The instruction at "0x00b096bc" referenced memory at "0x0000000000". The memory could not be written. That 's the error message. Well, the one that pops up the most. Anyone know how or where to decipher these 0x00??? If i boot in safe mode with networking, everything is fine. Everything was fine about a week or so ago. Scanned with everything under the sun - no spyware or viruses. Uninstalled most recent updates since if I disabled all services and had no problems (but no network access either). Now I got things working, but if I open My computer, I get the flashlight, then the memory error. If I right click on an icon and hit send to, i get the memory error. Any and all suggestions are much appreciated, thanks!
