Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). click OK to terminate the application.

Question: Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). click OK to terminate the application.

I have seen several postings on this topic, but it seems that every one is a little different, so I am posting my dilemma. I am sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place.
As of about 10 days ago, several programs will not open. Instead, I get the error window that states "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the application." As far as I can tell, this error message affects these programs: Ultraplayer, Windows Media Player, Sound Recorder, Logitech Setpoint, Quicktime Player, Real One Message Center, and Total Recorder.

My computer is a desktop, HP Pavilion a1020n. Windows XP Home Ed., SP 3. Windows updates are current. Run Avast antivirus software and usually have Windows Firewall turned on.

Here's what I've tried:
Tried to uninstall and reinstall several programs. Uninstall usually won't happen. Have tried new installs over the old, but it doesn't "take."
10 days ago - went back to a restore point. Did no good.
Have run Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy several times, including today (May 2). Today Ad-Aware found and removed a few items from the families of Cookies, Win32 Trojan Spy, and Win32 Tr\.\per Delf. Spybot found nothing today.
Have run CCleaner to clean up registry.
Ran Hijack This and saved the log. I can post it if it is needed.

I've considered reformatting the hard drive, but really don't want to resort to that.

I don't know what else to do. This is really frustrating. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). click OK to terminate the application.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sorry guys I'm new here and I don't know much about computers so I decided to post this question here in General Chat.Well this is the problem:the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application. (it pops up twice)I've researched this topic on Google and I have noticed a lot of other people have had the same problem but I think this is a special case.See, whenever I turn on my laptop on everything goes well and even gives me the option of selecting F2 to to configure things on the computer. But when I get to the main page where I'm supposed to log in this message pops up:the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application.So then I try to click Ctrl, Alt, and Del to open up the task menu but nothing happens. I noticed the keys are not unresponsive because when I click Caps Lock the little light flashes on.So please can somebody help me out with this huge problem, or is my laptop over and done with?EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forumWe'll just assume XP-MG

Hello - I wrote an application in VB6 suppose 'APP_X'. which i am running every night using a service called 'WinService_Y' running as admin user. Now in APP_X, I am using net.exe to sync time
with server.



When the WinService_Y triggers the APP_X, it gives me the error saying:

"The application failed to initialize properly(0xc0000142). click ok to terminate the application"



Okay, title of the dialog box is Net.exe so i know this occured when APP_X is trying to execute Net.exe.







P.S: This does not occur if i directly run the APP_X without using the WinService_Y

APP_X is written in VB6 and WinService_Y is in C# .net framework 2.0

APP_X is just not time sync there are tons of other things

InstallMgr.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click on OK to terminate the application.

When you click OK, it comes up once more, you click it again and it goes.

Now I've searched the net and I've seen multiple reasons people claim it's doing this, well this is not a game, it's my Digital Camera set up CD. Without it I can't run my business.

I'm running XP Home without any service packs, as last time I installed SP2 and had this problem instantly, then it started doing it to all my programs and then the PC died completely. I've got no illegal software on my pc and only recently had to repair the OS. So it's broken in less than two weeks!

Any ideas or am I going to have to reinstall the OS for the 4th time in a couple of months?

Hello Everyone,

I have recently had a very nasty virus, but that was removed some weeks ago with no more of it reappearing, so I think this is not the cause.

Today when I tried to boot my computer, I got a BSOD. It flashed past before I could see it. This is very strange. My settings tell it not to auto restart on system failure, and to generate a Kernal Memory Dump. The dump was NOT created, the BSOD kept flashing and auto restarting, and I can find no mention in Event Viewer or Problem Reports and Solutions. It is like it never happened, except that my computer would not start. I eventually fixed this using Last Known Good Configuration. I made no changes, windows updates, anything yesterday. After I found no mention, I momentarily forgot about it.

Now however, whenever I try to install software from either disk drive, I get the following error: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00000ba). Click OK to terminate the application." I click OK and the setup stops working and is closed. This happens with every single CD/DVD.

I will try a repair install if nobody has seen this before. Any ideas? Thanks!

EDIT: It is not just my DVD drives, the latest Java update just failed with the same error.

EDIT: Fixed (sort of) by copying every CD/DVD to Desktop and installing from there (that works fine).

