What are Restart.exe Error Messages?

Restart.exe Runtime Errors

Runtime errors are Shortcut Virus Remover errors that occur during "runtime". Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these EXE errors are triggered when Restart.exe is attempted to be loaded either when Shortcut Virus Remover is starting up, or in some cases already running. Runtime errors are the most common form of EXE error you will encounter using Shortcut Virus Remover.

In most cases, Restart.exe runtime errors occurring while the program is running will result in the program terminating abnormally. Most of these Restart.exe error messages mean that Shortcut Virus Remover was either unable to locate this file on startup, or the file is corrupt, resulting in a prematurely-aborted startup process. Generally, Shortcut Virus Remover will be unable to start without resolving these errors.

Some of the most common Restart.exe errors include:

  • Restart.exe - Bad Image.
  • Restart.exe Application Error.
  • Restart.exe could not be found.
  • Restart.exe could not be installed.
  • Restart.exe could not be launched. Class not registered.
  • Restart.exe could not be started.
  • Restart.exe failed to initialize properly.
  • Restart.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Restart.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
  • Restart.exe is not running.
  • Cannot find Restart.exe.
  • Error starting program: Restart.exe.
  • Faulting Application Path: Restart.exe.
  • The file Restart.exe is missing or corrupt.
  • Windows failed to start - Restart.exe.
System Error

The program can’t start because Restart.exe is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

Finding the source of the Restart.exe error is key to properly resolving these errors. Although most of these EXE errors affecting Restart.exe will happen during startup, occasionally you will encounter a runtime error while using restart. This can occur due to poor programming on behalf of Microsoft, conflicts with other software or 3rd-party plug-ins, or caused by damaged and outdated hardware. Also, these types of Restart.exe errors can occur if it has been accidentally moved, deleted, or corrupted by a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

How to Fix Restart.exe 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 Restart.exe issue. These troubleshooting steps are listed in the recommended order of execution.

Step 3: Perform a Windows Update.

When the first two steps haven't solved your issue, it might be a good idea to run Windows Update. Many Restart.exe error messages that are encountered can be contributed to an outdated Windows Operating System. To run Windows Update, please follow these easy steps:

If Windows Update failed to resolve the Restart.exe error message, please proceed to next step. Please note that this final step is recommended for advanced PC users only.

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying Restart.exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. NetParkBrothers typically does not release Shortcut Virus Remover EXE files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer.

An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
