    Is this something I should try to fix or is it a benign problem? I am trying to fix occasional explorer crashes, so looking through the event viewer I am trying to fix several errors I see every time I boot the system. This is one of them.

    This is the only other error I get. I've searched for the current version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package, but am not sure if I should even fix it.[attachment=87494:side by side.PNG]
    This link is the newest version I can find: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en Should I install this or is there a newer version? Or should I just leave it alone?

    Are either of the above errors likely to be related to my windows explorer crashes?

    If you are using a version of Microsoft Works see Event ID 33 is logged in the Application log when you start an application in Microsoft Works SE 9 on a Windows Server 2008-based computer or on a Windows Vista-based computer. Even though this refers to Vista it probably applies to Windows 7 also. You can ignore the events.

    It can't hurt to install the Visual C++ 2008 runtimes. See Download details: Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) & Download details: Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64) for the latest versions.

    I doubt any of these are related to a Windows Explorer crash. Do you find anything else in the event log at the time Explorer crashes?

    If this PC was upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 were these events happening under Vista?

    See Event ID 10 is logged in the Application log after you install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2008. Even though it is not for Windows 7 it may still apply. You can try the script mentioned in the KB article. At a minimum, I'd create a restore point first. If you are really paranoid back up your system first.

    Thanks for the replies, Joe. Sorry it took me so long to get back. I have not had an Explorer crash since a week ago after I disabled a Macrovision software update monitor, isuspm.exe. For that reason, I haven't been fretting over it as much lately. We'll see if it keeps behaving itself.

    This is an upgrade from Vista. I did it that way in order to keep the pre-installed software I needed. And yes, I was getting those errors back when Vista was running.

    Emachines sent me two disks for my free upgrade, one of which was the actual OS, so maybe I was mistaken and could actually have done a clean install while keeping all of that software (maybe that's what was on the other disk). I may contact them and ask about that (maybe you know that answer). It's easy enough to try since I do a full Acronis image backup every week anyway, plus ERUNT at every boot. I wonder if I should revert to Vista first and re-do the 7 install. I kept the Vista restore partition.

    I may try the C++ 2008. I see in control panel that I have the 2005 version already. I'll un-install that first.

    Thanks,

    Rusty
