Error When Opening Photoshop and Others

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Today I tried to open up Photoshop, but I got an error message.  At first I thought that something was wrong with the application, but when I tried to open up Google Chrome I got the same message!  Any advice would be great!  I am not so great with computers, so any advice you give may have to be broken down.  Thanks for the support!

Error image and text are as below:

Photoshop.exe – Application Error:

 The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000001d). Click OK to close the application.

Error When Opening Photoshop and Others


This is a very common issue with Photoshop and more and more people are complaining of getting the same issue. But Adobe ensure that they always have a fix for each problem. As the error is stating, "The application was unable to start correctly". This could be because of the following reasons:

1. Your software is outdated.

2. Your software is damaged or corrupted.

3. Your computer has a malware or viruses.

To fix this, you need to install the most recent update of Photoshop from the Adobe website. But if you think that the software seems to be corrupt or damaged, you need to uninstall Photoshop and all of its components and then reinstall it back again. But be sure to install a new software using another installer. If you are installing from a CD, try a new one. Or if you are installing from a downloaded file, be sure to download it from the Adobe website.

Also, this issue can be because of malware or viruses so you need to perform a complete scan on your computer using your antivirus software and delete any threats that your computer can find.
