General Help.h1c Runtime Errors

Help.h1c file errors often occur during the startup phase of Windows, but can also occur while the program is running. These types H1C errors are also known as “runtime errors” because they occur while Windows is running. Here are some of the most common Help.h1c runtime errors:

Most H1C errors are due to missing or corrupt files. Your Help.h1c 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, Help.h1c file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading Windows, system crash while loading or saving Help.h1c, 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.

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. When you see the search box, type "System Restore" and press "ENTER".

  5. Follow the steps in the System Restore Wizard to choose a relevant restore point.
  6. Restore your computer to that backup image.

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying Help.h1c to your appropriate Windows system directory. Microsoft typically does not release Windows H1C 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 Help.h1c and all other H1C files for Windows. An incorrectly installed H1C file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
