After update messages Error status 0xc000012f keeps coming up?

Different messages keep popping up on my hp windows 8 laptop after I got the update downloaded onto my computer. Different windows keep coming up all concerning system32\uxtheme.dll for example:

Dropbox.exe - Bad Image
C:\Windows\system32\uxtheme.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. Error status 0xc000012f

Uninstall KB2879017 update.
Cumulative Security Update for IE 10 for Windows 8 x64 systems.

If you can't uninstall, restore to a previous point before the update.
Mark the update as hidden within Windows Update so it doesn't update again.
