Windows Questions and Answers - CRHx32 Error

Joe writes in with a Windows question

Question:
Error message reads; CRHx32 has caused an error Kernel 32DLL - The computer freezes up if there is no activity after a few seconds

Answer: It looks like the CRHx32 file is crashing your system. From what I can see, the CRHx32.exe is not a file you should have on your computer. It may be virus or spyware related.

I would start by disabling it from your startup files if it is in fact starting up with your computer. You can use msconfig to disable it from starting with your computer. Find it in the list of startup items on the startup tab and uncheck it. For help on using msconfig check out our msconfig page.

Then you should reboot and see if it makes a difference. If it does the job then you can either leave it alone or delete the CRHx32.exe file from your system. Its most likely located at c:\windows\ CRHx32.exe or c:\windows\system32\ CRHx32.exe. If you cannot find it then do a search for CRHx32.exe and delete it. Make sure you have the show hidden files and folders option checked.

If it won't let you delete it then you will need to stop the CRHx32 process from running. Unfortunately Windows ME doesn't come with a way to stop running processes like XP does. You can download and install Process Explorer to let you see your running processes. If you can stop it that way you can try deleting it again.

If all else fails you can try Hijack This. It is a program that allows you to delete unwanted items from your computer. Be careful when using it because you can hurt your system if you delete things you shouldn’t. Check out our spyware page for more information and to download the program.
