Every time I run certain programs (Microsoft Reader, Pando 0.9.3) I receive the following error: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application. I then click OK only to be presented with the same error message, but this one actually goes away when I click OK. Reinstalling these softwares doesn't fix the problem, and I haven't made any hardware changes to the PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Nothing but MS Reader can open .lit files, save for a questionably legal converter that cranks them out as nigh unreadable .htm or .txt files. I've looked around on the MS knowledge base and Google, but no two problems seem to be the same, and none of them are mine.
