if you happen to be running symantec endpoint protection, it seems to be the culprit.http://techblissonline.com/google-chrom ... nitialize/
instructions for Chrome, but it should work fine for Iron as well. Too bad the person who posted a reply suggested the most obnoxious ways to "fix" the issue instead of suggesting helpful things.
If you faced “The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).Click on OK to terminate the application.” error with google chrome (chrome.exe) and you are using symantec, then you could try the following steps:
* Back up the registry on an affected system
* Open the registry on the Agent system by entering regedit from a run prompt
* Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SysPlant
* Open the Start DWORD
* Change the value to 4 to disable the drivers
* Reboot the system to commit the changes
The above registry solution to fix the Google chrome error was issued in symantec forums.Read it here.
The other easier solution is to run Google Chrome with --no-sandbox (with two dashes before “no”). To run it with the above option, edit the property of the shortcut you use to launch Google chrome and add the above option at the end of the “target” line (after the path to the chrome exe) i.e. Right click your shortcut to “Google Chrome” and click Properties. In the target text field, add a space then add --no-sandbox (with two dashes before “no”) right after the ending quotation mark. Run using this shortcut.However make sure that there is a space in between the ending quotation mark and the --no-sandbox option that you add.You could find a shortcut to google chrome on your desktop.Also note that you should use two dashes before “no”.See the pic. below.
