Why Windows Photo Viewer Keeps Crashing

Posted on Wednesday, June 20 2012 @ 18:39:13 CEST by


TechARP investigates why Windows Photo Viewer keeps crashing (on some systems with Intel HD Graphics), full details over here.
I recently upgraded to a Dell Inspiron 14R Special Edition. Yes, it's the new model that comes with the new 3rd-Generation Intel Core i7 processor. It's a ton better than the previous Dell Inspiron 14R, but that's another story for another time...

Following the unofficial power user SOP (okay, there's no such thing, but you know what I mean!), I did a clean installation of Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and loaded all the updates. Once I started to use the notebook though, I started noticing something wrong with Windows Photo Viewer - it would crash randomly and very often.

There was no pattern to the crashes. Sometimes it happens on loading Windows Photo Viewer. Sometimes, it crashes when I switch to a different picture. It can even happen if I leave it displaying a photo. It didn't matter if the photo was large (unedited photos from my Nikon DSLR), or small, edited pictures I use for my articles. It just crashes. And this is the error message that appears whenever it crashes...
