    First let me say I'm not a gamer so I'll tell you what little I can. The good news is that you do not have a virus, or at least if you do, it is not c0000005. My best guess is that you play games and may need to update your video drivers. Look here for some info.

    It could be a number of other things so do a Google search on c0000005 and you will get lots of hits, non of which talk about a virus. I hope this will give you a place to start looking.

    The c0000005 error is caused by a lot of things, from buggy drivers, spyware, corrupt registry hive, bad mem, virus's, misbehaving programs, it's hard to pin down without knowing what processes are running.

    Hey gotrootdude,

    You are correct of course, there are several things that could cause the c0000005 error. But Billy posted the 100016b address and I found this at Microsoft:

    I was thinking it could be his problem too? :confused:
