I installed Visual Studio 2019, restarted my computer, after which the 0xc000005 error started popping up for a large number of the applications on my computer. I've uninstalled both Visual Studio as well as the installer it came with, but the problem persists - I can't open a bunch of programs, and in some cases, I can't uninstall them because the uninstall file can't run either.
Here's a list of things that I've tried that haven't worked:
Deactivating Data Execution Prevention;
Running Windows Memory Diagnostic;
Running a disc check;
Editing AppInnit_Dlls in Regedit;
Uninstalling specific Windows updates that were mentioned on some forum as possible culprits, but there are no new updates on my system (according to the history);
Running sfc /scannow;
Running chkdsk on start up.
What else can I do?
