svchost.exe Error in XP

Morning all,

I am getting this message when working on the pc. It sometimes happens when booting up or when trying to do a Windows Update.

I have tried sfc /scannow and keep on getting the message that the wrong disc has been inserted into the drive. This is despite it being the install disk and SP2 Disc.

Is anyone able to assist me?

What is the exact error you're getting?

Apologies for the late reply.

The error message that I am getting says:

"The instruction at "0x745f2780" reference memory at "0x00000000" The memory could not "read"

Ok to terminate
Cancel to debug the program
