I currently have a problem with my svchost.exe: everytime I start my computer, a popup comes out with the message "The instruction at "0x7c928fea"referenced memory at "0x00000010".The memory could not be 'written' "
Since I have read a lot of issues about that error, I tried to check the other topics, ran a complete scan with AVG AntiVirus, Panda ActiveScan, AVG AntiSpyware and WindowsDefender. Nothing special showed up, except some spywares in cookies. Even after removing those, I restarted the computer, and the problem is still there.
I decided to go and check the event viewer to see where the error came from. Shortly after the application popup in the system list, I had an error (with a red X)
It appears to be something called "Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework" :
the event viewer says "The Windows Driver Foundation Service - User-mode Driver Framework has been stopped with an error : a peripheral attached to the system does not work properly." (translated from French, may not match the actual English typical error message)
I would be very grateful if you could help me on this.
Edit: I have just tried disabling the "Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework" in the service.msc list .
More info on the service is available there:
Name: Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework
Description: Manages user-mode driver host processes
Path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k WudfServiceGroup
If I disable it, I don't get any error message at startup anymore, but the system is still very slow and I would like to ensure everything is alright tif I disable it, since I am not sure of its use and it looks like it's a service from Microsoft.
