Windows 7: 0xc0000142 Problem

0xc0000142 Problem

After my computer is inactive for a few hours and I come back to start using it again, almost always, any icon that I click on, I will get the following: a message box comes up over with the text "The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000142). Click OK to terminate the application."
If I reboot the computer, all seems to be fine until it sits inactive for a while. This is getting to be a real nuisance. I have done a lot of searching in google and so far I have not found the fix. I have seen a lot of messages where others or having the same problem. I sure hope someone in the Windows 7 forums has the fix for this. I am using Windows 7 RTM (64 bit) on an almost new Dell XPS 420 with 8 gig of ram with an intel Core 2 Quad processor.

Harold76, did you see this link Sassa posted a couple days ago? I was hoping it might help you out?

Harold76, nor do I, don't use hibernation, so that isn't an issue.

I'm having the same problem, and like you I've searched everywhere and can't find the answer. I don't use hibernation, I have actually disabled it on my computer, so that can not be it. Right now I'm thinking it has to do with my external harddrive. When I left the HD disconnected from my computer for a day the problem didn't occur. But it occurs at least once a day when I have the HD connected.
