hey guys, today i have been getting frequent pop-up error messages just after i boot and get into windows. sometimes it takes a little longer for the message to appear and before it does, my system runs normal. but once the message pops up everything freezes. there are 3 variation of the message: pop-up titled "svchost.exe" 'the instruction at "0x745f2780" refferenced memory at "0x00000000". the memory could not be "read". pop-up titled "svchost.exe" 'the instruction at "0x74989faf" refferenced memory at "0x00000040". the memory could not be "read". and also "Generic host program for win32 encountered a problem and needs to close...etc. could it be spyware or a hardware issue? anyhelp is much appreciated. cheers.
