When ever an error occurs its always best to ask what was the last thing you were doing before the error began. In my case I was installing a Logitech webcam and thats where my problem began.
I bought new memory. I turned off the DEP and even ran System Mechanic and none of them fixed the problem. It was only when I rolled back my registry to the day before the webcam was installed that the error went away.
I know I am a glutton for punishment, because after fixing the problem I reinstalled the Logitech webcam again thinking maybe the install currupted or something. Well the install went smoothly, but shortly after the 0x7c882fc4 happened again, so I rolled back again and problem solved.
In conclusion I think this error is somehow connected to a driver issue between the Logitech Web camera and the video driver of the ATI 9000 laptop video card. I even tried new drivers on the graphics card to no avail so maybe its a hardware incompatitbility. Any way remove the Logitech Cam and then roll back the registry to before you installed it. Uninstalling the camera wont fix the problem it lies within the registry. If you dont back up your registry regularly, you could try the windows rollback or editing the registry to remove all mention of the webcam (For advanced users) Hope this helps someone It took me a long time to crack this one.
