I had been playing this game for just about 500 hours in total; with mods (nothing too serious just some overhauls). When one day when i attempt to start the game through the browser, the game automatically closes and gives me an error screen, 0XC0000005 STATUS ACCESS VIOLATION. The error persisted beyond me reinstalling the game twice, trying to use multiple launch option fixes like malloc=system and profiles=profiles etc. Looking through the local files, i saw that it was possible to launch the Arma 3 game executable directly from the files (however this would only result in a vanilla version of the game). The game also only crashes during the "Loading Core Configs" of the arma 3 loading screen.
If you need elaboration please let me know
