Problem with svchost.exe

  Kikanaaz 16:27 06 Sep 2006

Every time I looging into my account. An application error window appears related to the svchost.exe program saying the following:

The instruction at "0x00ab96bc" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written". Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

I cannot get rid of it. It keeps showing at all times. Does anyone know how to solve this error?

Thank you. Kikanaaz

Click on start, Run, and in the box type "SFC /SCANNOW" without the quotes and you will be asked to put your O/S disc into the disc drive. When it's done restart your PC.

I hope this helps. D
