Sometimes, Windows signals on error linked to a dynamic library called kernelbase.dll (this library links a Windows kernel with all other DLL libraries) when running Handy Backup. In most cases, this error appears after updating Windows. Here we are telling about how to repair damaged kernelbase.dll. This simple action is not related to Handy Backup and can be useful in many situations where kernelbase.dll is a source of errors or instability.
An application crash caused by damaged kernelbase is not a problem of Handy Backup but a Windows system error. It has many potential causes, from some virus to incorrect Windows update. However, you can fix this error manually, without re-installing an entire Windows or calling for assistance of tech support.
If you receive an application error (APPCRASH) message or a notification about stopping the IPIXERPWIN (see a picture below) with a link to KERNELBASE.DLL as a source of an error, then you can use some methods to fix a problem.
Please use the next instruction:
Caveat! You can do all next actions efficiently only if you are running a command line as a system administrator of this machine!
This can be a bit more difficult than the previous action. Find a computer with just the same Windows edition that you have (regarding matters of version, service pack and bit depth), download a kernelbase.dll on a USB flash drive from it, and then move it to an appropriate folder on your PC.
This move will register your transferred library in your copy of Windows. After successful registering a library, an error must disappear.
To avoid an "appcrash" error, you can restore your copy of Windows from system backup, force a system update or download an appropriate version of kernelbase.dll from some trusted source in the Internet.
Before and after changing the kernelbase file, we are strongly recommending scanning your system on viruses, as well as making a system backup and copying all crucial data from your machine to some secure storage.
We hope that this brief instruction can be helpful if you will encounter a kernelbase.dll error and will want to fix it by yourself. If you still have questions, please send us at email@example.com a letter about topics related to re-installing a kernelbase.dll library.
