Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime error, abnormal program termination error can be very annoying
in any counter strike version be it counter strike 1.6 , counter strike source, or counter strike online can
be easily solved my following the procedure as below:
1. After it shows Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime error, abnormal programe termination, Open Task Manager [ Ctrl+Shift+Esc]
2. Select Processes Tab in task manager and locate ” explorer.exe ” application and press delete to kill/end it as shown below, it will cause your desktop icons to disappear but dont worry they’ll be
restored in the next step:
3. then in Task manager go to the Applications Tab and press “New Task..” button and in the window that pops up, type “explorer” or “explorer.exe” without quotes.
it will bringup the desktop icons again.
5. Thats it ! now launch your cstrike.exe or hl.exe in the directory where you’ve installed your game.
