Windows 7: 0xc0000142 error svchost.exe unable to start when trying to restart

0xc0000142 error svchost.exe unable to start when trying to restart

I've been googling and browsing forums for the last several hours and have not found my exact error.

The only time I'm getting the error svchost.exe unable to start error 0xc0000142 error is when I'm trying to shutdown and reboot. Windows 7 will force a restart, and after a while will eventually close the error window (x'ing out of it does not work, nor does clicking ok), and reboot, and all seems fine otherwise, but it's beginning to really bug me. I've tried just about all the fixes suggested, and have cleaned and recleaned my registry and run other diagnostics, and everything looks okay.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
carl

Did the trouble first start after you had cleaned the Registry? Did you use CCleaner ti clean it or some other utility.

I've had the problem for a few days in addition to the computer not performing very well, so the problem existed prior to cleaning the registry.

I cleaned the registry with Glary Utilities.

I downloaded CC Cleaner and cleaned some more stuff up, but I still have the problem.

That error message is "STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED", so a .dll on the system that was required to load the process didn't load. It might be time to run sfc /scannow from an elevated cmd prompt to validate all Windows binaries on the system are in a consistent state.