Richard

About a few weeks ago my computer shut down because my sister accidentaly took the plug out. After I turned the computer back on it said i need to repair it. I used the startup repair and it didn't work, turning on to a black log in screen. After that I restarted it again, went to restore and restored it. It did the same exact thing when i turned it on but I actually could log in (still a black screen but I pressed enter and put in password, still black, but it signed me in). After that everytime I would try to open any programs (iTuned, Google Chrome,Adobe,etc) an error message comes up for .exe files. The ArcCon. ac error stays on the screen because if I click OK it always comes back up. The only program that works is Internet Explorere. Also, I cannot download anything. I can go to Control Panel, but when I click on Programs, then Programs and Features it won't open. When I go to System properties or Windows Updates a page loads up saying "The page failed to load". I've scaned my computer and no viruses show up. HELP ME, I really don't know what else to do.

Answer:The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click OK to terminate

Hello, go to start, all programs, accessories, right click command prompt and have it open as Admin user, then type this without quotes and notice spacing " sfc /scannow " then press enter. After it fixes what it can, hopefully this will actually run, it leaves a file of results on your hard drive which can be seen by typing this into the start , search window : Type sfcdetails.txt in Search programs and files and press Enter. You can open that in notepad and see what did not get repaired. Usually, because a good copy of the file was not found, which would mean a repair of the registry is required. Lets hope it can repair any software issues.
On the other hand , if you have hardware issues, that will take some trouble shooting. Upon restart , if you still have issues, check in Device maanger, which you would find in control panel , if it will open up for you , or another way is to type in the search pane off of the start button : device manager and open it that way, look for any yellow or red caution symbols , if you see any , right click and select update driver.

Post back results please.

Hi -

0xc0000005 is an NT STATUS exception code = memory access violation

Usually I see 0xc..5 exceptions related to 3rd party firewalls. What anti-virus package do you have and does it have a firewall?

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

Please download (save) SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) to your desktop. SmitfraudFix runs under W2K, XP only.

Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop. Select all of the contents and Extract them
to a new folder called SmitfraudFix.
Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Answer:0xc0000005 Application failed to initialize properly

Relevance 115.13%

Hi Guys,

So I have been having this issue with a program crashing and displaying a error message. Also just a note, When the icon to start the application is clicked the program automatically displays the error. So I never actually get into the application. The error message reads "application failed to initialize properly 0xc0000005" (0xc0000005 means an access violation memory error occurred)

Now this is odd because the program works on other computers(of all different types)amd64, amd64x2, Intel core2duo, Intel celeron D, and a regular Intel P4 board. All with various different rams and such, leading me to assume this is not a hardware problem.

I have tried to use the built in program error debugger in windows "Dr. Watson" to get a error log. but for some reason the program does write to the file.

If anyone knows of any common problems associated with this error or fixes for it, please let know.

-Thanks

Answer:the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)

Hello, and welcome to TSF.

Have you tried to defragment or run scandisk? You could also have a bad RAM module. If you can, try to defrag and scandisk first. If neither will run and/or you run them successfully and still have problems then my first suspect would be RAM.

You could open your case and see if you have two or more RAM modules. If you have more than one, you could remove all but one and try to run your computer. If the problem persists then remove the one that was left in and replace it with one of the modules that you removed. Repeat this process with each RAM module one at a time until you have tested all of them. If at some point the computer works then you have found the bad RAM and you can replace it.

If you are uncomfortable opening your case then download and run memtest86. If you test the RAM and have a bad module you will still have to open your case to replace any bad modules but at least you will have an idea of the root of your problem.

You might need to borrow somebody's computer at this point, preferably a PC with a CD burner. Do a google search for memtest86. The first link in the search results will take you to their web page. In the black sidebar click 'free download'. The first link will be 'ISO image for creating bootable CD (Windows - zip)'. Click that and download and burn the ISO.

