Recently I have been getting the message headed 'SVCHost exe Application Error' The message reads 'The instruction at '0x0215048a' referenced memory at '0z0000000b' The memory could not be 'written'. Click 'OK' to terminate Program. This message only appears sometimes and only happens when shutting down the PC and it gets to the blue screen stating 'Windows Is Shutting Down'. The numbers also change each time. If I leave the message and do not press 'OK' the computer waits a while and then shuts down. I am running Windows Xp Service Pack 2 with all latest updates and I am also using NIS2007, together with Spyware Blaster. I have also scanned my PC with several other Anti-Spyware programs, all of which show no problems. I have Automatic Updates set at 'Notify me but don't automatically download or Install them'. Any advice on this error message appreciated.
I will try what you suggested. I presently run NIS2007 but I have been told by Symantec that I can upgrade to NIS2008 for no extra cost for as long as my subscription lasts. Because of the error message I get however, I am reluctant to download the NIS2008 file. Could anything affect the download, for e.g. if I have missed any spyware, virus etc. (I have scanned however with numerous utilities and all say OK). I am sorry if this question seems stupid but I am a very paranoid computer user.
It could be Norton Causing the problem.So not sure whats best.Also a few had problems when upgrading.May be better downloading NIS 2008 on to your computer without running it.Use the Norton Removal tool to remove the version that you have .Then Install 2008 version.
Thanks for your reply. What do you mean by downloading NIS2008 but not running it? Would I be OK to download on to my PC with the error message I am getting. Will the download still be OK to use. I have also looked at the event viewer and under the security tab I have some entries for Audit Failure - ID 615. This seems to happen when I disconnect from the internet. Are these anything to worry about? Thanks again for any advice.
Just download 2008 To desktop just press save and not run. Or to My Documents so you know where it is when you need it.Not sure about your other problems maybe someone can advise you better with those.click here=
