Synaptic windows disappear after a few seconds when opened. This happens also for the Software Center. On running from the terminal it gives me this phrase "Segmentation fault" how can I fix that?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
The definition of a segmentation fault:
A segmentation fault (often shortened to segfault) or bus error occurs when the hardware notifies a Unix-like operating system about a memory access violation. (Source: Wikipedia)
This basically means that there's an error in the program's code, where the program tries to access a part of the computer's memory that it does not have access to. As this is a very generic error that can occur for very many reasons, it is hard for me to say the exact reason why this happens, and give you a solution.
