The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005) Windows 7 (64-bit)

I've been going crazy the past week about this error. I've searched every post out there for a solution to this problem but every step I take to solve it seems to fail at one point also most of the other posts seem to have slightly different problems.

It all started about a week ago when I was trying to run Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 when it gave me that error. I tried uninstalling but it would give me an error as well. I noticed that the main error I'm complaining about only appears with most of the programs/games I use but not all of them.

For example the following programs/games don't work anymore and show me that error( Windows media player classic/VLC/Assassins Creed/Max Payne/ PES 2012/2013 and so much more)

Although some other programs/games did work such as (Google chrome/Windows media player/ccleaner).

I also noticed that when I try to download anything from google chrome it would be blocked and fail.

What I tried to do:
============

1- I ran a full system scan via Microsoft security essentials and I was free of any viruses/malware/trojans.

2- Downloaded ccleaner and fixed all registry errors.

3- I ran windows diagnostics to check for faulty Ram or HD and both were good.

4- Tried installing malwarebytes which was successful but every time I would run the program it wouldn't open giving me a (malwarebytes error 339 ieframe.dll)

5- Combofix also wasn't able to run by the (0xc0000005) error.

6- I also tried to boot up in safe mood and do the same steps but it had the same results.

7- System restore was of no help as well.


I would appreciate it very very much if anyone could help with this issue as I've become extremely frustrated with it!!

Thanks so much in advance.

  1. same thing happened to my computer too but i cant even open google chrome
  2. Same. Nothing will open except for google chrome, internet explorer, etc. However, everything seems to work fine in safe mode, but that's about all I can do to help.
