It looks like you're hitting a breakpoint exception (given that eip
is executing a 0xcc).  Somehow you are causing execution to hit an int3
that's embedded in msvcrt.  Since you say there are more 0xcc's around
it, I'm guessing that it's hitting in an area of padding between
functions.  You'll have to use the debugger to try to figure out why
execution is being transferred to this address.  There really isn't
any one best strategy to go about this, but if you can get a basic idea
of parent functions, you can breakpoint your way to the problem.
