This message comes on almost everytime i turn my computer off!

the instruction "0x7c918fea" referenced memory at "0x00000010" could not be "written"

Click on ok to terminate the program
click on cancel to debug the program

I am pretty much computer illiterate, but i can fix things if i am slowly walked through them.

Luv! :whistling:

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

It should have, or you can borrow one, it needs to be the same version as was originally installed, if you downloaded SP2, you need an SP1 XP CD

No, but from what i have researched, this is a common error with McAfee being ran with other security stuff. The problem is that i dont have McAfee, so im not sure where this is coming from.

I have Norton & adware

See what this turns up, it is a fully functional trial

Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
