Error when opening certain applications: 0xc000007b RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I open some applications or games on my Windows 7 computer I get the error message 0xc000007b.

    This doesnt happen with all applications but it happens to some that I used to use a lot.

    I'm hoping that I could get a response to a way that I could get this fixed, as it has been going on for awhile and it is really starting to bug me.

    If you don't have an answer please don't respond to this saying you have the same problem as this is not a discussion and I really want to get it fixed.

  • I have become aware that it is actually a memory error in my system and that it is not resulting in fualty installation of a application. A system-state restore will not work as this could have happened in the first few weeks of having my computer and I didn't notice it until I tried to open a certain application. I do not believe I have a System restore point far enough back. I will try to re-Install windows and hopefully that re-installs the missing files. If it does not I will reply to this afterwards. Thanks for the help though.
    Do it the right way!

  • Hello,

    try restoring your system state using a restore point that dates before the appearance of your problem.
