Problem with Windows Explorer - XP SP2

  shando34 12:05 10 Oct 2004

Hi, ever since I installed XP Service Pack 2 I get the following message when using Windows Explorer on my 2nd HD:

The instruction at"0x019b3397" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory cold not be "written".

I never had this problem before installing XP SP 2 so I'm pretty sure it's not a RAM problem. Also, I am given the option to "Debug" but if I choose it it doesn't work and I get the option to report it to Microsoft. I have a HP PC with an Intel P4 2Ghz processor and 1Gb of RAM (2x 512 sticks, ATI Radeon 9500 Pro 128 Mb graphics card (latest drivers installed)and a 40Gb Maxtor HD (primary) and a 200 Gb Maxtor HD (secondary for storage)Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Thanks mate, but its not "Internet Explorer" but "Windows Explorer" I'm having the problem with.

Start, Run, type in

sfc /scannow

and click OK. You may be asked for your Windows CD.

I don't have a windows CD as xp came pre installed. All I have is a recovery disc!

Still do as VOG suggests but if XP is preinstalled you will not see the insert CD message.

Be aware that it could take sometime for XP to scan and replace missing / corrupt files.

Used your posting on the 10th and ran sfc /scannow and its fixed my PC - same problem as shando34 and I only have the OEM disk.
Just put your OEM disk in, let it autorun and finish, type in the cammoand, walk away have a coffee for 10 mins or so and it should be fixed.

Tried running the sfc /scannow and it didn't ask for a disc but it also never fixed the problem
