0x0000005 Error Message When To Use System Restore

» I get 0x0000005 error when I try to use System Restore. I can't restore it to a previous point without this working. Is there anything I can do?

» The exe file runs programs, it is thus one of the most useful types of files, but this also makes it potentially harmful. It can be used as a carrier for viruses or other malicious programs. If one clicks on a malicious exe file, over the next several hours or days the computer might become unstable. Often the user does not relate the problem back to the cause and attributes it to other factors, such as the need to defragment or replace a disk. Personal information or password keystrokes might be handed over to an unknown website without knowledge of the user, or the machine might delete its own files and crash altogether. Any of these scenarios and more can be set in motion by simply clicking on a 'bad' exe file.

Because of the potential harm, when downloading any exe file, it's a good idea to scan it with a reputable virus scanner before clicking on it. Exe files are generally not meant to be edited, and changing an exe's file size will render it inoperable. It is better to defend than being offended. Experts recommend keeping virus checkers up to date and deleting email from unknown sources. If you receive an exe file from someone you trust, scan it first before clicking on it. Even files that appear to be coming from reputable sources can be used maliciously by third parties without the source's knowledge.

All in all, it is unavoidable to experience an exe file error. When you run an .exe file on a Windows based computer, the file may start a different program. Additionally, the icon for the .exe file may not appear as expected. You may also receive additional errors from the .exe file or from the program that starts, so on and so forth.

For all the .exe file related problems caused by adware, worms, viruses, Trojan(Trojan:Win32/Sisron), spyware and malware, such as slow pc, high usage of CPU/memory, system crashes and so on, DLL Suite will be the best solution for you to troubleshoot and remove the exe virus infection automatically as a geek!

    The first thing you should do is run some respectable scans of your system for malicious software. System Restore is a popular target for malicious software. The malicious software likes to break your system somehow and then break the methods that you might use to get rid of it to try to fool you into thinking that you need to do drastic things, like System Restore, a Repair Install or reinstall your XP completely when none of those things are necessary.

  3. EMMANOUIL LANARIS replied on March 4, 2013: » Follow the suggestions listed below for a possible fix: Disconnect all the external devices (printers, scanner, USB (universal serial bus) drives, etc...) Except mouse and the keyboard and then boot up.

    If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.

I honestly think if I would have used "Last Known Good Configuration" to start with I would have saved myself a lot of hassle. Now it seems to be running good and I don't know exactly when all that automatic update problem started and I don't want to restore it to that mess. In the future, if that happens again, I don't think I'll have a problem using "Last Known Good Configuration"

  5. HAROLD GOLDBERG replied on March 6, 2013: » Error 0X0000005 is "access denied" which implies somehow the ownership got messed up. Probably the Program Files folder. With all the installs things may be confused. Try right clicking on Program Files folder and clicking Take Ownership.
