I keep getting this crash no matter which go program I try to run

I’ve been trying to get back into Go for some backend server work. So I started with the default starter program again and I keep getting an error. The code is being run is here:

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
    fmt.Printf("Hello, world\n")
}

No matter which go program I try to run it always throws this exception and prints the following dump:

go run hello.go
Exception 0xc0000005 0x0 0x7ffdb0e10fff 0x1ac65b20000
PC=0x1ac65b20000

Has anybody else experienced this? Or have any suggestion as to what I can do to fix this issue I’m having?

What operating system, what version of go, how did you install go?

It’s Windows 10.
Version 1.16.2 of Go.
I installed via the msi downloaded from the go website.

As an additional update it throws the exception even if I use -buildmode=exe. And it also seems to cause issues with my network card as well (everything gets slower)

Do you use any privacy or anti virus software? Or a personal firewall?

If you do, please try disabling them, and then try doing something in Go again.

Hey I disabled my antivirus software and the issue disappeared. I also opened an issue on GitHub and got pointed to this issue: runtime: Go randomly crashes on Windows with no stack trace, just “unknown pc” and memory/registry dump · Issue #40878 · golang/go (github.com) about Webroot AV (the AV I have) being the culprit. So I’ll have to search for a new AV software now. Thanks for your help!
