I close the window and the shutdown procedes smoothly.
But now on startup, I get the same message: The instruction at "0x77f580db." Referenced memory at "0x00000000" The memory could not be written." The window appears multiple times with different references such as 0x75605775, 76f6110c, etc.
Windows seems to boot fine, but startup programs. especially those that normally appear in the sys tray(McAffee, volumne, etc) are launching much slower.
I've checked the event viewer in control panel, and there are System error messages from the "Service Control Manager" and "DCOM", and there were Application errors from "PerfNet", as well as a few other miscellaneous sources.
Im running a Xp FP1 on a P4 3.2Hz, with 768Mb of RM that seems to at 40-60% utilization. I've run Everest which shows a HD temp of 104 degrees.
Help !! ??
Thanks for your time and suggestions.
