R61 Vista error msg

2008-09-11, 1:23 AM
I have recently (August 2008) purchased  a Lenovo IBM ThinkPad R61e, preloaded with Microsoft Windows Vista Business. I have transferred only a few of my programs from my IBM R51 with Windows XP, such as Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and Canon printer software. However, I have an error message from Microsoft Windows stating the following:

”br_funcs stopped working and was closed

A problem caused the application to stop working correctly.
Windows will notify you if a solution is available.”

This window is shown at startup after completely shutting down windows. I have attempted to get support directly from Microsoft.com, but I was directed to contact the manufacturer. Can you help?

this program is a part from Rescue and Recovery.


As in this thread is statet, try reinstall R&R. But use the same version!!


Otherwise, when you´ll upgrade read the readme´s carefully and uninstall the old and then install the new version.


Another method to get rid of this message and you don´t use R&R at all, you could disable R&R from startup.


kind regards
