I have two problems (that are most likely related) that I could use some help with.

First, whenever I try to open my "My Computer" window, the system tries to search for everything for a long time (the whole "flashlight" thing). Before it finishes, I usually get a pop-up with the following message:

The instruction at "0x00c896bc" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

Second, the same pop-up listed above appears every few minutes whenever I'm using various programs like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc.

Any idea on what this could be?

get memtest 86 here ...this will test your memory...let it run for at least 2 hours...if you get any errors then the ram is bad and will have to be replaced...no errors after 2 hours.......then its probably good and we can try other things..
it will run until you press the escape key

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
