I have installed Oracle 9.21 on my MS-XPsp2 laptop.Every time I attempt to connect to the database by any method, the listener process crashes. This crash happens if I connect to oracle
i. Using "SQLPLUS <uname><passwd>@<dbname>
ii. Using the Enterprise Manager Console
iii. Using the LSNRCTL utility, 'status' command.

The crash produces the the following information:

"Unhandled Exception at 0x61915732 in TNSLSNR.EXE 0xC0000005
Access violation reading location 0x00000579"

I know that in XP a 0xC0000005 is a memory access error where the program is attempting to read/write from a memory address that is forbidden by the O/S to the process. In a C/C++ program this sort of error is typically caused by an uninitialized pointer, or a buffer overrun.

I know other people have seen this problem, I can find their plaintive calls for help on Google. But I have yet to find an answer to it.

Does anyone here know of a solution?
