Edge connector cleaning pad?  I've always used the eraser from a No.2 pencil.   ;)

Good shout Jeff ,We used to use an ink rubber, If you use the cleaning pad [also] it cleans the contacts as well as the edge connector and you should not damage anything.

Hi Lipra,
No luck, sorry to say.  Think I'll have to take it to an "expert", some of my startup programs do not always load and my Carbonite online backup hasn't backed up anything since Dec 9th :o.  So I think Win7 is giving me grief also :-\ and I don't know anything about fixing that  ::).  Thanks and Happy New Year!!

did a Google and came up with this:-

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/kernelbasedll-has-caused-my-applications-to-stop/b7e4738e-2f16-4a92-b00b-bc7c2dd50ce8?auth=1

at your own risk try

Step 1: You can try reregistering kernelbase.dll and check.

 

a. Click Start and type cmd in start search. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.

b. Type "regsvr32 KERNELBASE.dll" without the quotes and Press Enter.

c. Restart your computer and check.

 

Step 2:System File Checker [SFC]

 

If still you are facing the issue, then you can try running a System File Checker [SFC] scan on the computer which will replace the missing or corrupt files & check if the issue persists.
