My friends Windows 7 professional 64 bit computer has several problems.
When he starts it up he gets the following message:
TP-Link Wireless configuration Utility.
TWCU.exe The application was unable to start correctly
status: (0xc0000005) To close the application click OK, it closes alright.
But if he wants to start any other program, he gets the same message, but with the programs name. Or if he wants to install another program, Google Chrome, for example, he gets the same message
But, Microsoft programs start just fine, Except Internet Explorer 10 which starts up but nothing loads in the frame and after 30 seconds it closes.
I suggested reinstalling Windows, but he does not have the Window's CD nor any recovery CDs. Also there are no prior restore points.
I downloaded Ms. Windows offline Defender. Burned it on a CD and ran a scan with it. But it came back clean. Is there any hope for this computer? Any ideas?
