I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate. I've been using it for some time without problems, but this morning I was unable to get on the Internet. Yesterday I'd installed an update for ZoneAlarm which I thought was probably the problem, so I uninstalled in and downloaded and installed PC Tools Firewall Plus instead. no my computer will connect to the Internet OK, but whenever I try to open most programs, I get the following error:
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application."
The only two exceptions I've found are Microsoft Security Essentials and Internet Explorer which both work fine.
Please can someone tell me what I need to do to stop this error from appearing?
