I could not find any solutions to this bug on the internet right now so I am coming here to see if anyone has a solution. This is the exact error that I am getting.

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142) Click OK to close the application"

This happens whenever I open a .exe or application type file. I cannot get into Command Prompt as it says it when I try to enter that also.

A suggestions on how to fix this would be gladly appreciated. I do not want to re-install Windows 7 on my computer because I have important stuff on my computer.

Hi :) 

There is a Virus that infects .exe files....

Run a full scan with MALWAREBYTES and Norton 2012...

All the best Brett :)

So I ran it overnight with 2 scanners running, MALWAREBYTES and Emsisoft. Removed all objects found and rebooted.
But it still did not fix the point that I cannot open .exe files... Any other suggestions?

Also I cannot do a system restore.

Do reinstall of windows over the top of the existing install to keep settings and hopefully it will correct things, if not, you will have to do a full format and reinstall.

I just did a full system factory restore but I saved all the stuff before I reinstalled it. The error didn't bother me that much and I was actually looking forward to restoring it to get all the crap off my computer.
