Eula.exe error message

By don ·
I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate. Every time I boot up I get an error message that says

Eula.exe Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click Ok to terminate the application

I click Ok and then another dialog pops up with a message that Windows to trying to find the cause of the problem and I click close to stop that.

How can I find out what application is trying to run so i can stop this annoying "Eula.exe" message?

Don't click on 'Close' ...

That might help.

If Windows is trying to find the cause of the problem, why STOP it from doing so?

You could check in the Event Viewer for logs of what happens at boot-time (look in the 'System' or 'Applications' categories). There should be a listing there describing which program is causing the error.

Thanks, I'll try looking at the Event log.

If I don't click "close" Windows does not find the problem. It just gives me another message that Windows could not resolve the problem.

McAfee ?

Click on Start, Run and type in msconfig and press Enter. Click on the startup Tab.

Check the list to find the item that you are looking for, expand the "Location" column to see where it is loading from in the registry.

Click on Start, Run, type "regedt32" and click OK. Browse to the key listed in the "Location" column for Msconfig.

Delete the key on the right hand side only, that specifically matches that startup item. See example below.

Note the "Command" folder in Msconfig. Browse to this folder, and delete the .exe file itself. See example below.


In this example, the Startup Tab of Msconfig indicates that:

pop.exe loads from Command "C:\WINDOWS\pop.exe" and Location is "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"

Now go to the registry editor and find that Run key on the left window. On the right hand Window pane you'll see each item in that Run key, specifically "pop.exe" in this case. Delete the entry for "pop.exe".

Browse to the C:\WINDOWS folder, and manually delete the pop.exe file that resides there if it is still there.
