  1. So this is happening a lot.
    when I try to open some programs (nothing specific; games, programs, etc.) it will give me a "etc stopped working" message, and when I press for details, it tells me kernelbase is responsible.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Get your install CD, open a command prompt and enter
    SFC /SCANNOW

    Most of the postings re issues with kernelbase are related to the
    .Net V* stuff - - just another proprietary scripting tool from Microsoft.

    UNINSTALL all of the .Net items in control Panel->Programs and reboot.

    If you have programs that actually need .Net V*, you will soon discover that and can reload whatever library that program complains is missing.
