Game.exe blocks everything as I start the game


Sherlock Holmes against Jack the Ripper game, I installed and when I click play it says game.exe has stopped working or when you insert the real Sherlock Holmes DVD. Pleaaaaase help!


Well, we can use additional information regarding your system.  What version of level pack Windows\service are you running?  What is your basic hardware configuration (cpu, ram, video...)?

However, without this information, there are a few things you can try.  The first thing would be to click with the right button on the .exe for the game file and select run as administrator.  If this does not help, then you can right click on the .exe file and choose the Compatibility tab and set it to an earlier version of Windows.

If those who do not help, then I suggest that you contact the manufacturer of the software for further assistance.  Here is their contact page or visit their forum pages that maybe that's already a problem they know. Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

  • Satellite M70-148 - ATI driver blocks everything in windows starts


    Strange thing, when I start windows xp, the windows on the slider blocks

    I have a Mobility Radeon x 700 graphics card in the Satellite M70-148.
    I have seen that it is the graphics driver that gives the problem

    I have restore dvd toshiba with the same problem.
    I was on the site to download the latest driver maybe again the same problem

    I went to AMD for another driver, again the same problem.
    The only rider agreed to work is the driver of windows, but the quality is not top (max resolution 1024-768)

    In safe mode no locking

    I also upgraded the Bios without result (and I don "t want to replace the motherboard)

    An idea for the other driver for better work

    Thanks for any help

    Hi mate

    It is difficult to say what issue it could be
    You said that the graphics card a few worries and the laptop does not event after using the Toshiba recovery.

    That s weird. This means that there is something wrong with the hardware in your case perhaps the problem of graphics chip :(

    But without a hardware test it is really not easy to say what part has been affected.
    I think you should contact the technician ASP pourrait test the laptop, check the motherboard and might be able to provide more details
    Then you could decide what to do

    Hi leondsouza,

    1. What is the exact error message that you receive?

    2. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    3. do you have security software installed on the computer?

  • Firefox window blocks everything else on the computer screen

    for some reason, the FF window now blocks EVERYTHING else on my computer screen. for example, if I open a PDF file, it opens BEHIND the screen of FireFox. normally the PDF file would be open, and in the new window on my screen, hide at least a portion of the FireFox window. no more. If the FireFox window is open, it blocks everything on my screen. even when I click on these glazed elements, FireFox remains visible and above them. It is a serious problem, because it basically means that I have to close my browser when doing anything with other applications on my computer screen. which, of course, is not realistic and will force me to start using another browser.

    Eagle supreme said

    reinstall your browser. but still why is this a problem, you can open them in the toolbar at the bottom of the scree with a single click.

    No, for some time nothing worked. If FF was open, the thing any blocked FF window on the computer screen. you could click on something else and he would still be blocked by the FF window.

    but I went to the control panel and set the window again and properties file to "default" and everything back to normal.

  • Programmatically move EXE file to RT-target and change the INI to start the EXE when restarting. Then the target restart RT.

    I'm trying to:

    1. download the rtexe on the target in real time
    2. download the file or - rt.ini of the RT target on the local disk
    3. change the RTApp.StartupApplication path to POINT to newly downloaded rtexe
    4. download the ini file edited to target RT
    5 reset
    6. the new rtexe should start to run

    When manually deploy the application of RT through the Project Explorer and manually restart the target RT works very well.

    However if I follow the steps above using the attached VI, to restart it does not start the EXE and loses the connection with the RT.

    When I try to reconnect, he said:

    "Errors were detected in the log of the target when connecting to the target:

    LabVIEW: (Hex 0x63B) target the RT has not enough memory to load the startup application. »

    Now why is there enough memory when the EXE is deployed through the Project Explorer, but not enough when the EXE file is moved manually?

    If there is an easier process or to achieve this goal, please suggest.

    Thank you

    Problem solved.  Problem was never in the INI file.

    Apparently using FTP "FTP Store" used to move the file EXE to the rt to intimidate target must change the file somehow. Instead I just use the FTP "Put several" and everything works fine.

  • Whenever I start the system complains that the following files are missing, c:\\Windows\System32\igfxpers.exe, igftray.exe and hkcmd.exe.

    Original title: files missing error

    Whenever I start the system complains that the following files are missing, c:\\Windows\System32\igfxpers.exe, igftray.exe and hkcmd.exe. Everything started after I ran scan and scan deleted some files infected. However, I can use the system. Where and how to download the missing files? Or how the system does not deliver messages?


    Two of the three files are probably part of the malware infection and not the files infected. The third is probably the same details in this link:

    To identify what loads when you start using Autoruns (freeware from Microsoft).

    With Autoruns, you can deselect an item which disables startup, or you can click with the right button on an item, then remove it. If you clear the check box that you can check back for re - activate the element. It is an approach much safer than editing the registry and better than using msconfig. You will find the three points and they will have a description 'file is missing' against everyone. Your antivirus software has removed the files, but not the startup entries in the registry. All you need to do is delete the entry using Autoruns to eliminate the error messages.

    Another useful feature of the program is that you can click with the right button on an item and select search online to get information about the selected item.

  • Satellite P200-1AE (PSPBOE) - error Winpeshl.exe if I start the laptop

    When try to start in safe mode or repair (F8), I get a window named winpeshl.exe and black screen.

    Help, please?


    Winpeshl.exe file seems to have something to do with the Windows PE (protected environment).

    Here is an information on Windows PE (protected environment).

    Windows preinstallation environment (Windows PE) 2.0 is a minimal operating system Win32 with limited services, built on the Windows Vista kernel. It is used to prepare a computer for Windows installation, to copy images from a network file server disk and start the installation of Windows.
    In my opinion, you should try to restart the operating system in safe mode.
    After that the laptop has been turned on, press F8 and choose some options.

    In the worst case, you might choose the first option called repair my computer and could start the Toshiba HDD recovery that would reinstall the whole OS.
    But this would format the HARD drive and you will lose all files stored on the HARD drive.

  • Satellite P300D blocks everything by playing games

    Hey all,.

    I have the following problem with my P300D. I installed Win 7 32 Bit a week ago and it has worked well so far.
    But now, every time I play a game it crashes at the end of 40 minutes or an hour.
    I should mention that these games worked fine on Vista before.

    Well the thing ist, that I have no blue screen or something, he just goes off. I can't, and then start the laptop for a minute or two.
    For me, it seems that prevent to do not overheat. But I have no idea what this might be. It is possible that Windows 7 is the issue (got the latest graphics drivers, also update the BIOS) or is it perhaps CPU Cart ATI goes too hot? His only breaks down while he was playing, I can work on the PC with other software for hours and nothing happens.

    IM really out of ideas so I'll be grateful for any assistance.

    Hey forecast.

    Looks like your laptop is overheating. If the laptop overheats it fate often without reason (blue screen for example). It's my experience
    I would recommend so clean the laptop with a jet of compressed air. He could blow the dust from the cooling fans and this should be done to leave in time. Compressed air spray isn't expensive, it costs only a few dollars and you can get it from every computer store.
    Check this box!

    In addition, it would be interesting to know what display driver you have installed. No Toshiba display drivers are often cause problems because they don t have an overheating protection in order to check the Toshiba page for a new display driver.
