After a program is closed, Vista informs that the program has stoppedworking. Huh?

    After I close Paradox for Windows, Vista pops up a dialog every time
    informing me that the program has "stopped working".

    "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly."
    ....

    How does one stop this message occurring?

    Thanks.
    Raymond.

  2. Click Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Problem Reports and Solutions

    Check if there are any logged solutions. I would also ensure that Service
    Packs and Updates have been applied for Paradox. I know that Corel released
    an SP that enabled compatibility for WordPerfect Office under Vista, but
    this was for version 13.

  3. I get a similar thing quite frequently on my system and my wife's system.
    That is, when we start up the computer I get a message telling me that
    Windows Explorer has stopped working correctly.......and it hasn't even been
    opened. Go figure!
    Doesn't happen every time, but every once in a while. And, yes, my system
    did close down properly.

  4. Of course Windows Explorer is open. It's the shell that interacts with you
    for everything you see on the screen. Did you try Andre's solution?

    I tried Andre's solution, but no change.
