Cant launch programs, error 0xc0000005

I can't access any programs on my laptop. Just recently when I boot I immediately get a bunch of errors for my default programs that says 'The application was unable to start correctly (oxc0000005)'. This happens for any program I try to open.

Sometimes that error means you may have malware on your computer that is preventing you from opening any program.

Here is a list of free 'bootable' Antivirus rescue CD's.

c0000005 is a access violation, it usually means the program has attempted to access a invalid memory address or a memory address which doesn't exist. Which programs are you attempting to open?
