What are activate.htm Error Messages?


General activate.htm Runtime Errors

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

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\setup\activate.htm

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


Most HTM errors are due to missing or corrupt files. Your activate.htm 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, activate.htm file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading Windows, system crash while loading or saving activate.htm, 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 activate.htm 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 activate.htm 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 activate.htm error, please proceed to the Step 2 below.

Step 2: Run SFC (System File Checker) to restore the corrupt or missing activate.htm 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 activate.htm 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.

  8. SFC will begin scanning for activate.htm issues and any other system file problems.
  9. Follow any on-screen commands to complete the process.

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

  1. Hit the Windows Start button

  4. If updates are available for download, click "Install Updates".

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve activate.htm problems.

If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.



Download activate.htm Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


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