dyoak,

please be more specific !
What do you do right before this error occurs ?
(any action could be helpful: starting/closing a program etc.)

A "small" excerpt from Microsoft's KB accessible through this link:

http://search.microsoft.com/results.asp?MSCOM_SRV=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.microsoft.com&Boolean=ALL&SearchArea=&intCat=4&SName=&SPath=&Cluster=&SearchString=Access+violation+0xc0000005+win95&Finish.x=38&Finish.y=15

Best regards

Please tell us the vitals your system, ie; cpu make and model,
How much ram , pci, type of mouse, video adapter, network, what
kind of Network Adapter, significant software and anything you can
think of. Operating System and version. Updates, Service Packs.
Do you have or did have IE4X and ACTIVE DESKTOP? Busmastering?
Latest installations of programs.
There are many variables and we could spend weeks trying to solve
something while I don't know what we're working with. :)

Regards

I am going to take a guess that somehow the Explorer.exe file has been copied to the root folder (usually C:\) and now there are two copies of this file (It should only be in folder
C:\Windows\) and what you need to do is rename it to whatever you want then reboot, and now you can delete it.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

Never had NT installed.  See related(??) question titled "Windows install".

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.
