I am here trying to perform a full clean re-installation of windows xp. I had installed xp back again from scratch and the setup looks to be working fine. But when I try to install some application there is a error on the screen after reboot. The error is The Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). This error now started appearing again and again when I boot my system. I am just stuck with this error. I need some help to fix the problem. Can anyone help me here.
