  1. So I can't start up certain games, no error messages or anything just... nothing happens
    So I check the event viewer and I get this,

    Faulting application name: Flyn.exe, version: 1.0.0.1, time stamp: 0x50bdb1b9
    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7600.17107, time stamp: 0x502f7a86
    Exception code: 0xe0434352
    Fault offset: 0x0000c41f
    Faulting process id: 0x1658
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cdd4133f3e2521
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FLYN\Source\Flyn.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\syswow64\KERNELBASE.dll
    Report Id: 7d40f73d-4006-11e2-9ba4-902b34176346

    So my question is, what is Kernelbase.dll , can I fix it or do I need to re-install windows?
    As a final thought, as it just occurred to me, is kernelbase.dll the actual issue or does it point to something else?

    Any idea what your computer specs are? Kernelbase.dll could be pointing to a memory issue or a Video driver issue. After you post your computer specs, we may be able to be more specific...
