ESRV.EXE Application Error (0xc0000142)

I had this Minor thing showing up when I start up after I login.

It comes up as

"ESRV.EXE - Application Error"

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application"

I have no idea what application it could be?

Can someone help in order to get rid of this error?

Please try this:

  1. Go to Control Panel (accessible by right clicking your Start Menu button if you are not on the Creators Update, if you are, type Control Panel into Cortana Search)
  2. Open Programs and Features.
  3. Look for Intel Driver Update Utility, if you find it, uninstall it
  4. Reboot
