    Some M.S. programs unable to start (0x00000142)


    When I try to open Office 2013, Excel 2013, PowerPoint and AVG pc tune up, I get a dialog box "This application was unable to start

    correctly. (0x0000142). Click OK to close the application)" Clicking OK deletes the box with no further information appearing.

    On research, I found the problem may be attributed to a faulty download of a program called Cyclonis Password manager which I

    deleted through the apps & features part of my computer. After deletion, a shortcut still appears on my list of applications. If I click

    on that I get the same box as described above. Any assistance would be invaluable.

    Equipment: HP Pavillion 20

  2. Windows 10 Start Menu Programs Incorrect Location

    Hi Kat,



    As you are unable to open the program from Start screen. I would suggest you to right click on it and click on
    Unpin from Start. Browse to the file location, right click on it and select Pin to Start to set it properly.



    To change the Start settings, follow these steps:

    • Click on Search and type “Start settings” without quotes.
    • Click on the Start settings (System settings).
    • It will open the Personalization window with Start settings.
    • From here you can make the necessary changes.


    Let us know the results.

    EVGA GTX 2xx series Reinbursement Service

    XFX started it and Evga is doing the same. Evga is starting its own reinbursement program for those who bought the Evga 2xx series when they first came out. All you have to do is follow a few steps.

    • Must be a new purchase from an authorized EVGA reseller. Step-ups do not qualify.
    • You have 14 days to register and upload a qualified invoice to claim your EVGA Bucks.
    • Only customers who purhased the EVGA GTX 280 or GTX 260 at the full Manufactured Suggested Reatil Price (MSRP) will qualify for the Reimbursement Program.
    • If between June 16th and July 7th you purchased an:
    • EVGA GTX 260 you will receive $75.00 in EVGA Bucks* or $60.00 Cash Back
    • EVGA GTX 280 you will receive $150.00 in EVGA Bucks* or $125.00 Cash Back
    The only thing this doesn't cover is the Step-up program. I'm fine with that because I got the price cut anyway. I just hope to get the card by this weekend if not early next week. I have a itch to bench. *Rockout :rockout:
