new computer!

In all seriousness, you might need to re-explore the aforementioned concept of running anti-virus and registry repair programs.

This would certainly help potentially preventing damage that might befall the operating system. Again, once the operating system is damaged, you cannot run Windows Movie Maker effectively or any program for that matter.
