So, in this article, you will find effective solutions to fix the LogTransport2.exe 0xc0000142 error in Windows 10.
What causes LogTransport2.exe – application error
After thoroughly investigating this problem, it turned out that several different scenarios can trigger this error:
Data Transfer Failure: If the error occurs when your local Adobe installation sends usage data to an Adobe server, you should be able to prevent the error from occurring again by changing the permissions on the UsageCC registry key to prevent your local installation from communicating with the Adobe server.
Malware or adware infection: In some documented circumstances, this problem occurs because your Adobe installation is affected by an adware or malware infection. In most cases, this problem occurs because the malware masquerades as the legitimate LogTransport2.exe file. In this case, the most effective way to solve the problem is to run a Malwarebytes scan to quarantine all files affected by the corrupted material.
Damaged Adobe product installation: It turns out that this problem can also occur if the local installation of your Adobe product (most likely, Adobe Reader) contains corrupt files that affect file sharing. In this case, you can solve the problem by repairing the corrupt installation.
Outdated version of Adobe Reader: Another scenario that can cause this problem is using an outdated version of Adobe Reader that cannot update itself due to a partially corrupted auto-update feature. In this case, you need to update the program to the latest version via the Help menu to fully resolve the problem.
Data Exchange Lock: It turns out that one of the most common causes of this error is the data exchange between your local installation and the Adobe user data server. One way to prevent this error from occurring is to go to your account’s Privacy page and disable “Machine Lean” and “Desktop and Application Usage.”
Now that you know all the potential culprits, here’s a list of tried and true methods to fix this problem.
