Hi - I have been experiencing the following error message for several weeks now:
"svchost.exe Application error: The instruction at "0x009a96bc" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be written. -->Click OK to terminate -->Click on CANCEL to debug the program".

It occurs everytime I boot up or restart my laptop. I will get this same message back to back about a dozen times. And after each occurence Windows asks me if I want to send an error report. If I say yes Windows advises that the error occurred because Windows prevented a data execution failure or something to that extent.
I ran a virus scan, spyware scan, and registry cleaner without any success. Any help in fixing this issue would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your help!

Mmm, without any backround on that specific STOP error, I would suggest doing a repair install on Windows XP...but there is probably a simpler method...Google is your friend :-P

Prior to getting the error message above I get the following error message:
"Data Execution prevention" for Process Win32 Generic Processes

I went into Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Settings -> Data Execution Prevention
and I unselected Win32 Generic Processes.

The error doesn't come up anymore, but now my internet runs very slow and times out frequently..... What to do?!?
