Hey guys so i am having a problem

Just befor my computer started up fine, was working on it with no problems, then i got errors that read

"svchost.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x00e04651" referenced memory at "0x00e04651". The memory could not be "written".
Click on OK to terminate the program"

so i clicked ok because i do not have the choice which then brings up the same error msg for
(This now happens everytime straight after i logon with my password at startup)

MCI command handling window: winlogon.exe
svchost.exe x2
userinit.exe x2

sometimes the error msg will pop up 1 second after i see the desktop icons ect, sometimes it doesnt even get to the desktop and stays on the log in screen. I have tryed ctrl+alt+del but the task manager does not come up, i tried booting in safe mode which just ends up restarting my computer befor it actually gets in there, i want to try fix this rather than reformat as i have many items on my computer i need.

Also the only new programs i have installed is HP Printer software which came with the new printer and SP3 about 4 days ago

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Lukiez ...welcome to Geeks To Go... :) its either the HP Printer software and /or SP3...you need to uninstall both...but if you can't even boot into safe mode to do it you will have to repair xp...lowdown is here..
