The Application Was Unable To Start Correctly (0xc000007b). Click Ok To Close The Application


I recently installed couple of programs related to TV tuner card on my laptop. After the installation I'm facing problem with Bitdefender TS 2013. Till today I never faced an issue.

Now whenever I restart the laptop, the Bitdefender crashes out with error "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application". For bdagenet as well as seccenter.exe I get this message. I tried uninstalling, doing a clean install as well as repair but that too didn't work. I tried uninstalling the TV tuner program but that too didn't.

Kindly help.
