My powerarchiver crashes



  • Hey everyone. I need help. I run on windows 7. A few days ago i uninstalled internet explorer and since yesterday my powerarchiver keeps crashing. I can’t find a solution online. in the window that appears when powerarchiver crashes it says “powerarchiver has stopped working” and when i click on problem details it says application name - Ihd.exe , problem event - APPCRASH. If anyone knows how to fix this or if i can uninstall the program and still have no problem please get back to me. I appreciate it for your time reading this.



  • I believe Ihd.exe is a spyware application!! I suggest you scan your computer with antivirus & spyware and run a full system inspection.

    Uninstalling Internet Explorer also is not advisable it can cause applications to hiccup!

    I would advise that you reinstall it and try uninstalling PA and reinstalling it too!



  • Thank you Si
    I would just like to know what is the PA you are talking about. please get back to me as soon as you can.

    I appreciate your advice



  • Sorry I use “PA” As short for PowerArchiver. And I am also refering to the latest version fo PowerArchiver 2010 available.



  • Sir Richard it appears you were right about the Ihd , it was infection, and I treated it. I shall try to download PA 2010. Will it be ok if I do not use the Internet explorer as my browser and have it uninstalled though?

    If you wish to use another Browser such as Firefox etc then I don’t see it being a problem. However, I would advise that you still have Internet Explorer installed. You can have your alternative Browser set to be the Primary one to open for all applications wishing to use a Web Browser and extensions.

    The reason why I advise to keep Internet Explorer is for system stability and security more than anything. You don’t have to keep it but from my experience it’s “advisable”.

    I also suggest you run Registry Cleaner’s and Disk Cleaners a good application to use which is freeware would be CCleaner. Run the disk cleaner and a full registry clean then run another full Antivirus then reboot when all is clear. Follow the same process until all scans can’t find anything… Why?

    Well, some Malicious applications have a backup command where when removed on reboot they reinstall. So the best way to ensure your as safe as possible is to keep scanning and ensure no new registry items or temp folders keep appearing for no reason.

    I hope this helps.



  • Sir Richard you have been more than helpfull with your advices. I would like to thank you once again , and wish you only the best.

    Best wishes
    your friend from Greece



  • you can block internet explorer from going on the internet via the proxoy settings. powerarchiver like so many softwares requies it to be present on your system
