Profiler application error

I cant run profiler on my machine. I try to start it from sql server management studio and I get an error "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application". I am running windows XP professional edition and SQL Server 2008. Has anyone come across same issue? I tried uninstall and reinstall of sql server 2008 but it didnt work.

Thanks Ravi

(0xc0000005) is typically an access denied error.

You can try running Process Monitor/File Monitor/Registry Monitor from the SysInternals stable and see if one of those can determine where the issue comes from.

Based on the description it is hard to determine if it is a file access, a Registry read, or a memory location access that is failing you.

Another thing to try is make sure you haven't got any spyware lurking on your machine... Programs that try to attach themselves to other programs can often cause that sort of error...
