How to Repair Sysfader

The Sysfader.exe application runs in the background on some computers with Windows operating systems installed. The program is responsible for graphical enhancements in displaying animation on the computer screen. On occasion, a "SysFader: IEXPLORER.EXE Application Error" or similar type of error message may appear. The mix of Internet Explorer 7 or 8, Windows XP and enabled page transitions and menu fade effect settings causes Sysfader problems. Some glitches in the system may cause this incompatibility. By looking closely at these areas first, you might condense the time you spend in troubleshooting and permanently repairing all Sysfader errors.
