Typically, the 5004 0X7E error code is caused by misconfigured system files that are causing registry errors on your operating system. Windows errors can lead to program crashes, slow PC performance, system crashes, computer freezes, etc.
Registration errors usually occur when new programs are installed over older programs without completely removing the old programs. This can lead to registry collection and error messages. Another possible cause of these error messages could be malware such as adware, spyware, and viruses.
