We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


We must first download the process explorer and run the application as administrator.

Step 2:

We must now activate the bottom panel. Click the View menu Menu then View Lower Window Window or simply press Ctrl + L.

Step 3:

The next part is a bit difficult. Select the program that has closure problems. Now look through the bottom panel. You will find some handleshandle, Handles are open file references of a certain program.

Ignore the references of the application itself, for example Outlook, which remains blocked in the task manager after closing. In this case, you can ignore Outlook. entries

You must search for other references of third party applications related to the Team Viewer. If you are not sure, you can simply right-click on the reference and close the handle to see if the.exe disappears from the list. If that’s the case, you found who did it. If not, keep looking because in some cases there will be a lot of references.

I know it’s a bit hard to find. But monsters know it’s really fun to fix bugs – just like Sherlock Holmes liked to solve a case.
