The windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of
0xc0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system has been shut down.

Hello WhoKnowsJustin.... Welcome to
GeeksToGo, :)
:unsure: :yes:

I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
  • Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time.
  • Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been
    more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly
  • Please do the following and supply the requested information as needed. If you
    don't understand my instructions please ask and I will try to explain them
    clearer for you.
  • Do not attempt any steps unless instructed or ask before to
    make sure they will not cause any further issues.

First thing I need to ask is what SP is currently installed because that error seems to be a issue with SP3 so updating with SP3 may take care of the issue.

Push and hold the Windows key on keyboard. This is the one with the Microsft windows logo on it.
While holding Win key down click on the Pause\Break key

This should open the System properties window
On this window it will show

System info:

Microsoft Windows: type and version
Service Pack number

Registered Name
Register Number

CPU type
I need all the above info in your next reply Except for Register name and number.
This is private and we don't need to know this information
