Run-time error 1603 occurs when Comodo Antivirus fails or hangs during execution, hence its name. This does not necessarily mean that the code was corrupted, just that it did not work while it was running. This type of error will appear as an annoying notification on your screen unless it is processed and corrected. Here are the symptoms, causes and ways to solve the problem.
When designing software, programmers anticipate the appearance of errors. However, there is no perfect design because errors can be expected even with the best program design. Problems can occur during execution if a certain error is not encountered and addressed during design and testing. Runtime errors are usually caused by incompatible programs running at the same time. It may also be due to a memory problem, an incorrect graphics driver, or a virus infection. In any case, the problem must be solved immediately to avoid other problems. Here are ways to remedy this error.
Runtime errors occur without warning. The error message may appear each time Comodo Antivirus is executed. In fact, the error message or another dialog box may appear again and again if it is not processed quickly. There may be cases of deleting files or the appearance of new files. Although this symptom is largely due to a viral infection, it can be attributed to a run-time error, the viral infection being one of the causes of the run-time error. The user may also experience a sudden drop in Internet connection speed, but this is not always the case.
Method 1 – Close Conflicting Programs
When you receive a run-time error, keep in mind that this happens because of conflicting programs with each other. The first thing to do to solve the problem is to stop these conflicting programs.
- Open the Task Manager by simultaneously clicking Ctrl-Alt-Delete. This will allow you to see the list of running programs.
- Go to the Processes tab and stop the programs one by one by highlighting each program and clicking the End Process button.
- You will need to check if the error message reappears each time you stop a process.
- Once you have identified the program causing the error, you can proceed to the next troubleshooting step, reinstalling the application.
Method 2 – Update your Virus protection program or download and install the latest Windows Update
Viral infections that cause runtime errors on your computer should immediately be prevented, quarantined, or removed. Make sure you update your antivirus program and run a thorough scan of the computer or run Windows Update to get the latest virus definition and solution.
Method 3 – Re-install Runtime Libraries
The error may come from an update, such as the MS Visual C ++ package, that may not be installed correctly or completely. What you can do then is to uninstall the current package and install a new copy.
- Uninstall the package in Programs and Features, locate and highlight the Microsoft Visual C ++ redistributable package.
- Click Uninstall at the top of the list and, when done, restart your computer.
- Download the latest Microsoft redistributable package, and then install it.
Method 4 – Run Disk Cleanup
You may also encounter a runtime error because of very little free space on your computer.
- You should consider backing up your files and freeing up space on your hard drive.
- You can also empty your cache and restart your computer
- You can also run Disk Cleanup, open your browser window and right-click your main directory (this is usually C :).
- Click Properties, and then click Disk Cleanup.
