What are ICM.adml Error Messages?


General ICM.adml Runtime Errors

ICM.adml file errors often occur during the startup phase of Windows, but can also occur while the program is running. These types ADML errors are also known as “runtime errors” because they occur while Windows is running. Here are some of the most common ICM.adml runtime errors:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\en-US\ICM.adml

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.


Most ADML errors are due to missing or corrupt files. Your ICM.adml file could be missing due to accidental deletion, uninstalled as a shared file of another program (shared with Windows), or deleted by a malware infection. Furthermore, ICM.adml file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading Windows, system crash while loading or saving ICM.adml, bad sectors on your storage media (usually your primary hard drive), or malware infection. Thus, it’s critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.



How to Fix ICM.adml Errors in 3 Steps (Time to complete: ~5-15 minutes)

If you're encountering one of the error messages above, follow these troubleshooting steps to resolve your ICM.adml issue. These troubleshooting steps are listed in the recommended order of execution.


Step 1: Restore your PC back to the latest restore point, "snapshot", or backup image before error occurred.

To begin System Restore (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. When you see the search box, type "System Restore" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the search results, find and click System Restore.
  4. Please enter the administrator password (if applicable / prompted).
  5. Follow the steps in the System Restore Wizard to choose a relevant restore point.
  6. Restore your computer to that backup image.

If the Step 1 fails to resolve the ICM.adml error, please proceed to the Step 2 below.

Step 2: Run SFC (System File Checker) to restore the corrupt or missing ICM.adml file.

System File Checker is a utility included with every Windows version that allows you scan and restore corrupted system files. Use the SFC tool to fix missing or corrupt ICM.adml files (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. In the search box, type "cmd" but DO NOT PRESS "ENTER".
  3. Press and hold "CTRL-Shift" on your keyboard while pressing "ENTER".
  4. You'll be prompted with a permission dialog box.

  6. You should have a black screen with a blinking cursor.
  7. In that black screen, type "sfc /scannow" and hit "ENTER".
  8. SFC will begin scanning for ICM.adml issues and any other system file problems.
  9. Follow any on-screen commands to complete the process.

Download ICM.adml Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying ICM.adml to your appropriate Windows system directory. Microsoft typically does not release Windows ADML files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing ICM.adml and all other ADML files for Windows. An incorrectly installed ADML file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
