Hi there, 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.

i would suggest that the ram in your computer has possibly broken down over a period, may i recommend obtaining some new ram, if you go to www.crucial.com they can provide you with information that tells you which ram you have in your PC.

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 behaviors 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 Safe SEH 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 offense, 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.)

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.


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 </SPAN> tag, an access violation may occur.
WHY are you using IE6 still??? Upgrade to IE 7 today!

...and that should have now resolved the 0xC0000005 error for you!

If Explorer is corrupt then most of its support will not load, hence the long list of errors. Can you press F8 just before boot and choose "repair" from the options menu? That may repair the main kernel.

The 633 error is a connection problem that appears every time you try to use the modem on your computer.

It states "modem is already in use" and prevents you from accessing the Internet.


This problem mostly appears when a device with incompatible drivers has conflicts with the modem driver on your computer system.


The major software that causes this error is the Palm Pilot Software.

With some simple troubleshooting steps, resolve this modem communication error.


Shut down all currently running applications and restart your computer.

Press "F8" repeatedly before Windows begins to open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.


Scroll down and select "Safe Mode." Press "Enter" to log into Windows Safe Mode.

Safe Mode is used for troubleshooting and repairing system components.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select the "Control Panel."

Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to open the programs window.


Click "Program and Features" (Windows Vista users) and select "Uninstall a Program" to open the programs window.


Click the incompatible software (e.g., Palm Desktop and Synchronization Software) and select "Change/Remove."


Click "Yes" to confirm and uninstall the program from your computer.


Restart your computer normally to complete the process.


Hope this helps

0xc0000005 error is one of the errors a PC user can face. This is a critical access violation error that needs a quick response. If this error is not addressed immediately, this problem might destroy the computer system. Because this error relates the computer memory, there is a huge tendency that you are going to experience computer freezes and slow down. The Windows operating system will run slow because of some system defects.

Cannot access my account


I assume you cannot log into your user account in Windows.
This is how to create a new user account to log in and to move your user files from the old account to the new one.
Start the computer and keep pressing F8 until startup menu appears. Use arrow keys to select "safe mode".
When windows appears, log on as Administrator.
Use Control Panel, Users and create a new user. Select Computer administrator type. Restart the computer and log on to the new user account. Then you will have to move all your data files:
Open Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Documents and settings\[your old user account]
Select folders Desktop, Favorites and My Documents (this may appear as [User]'s documents) and copy or cut them. Go to c:\Documents and settings\[your new user account] and paste them here.
You will lose only the desktop picture and some windows settings.
After that you may delete the old user account from Control panel/Users

this error relates to video drivers. to fix this. restart your computer and as soon as you see dell keep tapping the F8 key in the top row to get advanced boot options. and then select "Enable VGA Mode" and press enter 2 times. then the computer should start and then do a system restore. to do system restore.
There are two ways to perform a System Restore in Microsoft Windows. The choice only depends on if the computer is currently able to boot into Windows or not. If the computer is able to get to the desktop (with the clickable start
in the lower left corner), then choose Method 1. If the system is unable to boot to the desktop or otherwise is unable to complete a system restoration using the selection above, then choose Method 2.
Method 1 Able to Access the Desktop.

1 start .
then click Help and Support
2 Under Pick a Task
, click Undo changes to your computer with System Restore
3 Select Restore my computer to an earlier time
, then click Next >
4 Under, 1. On this calendar, click a bold date, select a date before problems were observed with the computer.
Dates in bold indicate a restore point is available for that date.
5 Under, 2. On this list, click a restore point, click to choose a restore time from the list.
6 Click Next >
.
7 Verify that the desired restore point is listed, then click Next >
.
8 After the computer restarts, the Restoration Complete page of the System Restore window appears. Click OK
.
If the problem still occurs, try restoring the computer to an earlier restore point.

Method 2 Unable to Access the Desktop.

1 Turn off the computer.
2 Turn on the computer and press the F8 key every other second until the Windows Advanced Options window appears.
3 Press the <Down Arrow> key on the keyboard and select Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
4 Press the <Enter> key on the keyboard.
5 Log in as the administrator or as a user with administrator rights.
6 At the command prompt (blinking cursor), type:
C:\Windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
and then press the <Enter> key.
If Windows XP has been reinstalled to a different location on this computer, change C:\Windows to the new path.
If this doesnot work...then we need to reset the computer back to factory settings.
Notice:
Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.

1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
NOTE: Some systems like Inspiron Mini 9 (910) do not support System Restore as they do not have <F11> nor any substitute.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.
The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.
When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
