I SOLVED THIS ON MY LAPTOP BY REINSTALLING THE WINDOWS INSTALLER. THIS PROBLEM USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN THE INSTALLER IS CORRUPTED BY SOME MALFUNCTION. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO UNINSTALL AND RE-INSTALL THE PROGRAM FROM THE MICROSOFT WEBSITE. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

This message appeared " driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" TECHNICAL


Hello !
This system-halt message occurs when a process (in kernel-mode and not user mode) or driver tried to access a memory address to which it did not have permission. The most common cause is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect address in the memory.
When this occurs in a user-mode application, it generates an access violation. When it occurs in kernel mode, it generates a STOP 0x0000000A message. If you encounter this error while upgrading to a newer version of Windows, it might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.
This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. Choose the "Last Known Good Configuration" option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.
Usually, from my experience this rarely happens, but it is a buggy DRIVER installed by you.
Get back with more details please if it still happens. (Tip : Try to re-install all drivers using the manufacturer's website).

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.........this is the error shown in my BSOD..Do anyone know anything about it??


Hi.

"IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

This Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access. The most common cause of this error is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect location in memory.

This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it remove any USB leads like the printer/external drives and restart your computer, Press F8 repeatedly as the computer is starting up. At the resulting Windows Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option.

That should sort out the error message and allow you to boot into Window normally. If you have added any new hardware that required drivers make sure that you have the correct drivers installed that is compatible with the operating system.


Hope this helps!!!

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). click on ok to terminate the application


"An application error has occurred and an application error log is being generated. Exception: access violation (0xC0000005), Address"

The error 0xC0000005 is generated by an illegal "memory access violation". This can be caused by anything from faulty RAM, an incorrect/corrupt device driver, poorly written/updated software and more commonly under Windows XP Service pack 2, malware/adware installations.

Usually you get this error message when performing a specific task, and if that happens you need to check the corresponding 3rd party's website/support department to see if they are aware of the problem

..a while back Symantec Antivirus caused the 0xC0000005 error with an additional message about a file called SAVRT.SYS . A simple software update to the Symantec Antivirus cured the problem.

So what can you do...? well below are a couple of suggestions:



0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion One:

In many cases this error has been generated by faulty RAM memory. So if you have just upgraded your computer with some new memory and you started getting this error then I would remove them and see if the error goes away. If it does then send the memory back and get a refund!


0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion Two:

In Windows XP Service Pack 2 Microsoft introduced Data execution prevention (DEP), a set of hardware and software technologies that perform additional checks on memory to help protect against malicious code exploits. In Windows XP SP2, DEP is enforced by both hardware and software.

Some software/application behaviours are incompatible with DEP - data execution prevention. Applications which perform dynamic code generation (such as Just-In-Time code generation) and that do not explicitly mark generated code with Execute permission might have compatibility issues with data execution prevention. Applications which are not built with SafeSEH must have their exception handlers located in executable memory regions.

Applications that attempt to violate DEP will receive an exception with status code STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xC0000005).

If an application requires executable memory, it must explicitly set this attribute on the appropriate memory by specifying PAGE_EXECUTE, PAGE_EXECUTE_READ, PAGE_EXECUTE_READWRITE or PAGE_EXECUTE_WRITECOPY in the memory protection argument of the Virtual* memory allocation functions.

If you are having issues with 0xC0000005 errors in DEP and a particular piece of software is causing the offence, contact the vendor for a resolution...

Note: It is possible to "Turn Off" DEP in the boot.ini file but this really would be a last step!

/NOEXECUTE

This option is only available on 32-bit versions of Windows when running on processors supporting no-execute protection. It enables no-execute protection (also known as Data Execution Protection - DEP), which results in the Memory Manager marking pages containing data as no-execute so that they cannot be executed as code. This can be useful for preventing malicious code from exploiting buffer overflow bugs with unexpected program input in order to execute arbitrary code. No-execute protection is always enabled on 64-bit versions of Windows on processors that support no-execute protection.

