Windows 7: Applaunch.exe - Application Error

Applaunch.exe - Application Error

Hey everyone, I am having an issue with my computer right now. When I boot it up, I get an error message reading " Applaunch.exe - Application Error" and then under it, it reads: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close the application. Okay, so I click OK. After I click it, and around 5-30 seconds it pops back up again.

It does this completely out of nowhere, and I don't know what in the world is causing to do this. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

OK, this is admittedly a strange one... I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers)....
