The instruction at "xxxxxxx" referenced memory at "xxxxxxx". The memory could not be "written".

Click on OK to terminate the program

I get this error message with just about every application after I open it or close it


I just did a system restore to last week when it was fine and stil,l it is bringing up a bunch of application errors.

Some applications take forever to respond, and shutting down takes way too long

AND BTW The OS IS WINDOWS XP

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

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

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.

This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the 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

Run the scan, click skip if it asks for the CD, confirm, if it asks a few times, click cancel then run the rest

Then you know there are files missing, you will be able to borrow a same version as was originally installed CD, if you downloaded SP2 you would need an SP1 XP CD