Place the disk in the malfunctioning computer and reboot the computer. The PC should see it during the boot process and begin to run th... Read more

Hi all,

Few days ago my computer got the Trojan.Vundo. Norton 2003 pro didn't manage to prevent but also to remove the virus. I uninstaleld Norton and I install a trial version of NOD32. Today, I scanned again my hard disc and no threads were found. But still dll files of the Trojan existed. I went to startup and I deactivated the: kdfgj83ke.dll, mlDJwVmJ.dll and nnnlmMcd.dll files that were spoted as files of the virus. When i rebooted by pc, I received the message: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)". It appears 2 times after I login and then I can see only the background. Nothing else. I tried safe mode, safe mode with network, VGA, recover system in previous condition. But nothing worked.

I have XP SP2, 2,99 GHZ, 500MB RAM

Thanks

Answer:The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)

Why did you uninstall Norton?

I hope you realize ANY AntiVirus Utility CANNOT protect you against a virus it does not know about yet. That's why you must update your antivirus protection daily.

This is also why you are most vulnerable if you are online all the time. This maximizes the opportunity of getting infected BEFORE an Malware utility can protect you.

From you post, this is what happened to you. The virus infected your system before Norton had it in its protection file, but it did find-remove after the protection update.

Also, are you running an additional Anti-Spyware utility? You should. This is required by my Corporate IT on all desktops. In the division I am IT Tech for, I use Spybot Search & Destroy (donationware), one of several listed by corporate. I have used this at home for years, since my Win98 days, and it's well known and reliable. But note that the limitations that apply to AntiVirus utilities also apply with Anti-Spyware utilities, cannot protect you against spyware that arrives before they know about it.

To maximize your protection, do NOT stay on-line all the time. Shut down your PC or log-off the desktop. Even if you use broadband network connection, there is an easy you can logoff just like a DialUp connection.

Here's how:In Network Connections, right-click the connection and check BOTH boxes in the General tab (see the network icon in Toolbar Tray all the time)
Now drag a SHORTCUT to the network connection where you want it (D... Read more

Hi Guys,

So I have been having this issue with a program crashing and displaying a error message. Also just a note, When the icon to start the application is clicked the program automatically displays the error. So I never actually get into the application. The error message reads "application failed to initialize properly 0xc0000005" (0xc0000005 means an access violation memory error occurred)

Now this is odd because the program works on other computers(of all different types)amd64, amd64x2, Intel core2duo, Intel celeron D, and a regular Intel P4 board. All with various different rams and such, leading me to assume this is not a hardware problem.

I have tried to use the built in program error debugger in windows "Dr. Watson" to get a error log. but for some reason the program does write to the file.

If anyone knows of any common problems associated with this error or fixes for it, please let know.

-Thanks

Hello justmebeingme;

According to this link: Urgent - The application failed to initialize properly - 0xc0000005

You problem could be the Trojan "Haxdoor". It was suggested that AdAware could find and remove it.

Also suggested is to boot to safemode with networking and go to the Panda live scan web site: FREE ANTIVIRUS - Download ActiveScan 2.0 and clean your PC - PANDA SECURITY
and let Panda scan your computer and remove the Trojan.

Hope this helps!

Hi all,
 
I had an issue earlier in the week (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/601342/embedded-windows-xp-crash-after-boot/) with a PC that running chkdsk managed to resolve.
 
Once I was back into the windows environment I decided to run a backup utility.
 
However, when I tried to install the software it ran into an error during the install and stopped the installation and then automatically undid the installation.
 
The computer then hung so I had to reboot.
 
Upon rebooting the system got as far as the Windows XP splash screen before rebooting again.
 
I managed to switch off the automatic reboots and then the system reported an error with iertutil.dll
 
Via the Recovery Console I managed to replace iertutil with a good copy and now the system boots but gives me the following message box:
 
services.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).Click on OK to terminate the application.
 
However, I can't click OK as the keyboard and mouse don't work (they are plugged into the USB ports and there must not be any power on them as there's no red light under the optical mouse).
 
The very same thing happens in Safe Mode too so I can't run in Safe Mode.
 
Booting to last known good configuration does exactly the same too.
 
I ran chkdsk /r again but that didn't help.
 
Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?
 
Many thanks :-)

Sorry guys I'm new here and I don't know much about computers so I decided to post this question here in General Computer Security.


Well this is the problem:

the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application. (it pops up twice)

I've researched this topic on Google and I have noticed a lot of other people have had the same problem but I think this is a special case.


