This application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click ok to terminate the application.
It will just hang on this and I can see my desktop picture but no icons or items will load. I then reboot either by choosing ctrl-alt-del and going into the Windows Task Manager or holding down my computer power button and having it shutdown that way. This is a new issue that has begun this week and am wondering if it might have anything to do with the new MS Updates that were recently installed this month (I keep MS up-to-date always). I am running Windows XP Pro, all hardware and software drivers are up-to-date.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
