I am a photographer not a computer whiz. I use Lightroom/photoshop for photography. Every time I boot my system I get a Windows error popup:

 

"radeonSettings.exe - application error

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142)"

 

I run W10 and have a Radeon RX 460 with up to date driver v.18.1.1

ASUS P8Z77-V Pro Thunderbolt, 32 GB RAM with a i7-3770K OC to 4.18 GHz using mobo BIOS settings.

 

I am unable to launch "AMD Problem Report Wizard" from the W10 Start Menu or from the AMD Radeon Settings (which does launch)

 

Also, when I run SandraLite it states for my GPU: "Video BIOS (firmware) update available. To update, visit the manufacturer's website."

My GPU has a BIOS that I can update?
