I am having some trouble identifying the source of the following error:

IEXPLORE.EXE - Application Error
The instruction at "0x00732187" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".


The error randomly pops up every 5-10 minutes. There are no Internet Explorer windows open at the time of the error and no iexplore.exe processes can be found in Task Manager.

System Specs:
  • Windows XP Media Center Edition (Service Pack 2)
  • Internet Explorer Version 7.0.5730.11
  • 1.66 Ghz, 0.99 GB or RAM
I have done a lot of research on this and have done a number of things to resolve the issue.
  • Reverted back to Internet Explorer 6. No luck.
  • Uninstalled MyWebSearch Toolbar
  • Cleared out all Temporary Internet files, Cookies, et cetera
  • Reset entire Internet Explorer settings
  • Disabled Built-in Pop-up Blocker
  • Disabled all IE Add-Ons
  • Disabled Error Reporting Service
  • Added iexplore.exe to the "Don't report errors for the programs" list
  • Changed the Default web browser to Mozilla Firefox
  • Set OS Virtual Memory to "System managed size"
  • Purchased and ran a Full System scan w/RegCure
  • Completed a full Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware scan with F-Secure Client Security
  • Installed latest Windows & Office Updates
  • Removed a lot of unneeded Start-Up items from the Registry
Also, here's my HiJackThis Log:
