  waterland 17:38 07 Oct 2005

A small problem I hope.The computer is working fine apart from the `My Pictures` Folder which seems to be corrupted or?
I open it and none of my pictures are there(nothing important ) and I get the following Error Message

The instruction at "0x6d123474" referrenced memory at "0x0000000" The memory could not be written.

Can anybody help?

Note: Copy and paste sfc /scannow at run as you appear to have missed out the space after sfc

Thank you
I now have another problem?
I have managed to delete the My Pictures folder !!
When I use `scannow` it tells me the disc I have which came with the Evesham computer about 3 years ago is not compatible with the XP that is loaded (I had a hard drive failure which Evesham engineers replaced and formatted with their own software which was o0bviosly a later version)
I am sure the problem should be simple as apart from this the computer is working fine !!!

If you could find any one of the pictures you could locate where they all are. if you can remember the name of any picture try using Start>search>all files and folders and type in the name together with any other refining details as suggested by the writable boxes.
