  1. Exception_Access_Violation

    I just came home from work and noticed a notepad icon on my desktop. I opened it to see what it was and had the following displayed. I'm not copying the whole thing, because it had over 100 lines. I'll just give the general idea of it. I've run a virus scan and everything was okay. I've done a Google search and found some things, but can't figure out what this is and what to do, if anything. My wife was on the computer at the time this happened and didn't notice anything unusual. Anybody know if this is something I need to worry about? So far I don't see any problems with the computer.

    An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.

    And it goes on and on, like I said about a 100 lines. This is at the end of all this mess, if it's any help.

    It seems to me that you opened a java application that did something illegal or couldn't run at all. It may have been on your desktop on the first place... but I'm not too sure I'm not a crazy guy who knows what all those lines mean. But it seems it tried to make the background color of your window an invalid color, there is a few in the RGB color scheme.

    Looks to me like something on the Internet triggered IE to launch apps.. possibly another IE / Java exploit?

    That's got me worried. If that's what it is, what is it likely to do and if I do a restore, (XP), back to before this happened, will it clear it up.

    Just found this in TechSpot search. Thomas posted this back in February. I already had the update from Microsoft installed. All the searching I've done seems to lead to the conclusion that this might be a big problem, although I can't see it if it is. Can anyone give me some clues what I might need to do, if anything?

    EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION is a software error when a program tries to access memory that's out of it's bounds.

    reading/writing to memory that's invalid will cause this. it's more a software problem than anything and you should look for an update. dont worry too much about it being a virus though, access violations are extremely common. usually poor coding.

    you'll have to get some more memory, so someone can remote access your machine :eek:

    McNasty, I did have the latest Microsoft update, but I use Sun Java and I have updated after the fact. Thanks for your reply.

    JSR, I'll think about more memory, but maybe I need it for my brain, old age, you know? By the way, after looking at your latest avatar, are you sure you didn't inhale? HeHe.
