You do not mention your OS but much 32-bit software will not run on a 64-bit processor. You must get 64-bit version. Some times having a dual booted system with a 32-bit OS will allow sporadic use of a peripheral. Sometimes just the presence of 64-bit processor will phreek out the software and cause partial execution and the kind of message you are seeing. I have exactly the same problem and there are some things i can work around and some not.

My google chrome crashed and everytime i click on it a message says DEP has closed it


To use hardware-enforced DEP, you must meet all the following conditions:
  1. The computer's processor must support hardware-enforced DEP.

    Many recent processors support hardware-enforced DEP. Both Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Intel Corporation have defined and shipped Windows-compatible architectures that are compatible with DEP. This processor support may be known as NX (no-execute) or XD (execute disable) technology. To determine whether your computer's processor supports hardware-enforced DEP, contact the manufacturer of your computer.
  2. Hardware-enforced DEP must be enabled in the BIOS.

    On some computers, you can disable processor support for hardware-enforced DEP in the BIOS. You must not disable this support. Depending on your computer manufacturer, the option to disable this support may be labeled "Data Execution Prevention," "XD," "Execute Disable," or "NX."
  3. The computer must have Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 installed.

    Note Both 32-bit versions and 64-bit versions of Windows support hardware-enforced DEP. Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 include all the features and components of Windows XP SP2.
  4. Hardware-enforced DEP must be enabled for programs on the computer.

    In 64-bit versions of Windows, hardware-enforced DEP is always enabled for 64-bit native programs. However, depending on your configuration, hardware-enforced DEP may be disabled for 32-bit programs.
For more information about DEP, about DEP configuration, and for a list of Windows Operating Systems that support hardware DEP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:875352 A detailed description of the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature in Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, and Windows Server 2003For information about how to configure memory protection in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc700810.aspx

To confirm that hardware DEP is working in WindowsTo confirm that hardware DEP is working in Windows, use one of the following methods.Method 1: Use the Wmic command-line toolYou can use the Wmic command-line tool to examine the DEP settings. To determine whether hardware-enforced DEP is available, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_AvailableIf the output is "TRUE," hardware-enforced DEP is available.
To determine the current DEP support policy, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicyThe value returned will be 0, 1, 2 or 3. This value corresponds to one of the DEP support policies that are described in the following table.

Administrators can manually create a list of specific applications which do not have DEP applied1AlwaysOnDEP is enabled for all processes0AlwaysOffDEP is not enabled for any processesNote To verify that Windows is running with hardware DEP enabled, examine the DataExecutionPrevention_Driversproperty of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. In some system configurations, hardware DEP may be disabled by using the /nopae or /execute switches in the Boot.ini file. To examine this property, type the following command at a command prompt:wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_DriversMethod 2: Use the graphical user interfaceTo use the graphical user interface to determine whether DEP is available, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type wbemtest in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. In the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester dialog box, click Connect.
  3. In the box at the top of the Connect dialog box, type root\cimv2, and then click Connect.
  4. Click Enum Instances.

  6. In the Query Result dialog box, double-click the top item.

    Note This item starts with "Win32_OperatingSystem.Name=Microsoft..."
  7. In the Object editor dialog box, locate the DataExecutionPrevention_Available property in the Properties area.
  8. Double-click DataExecutionPrevention_Available.
  9. In the Property Editor dialog box, note the value in the Value box.
If the value is TRUE, hardware DEP is available.Notes
  • To determine the mode in which DEP is running, examine the DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicy property of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. The table at the end of Method 1 describes each support policy value.
  • To verify that hardware DEP is enabled in Windows, examine the DataExecutionPrevention_Drivers property of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. In some system configurations, hardware DEP may be disabled by using the/nopae or /execute switches in the Boot.ini file.

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.

Check the function after every step.

Step One: Power Cycle with printer

1. Use the On/Off power button to turn off the printer.
2. Disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the printer.
3. Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet.
4. Allow the printer to sit for at least 30 seconds.
5. Reconnect the USB cable.
6. Reconnect the printer power cable.
7. Turn on the printer using the On/Off power button on the printer


Step Two: Disable DEP (Data Execution Prevention).

Disable the Data Execution Prevention in Windows Vista and check by following the below steps:
1. Click on Windows Icon.

2. Control Panel->System->Advanced System Setting->Performance->Settings->Data Execution Prevention

It needs to be set to "Turn on for essential windows programs only", which is the default.

If you set it to "Turn on for all programs except those I specify", then the all-in-one driver stops working and you get blank pages.

Alternate Option for DEP

Installing AVG 8.5 on Windows XP professional getting error 0xc0070002. What is the fix?


Your computer's processor blocked an activity of a program by stopping the computer from working to prevent the activity from being executed (also known as DEP or Data Execution Prevention) and giving such error instead.
Try turning off the DEP for all programs by:
- opening Start > Control Panel > System
- Click on 'Advanced' tab
- In the performance area, click 'Settings' button
- A new window will appear
- Click on 'Data Execution Prevention' tab
- Click on the upper radio button (run DEP only for Windows services)
- Restart your computer

If it doesn't work or is turned off for all programs already then there seems to be a problem with your Windows (since you said that IE takes 100% CPU process), or the antivirus program isn't really compatible with your hardware and/or driver software.
