The computer will not allow me to install or uninstall programs. When I try to install a program, it says: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142)."
(Therefore I was unable to install and run Defogger, DDS and Gmer so the diagnostics are not attached).
When I try to uninstall a program, it restarts Windows Explorer.
The time on the computer has also been changing, and when I try to edit the time settings, it comes up with the same error message. I cannot access other settings, including internet options, either.
Windows 7.
Thanks and hope you can help.
