    c0000005 is an access violation and can refer to DNS accessing a file it doesn't have access to or accessing a memory location it doesn't have access to.  The former is checked by taking a look at the DNS zones on your server, noting their location (whether in an AD partition or file), and making sure the service account running DNS has full access to those locations.  The latter can be tricky.  I'd start with an "sfc /scannow" and reboot to make sure no system files were/are damaged.  Other than that, I'd search for the latest hotfix that updates DNS and apply it (if you can - that is, if the latest update is actually newer than your DNS components) just to make sure all of the components of DNS are on the same page, so to speak.  You could also enable DNS logging and use the time noted in the event log entries to check and see what the DNS service was doing right before it crashed.
