when Windows, or something else, tries to write to a protected memory area. The cause might be anything from the BIOS, to hardware drivers, to the operating system. The fact that you say the error message appears when you first turn the computer on is indicative of a BIOS problem - if was going to be a software-related issue it would happen later in the boot sequence.
Hi F.E. sorry I haven't been able to get back before now, been very busy. Yes it only happens when I first turn on the PC so if it is a Bios problem is there anything I can do to solve it? Would a system restore do the trick? Thanks.
Hi Woodchip. So long as it is not doing any harm and I haven't been hacked I think I will leave it as it is. I don't fancy the idea of twiddling with the BIOS. Too many things could go wrong. Thanks everyone for your help.
