How to Fix Runtime Error R6002

by Jason Candanedo

The Runtime Error R6002 is an error that occurs because of bugs and problems in a program that your are attempting to run. Runtime Error R6002 will manifest itself in a variety of ways in your computer, such as slow boot up times, program freezes and lock-ups and sluggish performance. Runtime Error R6002 points to a registry problem. When you install and remove programs, components of these programs will still be present in your registry system, which is an area of your computer that maintains this type of data.