See, whenever I turn on my laptop on everything goes well and even gives me the option of selecting F2 to to configure things on the computer. But when I get to the main page where I'm supposed to log in this message pops up:

the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application.

So then I try to click Ctrl, Alt, and Del to open up the task menu but nothing happens. I noticed the keys are not unresponsive because when I click Caps Lock the little light flashes on.

So please can somebody help me out with this huge problem, or is my laptop over and done with?

Well yesterday i was normally doing stuff on my computer and accidentally uninstalled something i didn't think i needed (and I'm not sure if its causing the problem either) so it said to uninstall the program you had to restart your comp, which of i did of course. Then a error popped up saying explorer.exe the application failed to initialize properly error Oxc0000005 . I know explorer.exe is a process that shows everything like your icons and start menu and wallpaper etc. so i couldn't see any icons and had to use task manager to open FF and now I'm here typing this post.
So can any of you had this problem or can help? I would appreciate it so much

PS: the think i uninstalled was IE 8 from add/remove programs and Internet explorer from add/remove windows components

Answer:explorer.exe the application failed to initialize properly error code 0xc0000005

Answer:Services.exe - Application Error. The Application Failed To Initialize (0xc0000005).

Well...it seems to me (I may be misreading) but that system belonged to a unnamed 3d party, which had the operating license.

If I had found such system, the first thing I would have done is wipe it clean (because I don't like using someone else's data which they've decided to trash) and to give myself a good start at seeing if the system worked properly.

Then I would have done a clean install.

That's the only way that I know how to go from a series of unknowns...to a known good, working system.

Worst case scenario: The system is highly infected.

Best case scenario: The system has O/S or malware problems or a combination thereof.

Sorry to repost this, but I didn't get any replies, and I have new information about it.Ok, I have an Alienware Laptop(stats below) and I think it has an over heating problem. Because everytime I get on it to either play WOW, or The Sims 2, or anything else besides solitare or MS paint, it will run for a bit, then shut down. I have the charger in, it works, the battery is normally at 100%. Recently I've purchased a cooling pad to place under it. Another thing is, is that when it crashes, and I try to turn it on, it will almost fully boot to the logon screen, but instead it will flash a quick error message that says: "the application failed to initialize properly (0Xc0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application." And then it will turn off, and reboot itself. It will continuously loop, trying to boot and reboot until I unplug the charger. I've also noticed that it will stay on a lot longer with the charger disconnected than when it's plugged in. I'm pretty sure it's not the charger itself, but purhaps the port, because it did this with my old charger too. If anyone has any ideas, I would really much appreciate it. I can't afford to send it to alienware, and I'm sure it's the cause of my harddrive frying earlier. And even after a new harddrive and all it is still doing this.

Have also set the DEP on and off, still nothing.

Hi,

After scouring the internet for countless hours i have decided to look for help here. I have had this problem lately with a few programs, most recently sibels 5 music notation software: When i install the program, the installation process seems to go smoothly enough, but when i go to start up the program i get the error message "The apllication failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the program" Popping up twice and then nothing happens.

I have tried reinstalling the program, doing a system restore, scanning my computer for spyware/viruses (just in case:P) and running the program in different compatibility modes but so far they all produce the same original result of giving me that error message.

Any ideas on how to solve this predicament? All help appreciated.

STOP: c oooo 145 {application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0x 0000005). Click OK to terminate application. The above message is what I receive, when I run "error check". It was advised from the Microsoft website that I ran ERROR CHECK, along with "disk cleanup" & "defrag" analysis, to see if the machine needs to be defragged.I went along with the advised procedures by Microsoft, because it was said that the computer would run faster. I've been doing the ones that worked, defrag analysis, disk clean up & CC Cleaner. Along with those maintenance tasks, I update all the definitions on the malware software. With the aforementioned error message problem with the lap top, I also have a problem with Adobe Reader (listed in another topic), that I can't uninstall it, without getting a 'Error 1402' message.

What steps are you taking to run the check?

That error seems to indicate a hard drive problem, which is why it was suggested to run chkdsk /r.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system. The command should execute, before booting into XP.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Basically, when I switch on my laptop, both bttray.exe and GrooveMonitor display the exact same error(bar the application name in the title) - I have also tried to install AVG Free which comes up with the same error when trying to start.

