I have just been using the Internet, and I have experienced an error message :
Access violation of address 771B3674 in module 'wininet' Read address 021401cc.
Is there any way to find out what that means?

Is there anything in English! ?

"To put it simply, an access violation occurs any time an area of memory is accessed that the program doesn't have access to. "

I suppose,then, that restarting the PC should do the trick?
