Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Windows freezing Hi Nsindi, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but this weekend has been really busy. I have tried turning on the DEP as requested but still no change. I opened up the 'My Pics' folder, right clicked on an image, opened in picture and fax viewer, closed the windows and the freeze happened again. The thing which is amazing me is that it is not only happening on 1 computer but 3 (1 laptop, 2 desktops and all in different houses). Do you think it could be an update issue from Microsoft? Thanks Dom

    Hi Nsindi, I have just tried a few things and have noticed that the freezes only occur which I use the right click within the my music or my pics folder. Left clicking does not seem to create a problem.

Error running th game "Casino Inc." in Windows XP SP2


What Causes Windows Error 0xC0000005

A quick scan of the online technical forums and blogs reveal folks asking for help with this windows error. Your question may be the same as this typical request:
I'm running Windows XP and when I click to start one of my software programs I get this error:
"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 ******* "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.)

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.


thanks and regards

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.

Windows Freezing


Boot the system in safe mode
1.) restart the system
2.) pump the F8 Key until a screen comes up with different options
3.) select safe mode,

Try right clicking there and see what happens,, I,m guessing here this is a result of damages done by a previoulsy removed virus (GUESSING) it is possible that the same one could have been shard by all 3,,

I'd advise you'd uninstall norton and use the new avg free
