Issue: How to Fix Runtime Error R6025 on Windows?

I am using Windows 8.1. When I try to run Internet Explorer, I receive a runtime error R6025 that informs about “pure virtual function call.” This error does not show up every time, but once in a while, it appears. How to fix this error?

Solved Answer

Runtime Error R6025 or “Runtime Error R6025 Pure Virtual Function Call” warning might appear when particular programs or processes are forced to stop.[1] This error is often related to the Visual C++ framework and occurs due to the missing particular components or incompatibility with third-party software.

This error message informs that particular program tried to call a “pure virtual function” but the call wasn’t valid. We can illustrate this case with an example. Imagine that you are playing an online game and the server is down. In this case, your computer might deliver a runtime error message.

However, in general, this Runtime Error R6025 informs that particular program is corrupted and cannot perform. Besides, just like many other Windows issues and errors, this one might also be caused by the problems with Registry. Thus, Runtime Error R6025 might be triggered by some incorrect modifications in the Windows Registry.[2]

How to fix Runtime Error R6025 on Windows

Computer users are not advised to modify the registry themselves because it’s easy to cause more damage than good. It’s better to fix Registry or system files using reputable software such as Reimage. This program also indicates useless or possibly intrusive apps.[3] 

This error might show up when developing the program. Thus, this message might inform the developer that there are some mistakes left in the code or some functions need to be fixed. However, depending on how the program’s code has been written, this error might not show up during the development stage. Runtime Error R6025 might appear at run-time.

For some reasons, users install applications that have bugs or various issues that trigger this error. Therefore, regular computer users who came up with this error, just have to uninstall the program and install the latest version of it.

Prevent websites, ISP, and other parties from tracking you

Private Internet Access is a VPN that can prevent your Internet Service Provider, the government, and third-parties from tracking your online and allow you to stay completely anonymous. The software provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, ensuring optimal performance and not slowing you down. You can also bypass geo-restrictions and view such services as Netflix, BBC, Disney+, and other popular streaming services without limitations, regardless of where you are.

A VPN is also crucial when it comes to user privacy. Online trackers such as cookies can not only be used by social media platforms and other websites but also your Internet Service Provider and the government. Even if you apply the most secure settings via your web browser, you can still be tracked via apps that you are connected to the internet. Besides, privacy-focused browsers like Tor is are not an optimal choice due to diminished connection speed.

Therefore, to stay completely anonymous and prevent the ISP and the government from spying on you, you should employ Private Internet Access VPN. It will allow you to connect to the internet while being completely anonymous, prevent trackers, ads, as well as malicious content. Most importantly, you will prevent the illegal surveillance activities that NSA and other governmental institutions are performing behind your back.


Recover your lost files quickly

Unforeseen circumstances can happen at any time while using the computer: it can turn off due to a power cut, a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) can occur, or random Windows updates can decide to reboot the machine when you went away for a few minutes. As a result, your schoolwork, important documents, and other data might be lost.

Additionally, you might also be attacked by malware that can corrupt your Windows or encrypt files with a robust encryption algorithm, and ask for a ransom in Bitcoin for the decryption tool. Cybercriminals might not deliver what they promised, however, so it is better to attempt alternative file recovery methods that could help you to retrieve at least some portion of the lost data.

Data recovery software is one of the options that could help you recover your files. Once you delete a file, it does not vanish into thin air – it remains on your system as long as no new data is written on top of it. Data Recovery Pro is recovery software that searchers for working copies of deleted files within your hard drive. By using the tool, you can prevent loss of valuable documents, school work, personal pictures, and other crucial files.
