Error code -1073741502 (0xffffffffc0000142) / error code -1073741502 (0xc0000142)
0xC0000142 means STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED which can happen when an application attempts to create a new process while the OS is shutting down, and when the desktop heap is fully utilized.
Mostly happening on Vista, but can also happen on older Windows versions, especially when you reset the computer at the time BOINC starts crunching new tasks, previously not crunched.
BOINC 5.10.30 and above have code included that will make sure these tasks are restarted on a reset of the computer. Older versions of BOINC will abort the tasks.
