The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142).

I am getting this above message on every single program I run. This seems to occur after, roughly, running the computer for a day or so. The only way to fix it, is to restart the computer and, most times, I am forced to do a hard boot. I have already tried searching for an answer and nothing seems to work. One of the first things I have tried was sfrc /scannow, which returned that no files were corrupted. I have also ran MemTest86+ in order to see if it was my memory and there seemed to be no issues there as well. Due to this, I am at a loss and any help would be very much appreciated.

Also, you can find a filtered Application Error text log here: Application Error Log. It is everything related to all application posts made to the event viewer within the last hour from the time I was last forced to restart.

If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to ask as I desperately need a fix for this.

More about application unable start correctly 0xc0000142
  1. could be an application program problem. What programs are you running for a day or so?
  2. Minecraft via MultiMC and Firefox (and, on occasion, Windows Explorer). In the Background is Weather Channel App, Norton 360, Digital Persona Personal, and normal windows stuff.

    EDIT: Also, for some reason, whenever I check my Task Manager, I've noticed there is always like 4-8 processes for Chrome running, even when I don't have chrome open. They seem to open on start-up and chrome is disabled in my start-up list.
  3. If you don't use Chrome, uninstall it. Could be an memory leak problem on one of those app.