I am running Microsoft? Windows Vista? Ultimate 6.0.6001.1.1252.44.1033.18.3066.1940

I haven't tried anything to correct this as I wouldn't know where to start.

*Sigh*, I love this section but hate to be back.

A few days ago AVG was picking up some recurring spyware and trojans, so I let it do a full system scan then reboot. The viruses it was picking up are gone, however there is still some sort of malware problem. On almost anything I open, a dialog box with the title "Rundll.exe" pops up and displays the message "The application failed to initialize properly." then some error code (0xc0000005)? Several programs stop responding for a while, and svchost.exe is using alot of memory and CPU. I see a few weird things in my HJT log and I'm hoping someone could help me out

Hello,

I get the error message: The application failed to initialize properly (Oxc015004). Click OK to terminate the application. Also, when I try to move files into folders, Roxio tries to install (O_o), if that has anything to do with anything.

I know that there can be several causes for this error message, and I'll provide any scans/info that you need.

One day, I was just listening to music and I decided to open up a game called Magic Workstation. I have been playing it for over a year now. That was the first time I got the message "The Application Failed to initialize." It also had the code "0xc0000005."

Then I restarted my computer and at startup, MSN Messenger had the same problem. When I ran DDS, there was also this problem, although it managed to still work. There is the same problem with Microsoft Word as well.

Other symptoms include a slower internet explorer.

I have ran a system restore to no luck.

Any help?

Hi. I am having issues with my computer when I try to play some programs on it, such as Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing 20 Platinum, as well as many of my son's computer games, such as Disney games and Reader Rabbit. They all worked fine before, but suddenly I get the message, "the application failed to initialize properly (oxc0000005)" and I cannot get into these programs.


I also cannot copy anything onto a disk because the DVD device does not seem to be responding.

We use the Mavis Beacon program for homeschooling and my boys have progressed in it pretty far, so I do not want to uninstall/reinstall since we will lose all their work.


Please help.

By the way, I did run Malware Bytes yesterday and it took out 6 infected files, but the problem still exists.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:application failed to initialize properly

If these games are played from a disk, and your dvd rom is giving you trouble, there you go. See if the rom is listed in your device manager without any flags.

Hello,

I have tried to start my computer which runs Windows Vista and I get this message when I try to open Browsers or other programmes.

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000002)
Can anyone please tell me the easiest way to solve this. This is the first time it has happened and nothing has changed despite me rebooting the computer several times.

Thanks

Answer:APPLICATION FAILED TO INITIALIZE PROPERLY

You can do a System Restore to a time before this happened.
If that fails, Restart the computer and press F8 until you get to the Advanced Boot menu (Safe Mode etc) Here press Repair Your Computer.
If that fails, once the computer boots, go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD icon in the search results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type SFC /Scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing files.

I am experiencing several errors on my work PC when trying to run applications like MS Excel, Internet explorer, MS Outlook...i think all the applications in my PC failed to start.
These are the several windows error messages which appears while trying to run programs:

Not enough quota is available to process this command.

Insufficient system resources exist too complete the reguested service.

The paging file is too small for this operation to complete.

The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000142). Click Ok to terminate the application.
I have this problem few weeks, as this my PC in work, it is protected against viruses with up to date Symantec Endpoint Protection. I have done several full scans, but no infection was found by the antivirus. Then I reimaged my system, after that my Pc was running Ok, but just 3-4 days. And then this occuring again. To not to forget to mention, sometimes IE, outlook etc. launch without problem, mostly just right after restart, or just random I dont know. But it is really confusing as I can't work on my PC most of the time.

Answer:Error: Application failed to initialize properly

Hi .

Well...have you read the Dell documentation for your system...which indicates how to install, the effects, etc.?

System model?

I don't believe that you will be able to do a repair install with a CD reflecting SP1...since your system reflects SP3. But Dell systems don't necessarily play by the rules of owners with MS Genuine XP CDs...which is why you need to consult your system documentation to see what your options are.

If you tell us the model, I will review the system documentation and state what I see as your options.

