CN1000.INI file errors often occur during the startup phase of Windows, but can also occur while the program is running. These types INI errors are also known as “runtime errors” because they occur while Windows is running. Here are some of the most common CN1000.INI runtime errors:

Most INI errors are due to missing or corrupt files. Your CN1000.INI 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, CN1000.INI file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading Windows, system crash while loading or saving CN1000.INI, 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 CN1000.INI 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 CN1000.INI 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 CN1000.INI error, please proceed to the Step 2 below.

Step 2: Run SFC (System File Checker) to restore the corrupt or missing CN1000.INI 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 CN1000.INI 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.
  5. In the box, click "YES".
  6. You should have a black screen with a blinking cursor.

  8. SFC will begin scanning for CN1000.INI issues and any other system file problems.

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve CN1000.INI problems.

Download CN1000.INI Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying CN1000.INI to your appropriate Windows system directory. Microsoft typically does not release Windows INI 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 CN1000.INI and all other INI files for Windows. An incorrectly installed INI file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
