The 0x0000000C or MAXIMUM_WAIT_OBJECTS_EXCEEDED error occurs when a single process has too many objects in the WAIT state. This is a relatively rare stop error and is usually caused by a software issue, particularly with software that incorrectly handles threads and thread synchronization.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your System and Drivers: Make sure your operating system and all your drivers are up-to-date. Windows updates often include patches that fix potential bugs, and outdated drivers can cause issues.
  2. Uninstall Recent Software: If this error started appearing after you installed new software, that software might be causing the problem. Uninstall the software and see if the error persists.
  3. Run a Full System Scan: Malicious software can cause a variety of problems on your system. Run a full system scan with your antivirus software to ensure your system is clean.
  4. Run System File Checker (SFC): The System File Checker tool can fix potential issues with your system files. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type “sfc /scannow” to run this tool.
  5. Use System Restore: If the issue started recently, you could try using System Restore to revert your system to a state before the problem began.
  6. Contact Support: If none of the above steps resolves the issue, it may be best to contact Microsoft Support or a professional technician for further assistance.

Remember to back up your data before making any significant changes to your system to prevent potential data loss.
