This seems related to Agnitum Outpost Security... why does any software aiming at tightening security inject its DLLs into every application? Truly secure software would monitor from the outside, as the DLL could be used as an attack vector.

The first problem in the log is an error -23021 (VERR_CR_X509_CPV_NO_TRUSTED_PATHS) on a DLL (c:\progra~1\agnitum\outpos~1\wl_hoo~1.dll) related to Agnitum Outpost Security, and thereby refusing to load it. That error means we weren't able to verify the signature embedded in the DLL. Either because it uses some root certificate that isn't trusted by your system or because it's incorrectly signed. I'm unsure whether this DLL is used by the crypto subsystem and is responsible or related to the other errors we're seeing further down in the log.

The second problem is failure to find a valid signature for user32.dll. This could be related to the above DLL or it could be a totally different issue - like user32.dll might be actually modified. Best way to find out is running sigcheck -i c:\windows\system32\user32.dll. sigcheck is a tool from microsoft/sysinternals.

Would potentially be really helpful to get the output of sigcheck -i c:\progra~1\agnitum\outpos~1\wl_hoo~1.dll as well.
