We are constantly seeing this error message on our Windows Server 2003:
cmd.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xC0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application.
It appears when logged in as console. It appears every 5 minutes, and the error message sometimes stack up to 100 times. At the same time, we have experienced several commands which are failing to execute (they do nothing, they don't even start their logic, cmd.exe just fails immediately).
Also, in the process list of the server, cmd.exe is opened many hundred times.
What could be the cause of this error?
