"no viruses or malware".

Exactly how did you make that determination?

running antivirus programs and running various anti malware programs. Take your pick from malbytes, spybots destroyers, none work... Error 0xc0000005 is common theme in event viewer. All the malware programs are bogus. Everyone wants to sell their product but, they just dont fix the problem.
And, of course, I can reformat the drive and reinstall...But, is that really a solution?

You DO have an infection but it is ingrained too deep already for most protective programs to work or install properly. Go to Safe Mode and initiate a System Restore to WELL before you began seeing this problem. When the restore is complete, Reinstall Malwarebytes (note the difference in spelling to the way you wrote it), update it and run it to remove any remains of the infection. If you have trouble initiating the System Restore (you might with some of these infections) then use a Windows 7 Repair Disk to initiate a System Restore from outside of Windows. I assume you made one of those when the computer was new. If not the make one from another Windows 7 machine that is also 64bit (or 32bit), but it MUST be from the same type as the one you are repairing.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Error 0xc0000005 can be caused by writing data to virtual memory "paging".

Have you ran a program like Memtest to check the integrity of the Installed Memory Modules ?

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

The fact that Scannow SFC won't run is an indication that you may have an infection of some kind.

I agree you should test your RAM. Safe mode should help troubleshoot. If you Google for your error you will see many possible causes.

Are you stating the computer will run fine as long as you don't access the internet? Do you have a network (LAN) setup? If so, can you access it? If not, the issue may be with your network adapter. Go to Device Manager and remove it. Then reboot and see if Windows installs it OK. Could be a corrupt driver.

"All" Anti-Malware programs are not bogus, although there are plenty of scam ones on the net. There are some good free ones about for most issues but not necessarily yours.
