0xc0000005 is an access violation - basically something in the process is
trying to read memory it does not have access to. A virus certainly could be
causing that, although a lot of other things could do, such as unsupported
security configuration settings.
There is a chance that your anti-virus program could resolve the problem, if
it is a virus, but frankly I doubt it. I think you need to rebuild and then
figure out what it is you are doing that is causing this. What have you done
to the system? Why do you believe it is malware? You seem to have installed a
lot of applications, but the ones you listed, assuming they are current
versions, are ones that others have used as well.
