Did an overnight backup on my Win7-64 hpdv2 notebook.  This morning, was greeted by the message:
 
“The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022); Click OK to close the application” 
 
Bottom line, after several hours of flailing, I was able to do a System Restore, and got the computer working.
 
Noticing that a Windows update was waiting, I launched that.  It was a 150 MB update.  At the end of the update, a restart was required.  So, I restarted and  got....
 
“The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022); Click OK to close the application” 
 
I've just done another System Restore and the computer is working again.  Therefore, clearly, the latest Win 7 Update has some kind of fatal error in it -- at least for my computer.
 
Here are some of the things I tried that did not work:
  • Going to SafeMode - all I got was a BLACK screen with SafeMode in the corners but nothing else showing.  The SafeMode solution on the net and advises you to reload a set of drivers or DLL's.  But you can't do that with a blank, black SafeMode screen.
  • System Repair, using the Repair disk
  • System Restore DID NOT APPEAR TO WORK - got an error message in Repair Disk mode that the restore was not successful and the system had not been rolled back.  However, I accidentally triggered a restart after the "unsuccessful" restore and it turns out that the restore DID work.  The system had been rolled back!
    Further, on the second use of the Repair Disk, I got the same "unsuccessful" restore, but the computer was restored.
I've turned off Windows Automatic Update, hoping that MS will fix the problem.  I hope you don't run into the same problem.

Your suggested link could be right on!  It points to one of MS's security updates as the cause of the disaster.  Sure enough, in the updates that were in the installation queue was that specific update KB3022345.  To determine if that was the problem, I will do the update without ..2345 to see if the problem is solved.  If there are any postings by folks with my problem, I'll do that soon.

To do it right, one should install the updates one at a time until the problem appears -- but that would take hours.
