Top Windows Vista Errors and Fixes

Although Windows Vista comes with several enhancements and security tools, it is quite prone to errors and problems just like any other operating system.

One of the common causes that users face while working with Vista is missing program files. This is because Vista is shipped with only those Visual Basic 6 components that are required for “It just works” compatibility with older applications. For example, mci32.ocx was used in older Windows applications to interact with multimedia devices. Now, because this file is not shipped with Windows Vista, you may receive an error when you try to run an application that requires it. One way to fix mic32 errors and other similar errors is to reinstall the application you are trying to use. Doing this will copy and register the missing files on your computer. You may also try to download or copy the missing files from another computer or the Internet and then install it on your computer.

If you note a sudden downfall in the performance of your Windows Vista computer or you are bombarded with several computer errors for no reason, it might indicate that your system is infected by a virus or a spyware program. To prevent problems due to virus and spyware, it is essential that you regularly sweep your PC for these malicious files using antivirus and antispyware tools. Windows Vista is shipped with the antispyware tool, Windows Defender. You can turn on the live update and real time protection features of this tool to ensure that your Windows Vista PC stays protected from unwanted spyware programs. In addition to Windows Defender, you can opt for other third-party tools that are compatible with your Windows Vista to further enhance the security of your system. Whichever tool you choose, ensure that you keep it updated with the latest definitions and run them regularly on the system to ensure that it is free from malicious information.

As your Windows Vista PC gets older, its registry gets filled up with loads of unwanted information that over time causes registry bloating. A large and bloated registry gets unstable and starts generating several Windows errors. Moreover, the files of a large registry fragment easily, causing the data access speed to go down. This results in frequent computer slowdowns, freezes and crashes. To prevent and repair Vista registry errors, it is vital that you perform regular registry cleanup and repair. You can do this easily with the help of a Windows Vista registry tool. Some of the tasks that you can perform using a good tool are:

  • Easily scan and remove unwanted junk data from the registry.
  • Repair corrupt registry keys to resolve several computer errors.
  • Defrag the registry to consolidate and compress its files and thus speed up your computer by enhancing the data access time.
  • Backup the registry in case the registry gets damaged due to a system error.

Although hard disk sizes have increased by manifolds, unwanted program and Internet Explorer files can still affect the performance of your computer and generate several computer errors. On Windows Vista, you can use the Disk Cleanup tool to get rid of this unwanted information and uninstall unwanted programs to prevent cluttering of the hard disk. You may also schedule the Disk Defragmenter tool to run periodically to prevent fragmentation of files on the disk.
