I did a quick Google search for this and didn't come up with anything good at first, but then found several articles stating that people who have this error actually have a virus on their computer. After running a virus scan and removing the virus, the 0xc000007b messages disappeared.

Try installing and running a few anti-virus solutions and scanning your computer. Something that simple might help you out.


WORM_KLEZ.E virus causes this error to occur.

    I assume the program is the Age of Mythology expansion pack. If not, I have no idea what that EXE file is. I'd say try to reinstall the game, or if you're using a no-cd fix, try a different one, that one may not work or may not work with your system if it's 64-bit. That doesn't appear to be a known error for that game (see MS link).

    the browser ran into a bad memory segment. reboot and it will be cleared. if it happens again anywhere else, than run a diagnostic scan and see where the bad files might be linked to. probably the browser which might need to be reinstalled.

    the number is just a reference to RAM location like an x, y, z coordinate. Usually, it means that the file downloaded is corrupt and should be re-downloaded(preferably from a different source). Beyond that, all I could say is restart your computer and try again.
