Windows 7: Error code 0xc0000005

Error code 0xc0000005

I recently updated my os from Vista to 7. I have a problem that is affecting about 90% of the programs I install and it is extremely annoying. I have already stated this in two other threads, but this thread is about the fix of the problem. When I start 90% of the programs on my computer, my mouse pointer has that circle stating that it is thinking, for about 5 seconds. Then nothing at all happens. The programs don't open either. So I decided to go take a look in event viewer, and it said that the program I tried to start had an exception code 0xc0000005.. BTW this is affecting all my web browsers except IE, and IE dosn't work completely either. I have tried a few programs to fix this exception error, but every time the scan is complete, it tells me I have to register to remove the problems. Please, if you can, tell me of any COMPLETELY FREE program that will scan and get rid of the problems without having to pay. As always, Thanks

The bugcheck is a memory exception. it explains why the apps wont work and all the other problems.

You need to test your memory
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

If your memory passes and it wont\
run a system file check
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

That error is again, still and yet, a memory exception. What app did you use to test the ram? how long did it run for?

I used the program on the windows 7 disk. I've also removed and put each stick in one at a time to check if any of them were bad

You cant tell anything from an app run from within windows. windows automatically corrects where it can use memtest

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

I ran Memtest86 6 times with 0 errors. Any other ideas I could try to fix this problem?

Anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this? would a re-install fix it?

Malware could also be the problem. Are you getting a message like either one of these?

“An application error has occurred and an application error log is being generated. Exception: access violation (0xC0000005), Address”
“The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the application”.
