I have windows xp on a compaq presario R3000 (laptop). Let me add that this is a computer my son uses.

When we boot up the computer, I get the windows screen, then I get the following error message
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application".

I then get the background screen and no access to the desktop.

I can open windows task manager and select "create new task" to get to my desktop and files; I cannot get to the control panel. I can run various programs e.g. Registry cleaner, adaware, etc...no help.

I have 5.1, service pack 2 installed. I tried to run windows update manager...won't run. I tried to download latest patches, get an error message about cryptograph...can't get into administration tools to check that (can't get into control panel).

I can go to F8 and chose safemode, and, after it scrolls through files, I get the black, safemode screen. I then get the sign in screen, then the black screen, and then I have access to my computer.

How do I fix this problem? Any thoughts?

THanks, Angie

I have scene that code assoicated with faulty memory. Have you run a RAM diagnostic program? Try.. Memtest86 "A Stand-alone Memory Diagnostic"
