I've seen this issue online in other places, but always in the computer startup. Im not sure what to do.
I can dowload the Paint.NET file fine, saving the contents to my computer, but when I try to run the installation process it gives me this message:

The instruction at "0x7c918fea" referenced memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be "written".

where should I go from here to find the source of the problem?


after a few more tests, it appears I can't download a few other programs either, including the Old Timer List-it program you suggest.

Do you have the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed?
If not go here: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

Do you have at least SP2 installed on your computer? If not the use Windows Update to get at least SP2.

The programs, I'm sure, are necessary for Paint.NET, but the same error message appears even with them.

Also, other error messages appear upon start-up:

The exception unknown software exception 0xc06d007e occured in the application at the location 0x7c812a56

and

Windows cannot find C:\Window\system32\regsvr32

If you have your Windows CD, the go to Start -> Run -> sfc /scannow
Insert your CD if prompted.

If you don't have your CD, then try the registry tweak described here: http://www.updatexp....cannow-sfc.html
Then reboot, and run sfc as per the instructions above.
