Finding a Solution for the 0xC0000005 Error

since the problem is related to the sandbox, i don't think we're dealing with faulty memory, DEP is more likely to be the culprit. add the switch /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN to your boot.ini

if this doesn't solve the issue, follow the instructionx in this MSKB article to disable the postmortem debugger (Dr. Watson).

What should disabling Dr. Watson accomplish? By the time Dr. Watson is invoked, the program has already received an access violation exception. –  bk1e Oct 20 '09 at 2:05

In Sandboxie go to CONFIGURE --> EDIT CONFIGURATION A notepad window will open... Go down to:


Where it says.. AutoRecover=y

Change to... AutoRecover=n

BINGO! I hope that works for ya'll as well
