You start or run a network-capable program in Windows Vista. Then, the program stops unexpectedly (crashes) in either of the following cases:
When the program tries to read valid data from a remote storage medium.
When the program tries to write valid data to a remote storage medium.
Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Program_namehas caused an error and must be closed. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost. Please tell Microsoft about this problem. We have created an error report that you can send to help us improve Program_name. We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous.

This problem occurs when Windows Vista cannot access a file because of one of the following problems:
There is a problem with the network connection.
There is a problem with the hard disk drive on which the file is stored.
There is a problem with the storage drivers that are installed on the computer.
The hard disk drive is missing.
When this problem occurs, Windows Vista closes the program.
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
Determine the file that cannot be opened by following these steps:
Click Start , type eventvwr in the Start Search box, and then click eventvwr.exe in the Programs list. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
In the Event Viewer's navigation pane, expand Windows Logs, and then click Application.
In the details pane, click the Source column heading. This sorts the list by Source. All the Application Error sources appear near the top of the list.
Find an event that has a source of Application Error and an Event ID of 1005.
Double-click this event. The file that cannot be opened is listed in the Description box.
Note the file name, and then close the Event Properties dialog box.
Locate the file that you noted in step 1f, and then try to open the file again. If you still cannot open the file, follow these steps:
If the file is present on the network, the network administrator may want to determine whether there is a problem with the network.
If the file is present on a removable media such as a floppy disk or a CD-ROM, make sure that the removable media is fully inserted in the drive.
If you still cannot open the file, go to step 3.
Verify and repair the hard disk file system by using the Chkdsk utility program. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start , type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
If you still cannot open the file, determine whether other files on the same hard disk drive can be opened. If other files cannot be opened, the hard disk drive may be damaged. If the hard disk drive is the problem, contact your administrator or the computer hardware vendor for help.
