The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000018) error in Windows 10


  1. Thanks for the post… one slight correction:

    On my PC (Windows 10 Home), the registry key is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432Node MicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindo­­ws.

    Just wanted to point that out, in case you can’t find the key stated in the above post.

  2. Yes, the Reg Item AppInit_DLLs had a Program File path leading to KeyCrypt, I deleted it, as advised above, it is now Empty.
    After doing a Registry hack, now, there is a new Problem, same message with 0xc0000135 or 0xc00000135 error (didn’t count characters), again restarted my PC, now the Problem is resolved, but, still keeps cropping up, on a Cold Start but, never occurs on a day, then, next day same story, again restart, then, the problem goes off. PLEASE HELP ………….
