Fault Module Kernelbase.dll Application Crash

» I have several programs that seems to be in some conflict with kernelbase.dll. They crash the moment I start them and kernelbase.dll is the fault module.

» Often an early indication that something is amiss is an error message informing you that an application is "not responding"—as if you hadn't figured that out already. But this can be taken as a positive sign, because it means that Windows Error Reporting is going into action. Windows Error Reporting is a feature that can report problem information to Microsoft.

Windows Error Reporting has been streamlined and improved in the most recent versions of Windows. In Windows XP, the system was essentially manual; when an error occurred, you were invited to send a report to Microsoft. Following up an error report to see if a solution had become available was a cumbersome, discouraging process.

Not all the problems you might encounter relate to calamitous events such as those that cause Windows Error Reporting to spring into action. To address a wide variety of other types of problems, big and small, Windows 7 includes a library of troubleshooting wizards. You can see a list of them by opening Action Center and clicking Troubleshooting.

KernelBase.dll error can be fixed either by re-installing the associated program and then reboost your computer. You can also simply copy the same KernelBase.dll file from another same operating system and replace the missing/broken file. However, due to the nature of your computer environments, the KernelBase.dll related Registry entries may have been invalid/broken or even infected by malware(Backdoor:Win32/PcClient.BX) or virus, leaving the KernelBase.dll error messages unresolved.

Please download DDL Suite to fix KernelBase.dll error and remove the infections with built-in feature.

    Log in as a different User. rename the problem profile. Log in as the original user again. A new profile will get created. If the crash is gone, copy your over your user data from the corrupted one.

    If it does not solve the issue. Repeat steps with default folder too. This is the template profile, when creating new profiles.

I had the same problem with a custom VB.Net application, framework 2 running on Windows 2008 x64. Compiling for x64, x86, or Any CPU didn't work, neither did re-adding the Excel COM object or other resources or setting the compatibility mode, or any of another half dozen things I tried.

    >Finally, I set the .exe file properties to "Run as Administrator" and wallah - everything runs great! I suspect there are embedded security or other settings that are the ultimate cause.

Next I created a new profile and copied the old profile data to the new as suggested. The new profile worked fine without errors but I had to re-register with a lot of my programs and games and change a lot of pointers to the area were I store all my pix, docs, videos, game saves and such so all of users can see the files and I can back them up En-mass.

How do I determine if this is being caused by the User ID corruption that was proposed earlier or if there's another problem. iTunes is the only casualty that I know of and it usually takes a couple of hours to crash.
