Hi Tripn,

That's the name of a file that has gone AWOL by the sounds of things, not an error code. Windows error codes take the form of letters and numbers looking like this: 0x80004005.

Does the system boot up normally, or does this occur on start up? Is it just when running this "repair shop" program (if so, what is the program called?)?

Run up a Command prompt as Administrator and enter the following command:

sfc /scannow
It will scan the system and replace any files it finds that are corrupt or out-of-date. You may need your Windows 8.1 install disk to hand if it finds anything.

Failing that, or in addition, try this command (also from a Command prompt as Administrator):

dism /Online /Cleanup-image /RestoreHealth
This will check the health of your system online (so you'll need to be on the Internet) and fix anything it finds.

Let us know how it goes!

If you don't know what eschatology is then don't worry; it's not the end of the world.

In your search box (above the start button) type cmd, you'll see the results where cmd.exe, right click it and left click run as admin.


Your in !!

Well I was able to reload the program but it has lost all the customer names for the year.


Thanks for your help

Thaqt's odd as files are generally saved unless you choose to eliminate them with uninstall and reinstall. You might try using the search box for the name of this program which you have still yet to tell us.
