here is what exactly happens:

turn on computer,

log in

begins to load and explorer.exe - Application Error The Instructions ar "0x734305be" references memory at "0x734305be". The memory could not be read. Click ok to terminate or cancel to debug. I hit ok once and it does same thing again.

If i hit debug, DrWatson Postmortem Debugger encounters an error and needs to close hanging my system.... so i log out using ctrl alt delete and back in and then sometimes it is fine....

any help?


thanks and merry christmas!

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

This will take an hour, it will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.

Click start then run, type
sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot

When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should


Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


If no change, the next thing to do would be a repair install, this will leave data and settings intact

XP Repair

If you are unable to run XP Repair

Alternate XP Repair

Use the last one, Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method


After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update

Beyond this, it could be a hardware fault

i performed everything you asked me but that memory explorer.exe thing still came up. i narrowed it down to only happening when spyguard was loading up so i uninstalled that. no big deal because i have spybot tea timer on as well so as long as this is ok.. let me know if i have to have spyguard installed or if you think i am all good.

thanks,

merry christmas

You do not have to have SpyGuard

You can download 1, 5 and 8 from here
