This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

BEX means Buffer overflow EXception. This is a term only a programmer could love and understand, but basically it means the program tried to put something into memory it isn't allowed to use. If you were writing a program this could be due to a bug in your code. Since it's happening in Hearts.exe and other games, I suspect you have a virus. Windows is preventing it from doing something (good) but it means you can't run your games and it may be causing real problems elsewhere.

Make sure you have a virus scanner. If you don't there are some free ones available.

Make sure your virus scanner is up to date. If your subscription has expired, renew it.

Run a full virus scan and correct all the problems it finds.
