Error message 0Xffffffff is one of the worst type of errors to be seeing on your system, as if you are seeing any type of message referencing 0xffffffff you know the pain of having a program just stop, for a reason that is typically listed in the error message as “unknown” or referencing something that does not make a lot of sense to the everyday user.
There are many different instances when the error message referencing 0Xffffffff will happen, but typically it is due to a file trying to access a file that cannot be opened at that specific time.
An example would be if the computer system is hibernating and then it tries to open a file typically related to the actual hibernation of the system, in this case there will be an error message advising that error 0xffffffff has occurred as the referenced memory could not be written or accessed.
Thankfully there are many ways that can help to fix 0Xffffffff messages on your system and have it running fast as new again. The first thing to do is to read the 0Xffffffff error and see which program or action is being accessed. In the example above the first thing to do would be to look at the hibernation program or settings in the systems.
If there were no obvious reasons as to why they would be creating a 0Xffffffff error message then the next thing to do is to check for updates or program specific patches that would fix the 0Xffffffff error messages.
If there are no updates that address the 0Xffffffff message the next thing to do is to uninstall the program and then reinstall the program. Many times there will be corruptions in the files that will cause faults when the program runs and can ultimately lead to 0Xffffffff error messages appearing.
If this does not work then the next thing to do is to run a full system scan with a system optimizer or registry cleaner. Many times these programs will identify files deep within the windows registry which could be causing any number of errors, which could all lead to a major problem and 0Xffffffff messages to appear.
