Found the solution to my situation. For some reason, compatibility mode for Windows XP was checked in the shortcut properties. I unchecked it and all is well now. Probably not the solution for all who suffer from this, but fixed mine.

AMD Radeon HD 5450. Worked fine until a couple days ago. Here's what I get from the launcher.log.
[0208/102623:INFO:LauncherAppBrowser.cpp(24)] Work dir is C:\Users\WOSSHOP\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft
[0208/102623:INFO:ClientHandler.cpp(182)] Creating launcher window.
[0208/102623:ERROR:child_process_launcher.cc(533)] Failed to launch child process
[0208/103817:INFO:ClientHandler.cpp(149)] Shutting down!
I've tried an uninstall and reinstall and made sure java and Minecraft were allowed by the firewall.
Any help would be appreciated.
