RUNCHECK

by titomontes / March 23, 2004 9:31 PM PST

I'm having a problem with a file named runcheck.exe; everytime I start Windows it calls for an error loading some "runcheck module". I already tried to lok for it in the registry and tried to kill it with msconfig and the task manager, but norhing seems to work. Any ideas?

It can't (I have an Nvidia GeForce MX 64Mb), but reviewing those articles in your link, it does seem to be a video driver issue. I'll post the final answer later on.

Up to this date, i have been unable to find any answer to my problem ANYWHERE!; in the forum reviewed by you, there are only complaints about this "runcheck" executable.
The only interesting thing is that everyone complains about the problem when they start a 'user' session instead of an 'administrator' one. I only have 'administrator' accounts, so I'm very confused right now.

RUNCHECK redux.

It's not part of Windows XP, so you or something installed it. If you can't tell what it does, disable it and see if there is a bad or no side effect.

While you may want a documented answer, the sad truth is that this is usually how its fixed. Either remove it or replace it.

How about outlining in detail just what the first word tried means, what specifically was done, and anything else you may have done which constitutes the norhing seems to work please.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
