The last 40+ Windows XP updates MS put out several weeks ago (May or June 2006) has created a problem. After installing the latest updates and restarting the following error messages appear: "services.exe - Application error, application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005), click to terminate" FOLLOWED BY a second message: "lsass.exe Application error, application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). click OK to terminate". These to error messages once again appear then a black screen with only the cursor pointer appears on the black screen. The pointer does respond to mouse movement.
I repaired XP, including SP2, installed MS Windows Installer 3.1 without difficulty. The same error messages appeared after installing the 40+ updates from MS. I have repeated this problem at least four times after trying various driver updates and removal of several applications.
Autodesk, all of MS Office applications and several other applications are on this harddrive. Removing Autodesk is not an option at this time.
I would like to identify the conflict with MS updates to the software on this system. Wiping the drive, loading XP with the updates, and then reloading Autodesk and all other applications is not a option at this time.
Can anyone show me the procedure to identify this software conflict? Thanks
