The 0x00000005 or INVALID_PROCESS_ATTACH_ATTEMPT error is often associated with an issue in the Http.sys file or a conflict between Transport Driver Interface (TDI) filter drivers installed by antivirus software.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your Antivirus Software: If your antivirus software uses TDI filter drivers, these might interfere with your system’s operation. Try updating your antivirus software to the latest version. This could resolve conflicts with the Http.sys file.
  2. Disable Your Antivirus Software Temporarily: If updating your antivirus software doesn’t work, try disabling it temporarily to see if this resolves the issue. If it does, you might want to consider switching to a different antivirus software.
  3. Update Device Drivers: This error can sometimes be caused by outdated or faulty device drivers. Make sure all your device drivers are up-to-date.
  4. Check for Windows Updates: Windows updates often include fixes for common errors and bugs. Ensure your system is fully updated.
  5. Use System Restore: If the error started appearing recently, you could try to perform a System Restore to roll back your system settings to a previous state when everything was working fine.
  6. Contact Support: If you’ve tried all these steps and the error still persists, it would be best to contact Microsoft Support or your antivirus software’s customer service for further assistance.

Remember to always back up your data before making significant changes to your system to avoid data loss.
