Heres the deal, My folders on my laptop were crashing out and the problem seemed to be with something called Dr Watson.
I searched google for a while and a few sites recommended deleted the AeDebug file from the registry editor, i did that and now whever i try to open AVI files from a disc i get the message

The Instruction at "0x029e415b2" referenced memory at "0x0000000". The memory could not be "written"
Click ok to terminate the program.


Is their anyway to fix this problem, thanks.

?? I have no idea what you read or where you read it (link)

These errors are usually a result of a poorly written program accessing memory incorrectly...Dr. Watson is actually the program that is catching the error and reporting it...it is not the program itself

Stopping this from occuring generally means discovering the faulty program...what did you install just before this began?

Have you checked for malware ? Malware is generally poorly written

I read this, because i read sites that said windows SP2 caused Dr watson to crash out folders.

I think i remember it starting when i download Yugioh Virtual Desktop, I think so, I haven't ran a malware check yet. I will try that though
