Problems with memory could not be "written" and Error copying file or folder

By climbmike ยท 4 replies

  1. I've been having problems with 2 error messages on my windows XP pro computer:

    The instruction at "0x00ccd2cd" referenced memory at "0x00000000", The memory could not be "written".
    Click on OK to terminate the program.
    Click on CANCEL to debug the program

    Error Copying File or Folder
    Cannot copy file: Cannot read from the source file or disk.

    When I try to access "My computer", it thinks for a while, and then doesn't display the drives on my system. Additionally, the "Add/Remove software" feature in Control Panel takes ~10-20 minutes to display the program files.

    Any help you can give me in how to resolve this issue would be a huge help!

    Thanks & regards,

    When you ran Mawarebytes, you didn't check the line that instructs the program to remove what it finds- so it's still there. Please update Mbam, take care to check this:
    Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

    The SAS log shows malware in a System Restore file. That means it is not active in your system. Don't do a restore as you could reinfect the system. Old restore points are removed at the end of cleaning.

    If your system is slow to load, slow to surf and slow to shut down, the main reason is that you have way to many processes starting on boot. All of these continue to run in the background and can eventually cause the system to crash when the available RAM has been used. Then you reboot the computer, it frees up the RAM and the cycle starts all over again.

    Let's do some house keeping: All of the entries below are legitimate entries. None of them need to start on boot and run in the background.

    Please reopen HJT to 'do system scan only.' Check all of the entries, then handle Services additionally as indicated: I have given you descriptions of most entries.

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\AppleMobileDeviceService.exe>> (Used by iTunes to communicate with the Apple iPhone when it is connected to your computer.)

    Continued problems...

    I'm still seeing the same 2 error messages, but I can see my drives under "My Computer" if I wait ~60 seconds. The Add/remove programs still takes a very long time to come up with the list. Any new suggestions?

    Mike, we don't troubleshoot system problem here- unless they are being caused by malware. How much RAM do you have installed?

    Look for any Errors that correspond to the error messages or failure to access what you want:

    Please download VEW and save it to your Desktop:

    Setting up the program

    Double-click VEW.exe then under Select log to query, select:
    • Application
      [*] System

      Under Select type to list, select:
    • Critical (Vista only)
    • Error

      Click the radio button for Number of events
    • Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
    • Then click the Run button.
    • Notepad will open with the output log.

      Load the log
    • In Notepad, click Edit> Select all
    • Then press Edit > Copy
    • Press Ctrl+V on your keyboard to paste the log to your next reply.