There are several options you can specify with this switch:

/NOEXECUTE=OPTIN Enables DEP for core system images and those specified in the DEP configuration dialog.

/NOEXECUTE=OPTOUT Enables DEP for all images except those specified in the DEP configuration dialog.

/NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSON Enables DEP on all images.

/NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSOFF Disables DEP. (This setting doesn't provide any DEP coverage for any part of the system, regardless of hardware DEP support. The processor doesn't run in Physical Address Extension (PAE) mode unless the /PAE option is present in the boot.ini file.)

You can read more about DEP at:

http://www.updatexp.com/data-execution-prevention.html



0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion Three:

I have also seen this error in the gaming community when folks have updated drivers for their graphics card. If this happens just roll back your drivers and then "Google" to see if their are any other folks reporting this issue. Also keep an eye on the vendors website to see if they have an update/patch available or coming soon.



0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion Four:

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 stops responding when you try to open an HTML document or a Web page. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Access Violation (0xC0000005 exception)

CAUSE:

This problem may occur when you use Internet Explorer 6.0 to open an HTML document or a Web page that contains SPAN tags. If a SPAN tag is not closed correctly by using the tag, an access violation may occur.

Blue screen. 0x0000008e (0xc0000005,0x80409A88,0xf789e360,0x00000000.


This error occurs due to the following reasons: Faulty RAM, registry errors, incompatible drivers, hardware failures, faulty BIOS configuration, Viruses.
Follow the steps below to avoid the BSOD error message occurs again.
Check whether the RAM installed in your computer complies with the motherboard specs. Replace the RAM if needed. You can also check the systems with a friend's RAM to know whether the error message is due to RAM.
Use a free registry cleaner/fixer software available to clean/repair your windows registry. (Ccleaner is good at this)
Do not install incompatible device drivers. Install only Microsoft Signed drivers. Update your existing driver software from the corresponding device manufacturer's website.
If you have installed/changed new hardware, check whether it is supported by your system. Also check whether it is installed properly. If needed test the systems without the faulty hardware. Check whether you've installed correct/signed driver software for that particular hardware.
If you have reconfigured your system BIOS, set it to default/optimal/recommended settings and test the system. Disable features like BIOS caching.
Use an original and up to date antivirus system like Norton, McAfee or Kaspersky and run a full systems scan.
Keep your windows updated with current patches and fixes to protect the systems from unwanted troubles.
All the best.

Error 1316 occurred while down loading adobe 9.1 what is wrong. Wiil not let me down load any registry fix.


Hi upperroom50,


This message usually means a previous installation of a software is getting in the way of the new installation. It's kinda nutty that this would cause a problem, but we live in a nutty world. The fix is to download a free program from Microsoft that will totally and completely remove the old software. Then the new version can load unimpeded.

1. Download: Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility
2. Choose Save file option in the popup dialogue box
3. A File by name Msicuu.exe will be downloaded on your system
4. Run the Msicuu.exe application. This will install the program.
5. Run the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility file you just loaded (Start > All Programs > Windows Install Clean Up or C:\Program Files\Windows Installer Clean Up double click msicuu.exe
6. You will see window listing various applications.
7. Select the offending program, then click Remove. You'll see the warning box, select OK. The utility will remove all the parts of the program from your computer.
8. Restart your computer, then try loading the new version of the software.

Good Luck, and don't forget to leave a rating,

Thanks

MSVCR71.DLL NOT FOUND


If the error started appearing soon after you have installed a new application or device driver, then it is possible that the error is occurring due to problems in the installation. To fix the error in this case, uninstall the software you installed and reinstall it.

Many times, errors related to DLL files, such as Msvcr71.dll, occur due to malware infections. Download, install and run Malwarebytes.

Hope this helps.

Make sure all other antivirus software is removed before you try to install it.

Also, run a scan for existing infections with an online scan like TrendMicro = http://housecall.trendmicro.com or
