Having problems with your Microsoft Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings for Windows ?

Age of kings stopped working

\015 When i try to start age of kings i get a message saying that it has stopped working. Have tried compatability settings.. Help please!\015

Answers :

I've been dealing with this issue for several days.

Age of Empires 2 has stopped working. Windows Event Viewer error said that Security Device Driver could not start because an attached device malfunctioned. Do this- Note the time and try to launch AOE. GoTo Event Viewer (start/search/event viewer) Select windows logs. To help pinpoint look at errors in Application, System, and Security. Using the time stamp as a guide. My problem was in the security section. It said that I had a bad hash mark in the C:\\Windows\\System32\\Drivers\\secdrv.sys file. Which could mean virus or a damaged file. No virus. So I renamed that file to secdrv.old.sys. Went to a working PC and copied that secdrv.sys file to a flash drive and pasted it back in c:\\windows\\system32\\drivers folder on the problem machine. Rebooted and all is well ! I hope this helps a lot of you out there, it's been a very frustrating road for me too!
