I don't have to have an programs opened for a little gray application error box to open saying the following:

iexplore.exe- Application Error

The instruction at "0x74986b37" referenced memory at "0x0000024." The memory could not be "read."

Click on OK to terminate the program

What is this and what can I do? any advice would be appreciated.

Could be caused by a number of things. Spyware, application overwriting memory. memory socket going bad, one or both memory modules could be going bad.

You might want to pull the memory and use pressurized air to clean out the socket. Replace the memory after cleaning see if that takes care of the error message.

Pull one memory module and see if the error still occurrs. Replace that module and pull another.

Download and run memtest86:

Run memtest86 overnight. If it errors so much as 1 time, then you know it's a hardware problem. It doesn't prove RAM, but you'll know to stop chasing software for the time being.
