One day, I was just listening to music and I decided to open up a game called Magic Workstation. I have been playing it for over a year now. That was the first time I got the message "The Application Failed to initialize." It also had the code "0xc0000005."

Then I restarted my computer and at startup, MSN Messenger had the same problem. I have tried to run combofix, which I know and have used before but ran into the same problem.

Other symptoms include just a slower internet explorer.

Any help?

Its a registry error. Registry fixes are risky, but if you want to get rid of these problems, buy Registry Mechanic, and run it.

If you cant BUY anything, then i suggest Advanced Windows Care.

Do a full scan with that and let it finish, its PC care in 1 button :thumbsup:.

Its from IOBIT :flowers:.

It appears that Symantec products cause this error:

I also found out that my microsoft office products have that problem too.

Also. I ran a system restore and everything seemed to be fine until it suddenly stops working again.

Any suggestions?

Hello ineedhelpplease,

I see that you have posted a topic on the same issue here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/218242/the-application-failed-to-initialize-properly/ We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

Because you have a log posted in the HJT forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

If you are still experiencing this issue once you have been declared clean, please send Private Message to a moderator to reopen this topic.
