Hey guys,

I have a problem when trying to run Windows Live Messenger. I get a pop-up window saying;

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000034). Click on OK to terminate the application.


I have re-install the program 238953284897 times already and yet still getting the same error.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

Uh, I don't have the same error number, so I don't think that link is useful.

I also get this same error when trying to run Windows Media Player. As well as other various programs. Is there an issue with the Registry or something?

Prefetch is clickable for more information

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Reboot

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run defragmenter

Download, install and run Tune Up 2007 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Disable the anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Check the anti virus programme is running

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

Click optimize and improve then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Hm, I followed your steps and the problem still exists.

Edit: Actually, after rebooting, the error is gone.

Thanks heaps. :)