Hi -

Th appcrash names the faulting module as the Microsoft Network driver ntdll.dll, timestamp = 4791a7a6 = Fri Jan 18 23:32:54 2008. This is a healthy Vista SP1 driver and not the cause of the crash. The app that crashed is ProToolsLE.exe, time stamp = 472841cc = Wed Oct 31 01:50:20 2007.

The exception code mentioned is important - 0xc0000005 = memory access violation. Whenever I see ntdll.dll & 0xc...5 exception together, I look for a 3rd party firewall as it is usually the #1 cause and is most times able to get away from the scene and allows others to take the recorded blame.

Hi - I have an extremely big issue I'm facing with some applications. For a few of my applications (assuming they are all dot net) they come up with this error message "the application failed to initialize properly", twice. One of the programs are my project exe (From Visual Basic 2008) and a modelling program called milkshape 3d. They both come up with these errors (and a few more applications come up with this error as well). I ran an antivirus and it picked up nothing. This started to happen when I opened an application and apparently tweaked the registry. I tried fiddling with Data execution prevention and starting it in safe mode. Again, the errors arose.

Anyways, here are the event logs if required:

Hello folks,

This afternoon I tried printing a document from Serif PagePlus, but for some reason or other the printer's "properties" window wouldn't come up, so I quit PagePlus and tried to reopen it - and found that it "encountered a problem and needs to close". I tried opening it several times, and got the error each time, so I figured something was corrupted and I'd have to reinstall it. I then tried to edit an image in PhotoPlus, and got a different error:

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click on OK to terminate the application.

I opened a few of my other Serif apps, and sure enough, they had this error too (except PagePlus, which still crashed "normally"). Then I decided to see if it was only a problem with Serif programs (perhaps a messed up registry key that they all share or something), and opened a few other programs. Most of them worked all right, but I found that Windows Movie Maker, and several program installer executables do the same thing (the PagePlus installer, on its CD, ran all right, but reinstalling didn't fix anything).

Anyone know what I can do to fix this? Oh, and I'm running Windows XP Service pack 2. Thanks!

Answer:The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b)

I think the error message may be caused by the WORM_KLEZ.E virus, or one of its variations. If you can, Navigate to C:\windows\minidump and Zip the recent minidumps and attach them here, there labeled by date.
also think that norton might not find it, but update and run your latest anti-virus software,

I'd suggest re-replacing DfEngine.dll, as that's when the problem began, correct?

If that's not an option, you can always re-install your video game or your 'virtual demon' tools, although - I have no idea what that program is, what exactly is it? Where did you get both that program and you video game?

At some point today I started getting an application error, title says it all. "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150004). Click on OK to terminate the application."

The problem however, is that this is not isolated to one specific program. When it starts happening, it happens to any and every program I attempt to open. I can restart my computer, and it will function properly for a little while, but eventually the error begins popping up again. I can't use start>run, I can't even access start>programs when the error is up.

HELP!!

Every time I turn on my computer this come up: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click on Ok to terminate the application. I've tried to click on OK but nothing seems to happen. What should I do?

Answer:The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142).

Boot into Safe Mode and run an app such as MalwareBytes or SpyBot Search & Destroy.

The error you are seeing may also be giving you a file name or program name, from Safe Mode you can open regedit and remove any references to that file/program.

Answer:Application Failed To Initialize Properly (0xc0000022)

Hello murf and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. We are currently not using TrendMicro's version of HijackThis on the forums because it is still in beta. This means that it has not been released as a stable version at this time and could contain issues that have not been resolved yet. The most current stable release is version 1.99.1 and can be found here.In regards to the error message, that particular error is caused by insufficient access rights to the files required for the applications. This means that either the users and/or groups that the users belong to cannot get to the files they need to run the application.The HijackThis forum deals exclusively with virus and malware issues. HijackThis does not have the capability to analyze performance, hardware or application issues. For these types of issues I would suggest posting to the Windows XP Home and Professional forumThe techs in that forum specialize in matters pertaining to the operating system, performance and applications.

That is what HijackThis is used for and that is what we specialize in here in this forum.Also, when posting in any other forum for assistance, give as much detail as possible regarding any issues that are occurring. The more information they have, the better the techs can analyze the... Read more
