I just started work today. I went to open the "My Pictures" in the "My Documents" section and get this error message every single time:

Active Movie Window Explorer.exe

The Instruction at "0x033e321f" Reference Memory at "0x00000000" The memory could not be "written".

Click X to terminate the program

When I do this, it proceeded to turn off the active desktop, which is annoying, so I just turned the thing off for good myself. But that didn't help either.

This is annoying and strange. I haven't even touched this thing yet today. Any ideas? Thanks a lot for reading my post, I appreciate your help.

PS- I'm quite ignorant about all of this stuff so I hope my language was clear. If I can be any more direct regarding the problem, please let me know.

try all the options given below..

1. Go under 'Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup', and try running the process after that and do every option that is available there.

2. Go under 'Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter, and try running the process after that and do every option that is available there.

3. Download 'Spybot Search & Destroy' and 'Ad-Aware' by googleing the 2 programs and then scan your computer with both of those programs.

4. Download 'AVG Anti Virus' by googleing it and then scan your computer with the program.

5. Go into 'My Computer' and then 'right-click' your 'Local Drive' and go under 'Tools', then do the 'Error-Checking' and follow the process through that.

6. If all fails and you cannot find help elsewhere, then backup everything you have on your computer and 'Reformat'.

good luck with that problem.

Tried that stuff and it didn't work. I just deleted the whole file; there's nothing on there I ca't live without, and I have CD back-ups of most of it.

Now that it's gone, the problem should be over, right?

Thanks for your thoughtful help, and kudos to the Maiden fan. That album rules.
