Hi Folks,

I've had a pretty good run of late with my pc, but just recently I've started receiving a 'WinShellLink.exe - Application Error (Oxc0000005)' which has prevented me using certain programs. When I click OK to close the application, it stays and refuses to go away.

Any suggestions on how to rid my system of this pest?

Cheers,
Agoge

Does it come up when you boot into windows? If it does if ccleaner is installed go to tools / startup delete the entry

Is Glary utils installed? A file with a similar name (except it's called win64shelllink.exe) belongs to it. Uninstall it

Thanks, Speedy.
I have uninstalled Glary, but I can't get CCleaner to run. I have the impression that problem exe. is preventing it.

That exe file wouldnt stop ccleaner from running

When I attempt to initiate CCleaner, I get another message saying: ' The application was unable to start correctly (Oxc0000005)'. Have you encountered this one, Speedy?

What OS are you using ? What Antivirus ?

Where mentioned
which has prevented me using certain programs What programs ?

The WinShellLink.exe is a legit File, BUT it can also be infections, corrupted registry and a few other things.

Bit hard to help with vague information ;)

If its some sort of infection, some of them will stop you running ANY sort of cleaning programs ( including Ccleaner)

I'm running Window's 8.1 and AVG as my antivirus.
