0xc0000022 Application Failed to Initialize Properly

We have a number of customers who are experiencing an issue where they cannot launch nearly about anything.  When they do they get a 0xc0000022 error message that says "Application Failed to Initialize Properly".

What are the similarities?  Not much of anything.  Not all users have this in the same office.  We've tried CACLS on *.DLL and *.OCX.  We've tried SFC and even system repair.  Same issue.

Any help greatly appreciated.

could be this:
>>> The permissions aren't setup properly on MSVBVM60.DLL in your Windows System32 folder. Seems as though this problem surfaces if OPSSQL was installed when Microsoft Anti-Spyware software was running.

If you can open Dependency Walker, (http://www.dependencywalker.com/) open a .exe that doesn't work with it and see what's wrong.

We've found the problem.

If the computer is running AVG kernel version 4.84 it causes problems with the latest virus definition file.  If they are running something later than 4.84, it works fine.  This would explain why we have some customers failing and others do not.  Im not sure why some of them have an older version

To fix weve had to boot the system in safe mode, uninstall AVG completely, download the new version and reload and update.

The problem is with the antivirus,
Antivirus Blocks System File Checker (SFC) as a malware, and gives you the option to Authorize it,
