I opened a word document form a business associate it prompted me to enable something, and I stupidly agreed and then just got a blank screen.


Closed and deleted the doc and email. Wish I had kept it to see what the virus was.


Since then I frequently get this message when trying to open programs but not always.


"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc00000e5). Click OK to close the application."

If I click close then launch it again it always starts.


I suspect something bad on my machine but my virus and malwarebytes scans come up clean.

Hello, more likely a file corruption and not a malware now.
Repost in the corresponding
Operating System forum up top.
Probably need to do a Clean Boot.
