I have already been through the malware forum and done all of the fixes to no avail. I get this error every time I close my IE6.
iexplorer.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x0000000". The memory could not be "read."
Click OK to terminate this program

Nothing locks up or stops, it is just a pain to have this pop up every time I exit. I am running XP Pro SP2 with 1G of memory and a 2.6 AMD. I have been all over the NET and this problem seems to bee everywhere but no one has a clue as to why. I have a company laptop running W2000 and IE5 and I get the same kind of message on one particular program that is using IE5.
I have run every virus and adware scan and I feel like the guy who drank all the golightly before the "scope". My brown eyes are now blue. PLEASE don't tell me to run virus scans again.

If we can lick this, thousands will be happy!

Well.. Have you run SFC yet? (SFC = System File Checker) (need Windows Installation CD, or image thereof on drive. Click start, then run.. type command. At the prompt type SFC /scannow. ) Also, you might try re-installing IE.

Another Thought, This Error Message Appears 2 Refer 2 A "Space" On 1 Of Your Memory Chips. Have You A Utility 2 Test Your RAM? Just Casually Observing That This "Instruction" Cannot Read "Memory" At This Locale May B Bcause It's The Start Of Your RAM, Usually A Reserved Spot For The Bios, Further, The Instruction & Memory Node Required R Both Occupying The Same Space Something That Phyics Tells Us Is Impossible :blink: . It's Also Possible That This Node Is A "Space" On Your Disk Which, Would Also B Reserved ( Not By IE ) :scratch: . Definitely Try The System File Checker, Then Run A Disk Check, Then Test Your RAM. Good Luck, Hope You Find The Prob

I have done all the above. This seems to be something that comes with IE6 as I am not the only one with this problem. There was a "fix" for older version of IE but nothing for this. MS seems to ignore the problem unless you want to pay $$ for their helpline. I guess I'll keep watching the little window pop up and then go away. I have swapped memory chips and still have the same problem. I think the IE6 is "buggy".

Hokay, Understood. You Might B Right Bout That "Buggy" Thingie. 2 More Questions: 1: Didja Have Sp1 Initially On Your Machine? 2. Have You Checked The Event Log Under Application & System Looking 4 Related Error(s)? If You Have The Disk 4 Sp2, Try Unistalling It (Sp2) I Mention This Cause It Caused Lotz O Probs On My Machine & from Wht I Hear On Lotz Of Other Ppl's Machines. On Rare Occasions The Event Log Will Have A Link 4 The Error That Actually May Have Good Info. Sorry Your Having These Annoyances

Meaning, do you have your computer overclocked?

hmm.. or your video card either..? My first guess would be to check your clock settings. CPU and Video card. Most of the time.. most.. not all.. but most of the time when you have a memory "stop error" its caused from overclocking. XP and overclocking dont play well together. And being that your running an AMD.. I would be suprised if its not.. very.

I am not overclocking - I answered "NO". This problem started after I upgraded to SP2 and is related to IE6. I have already virus scanned in SAFE mode with 3 different Anti Virus programs as well as 2 times on line. The memory is OK as is the video card. This is not hardware related. Also, what does "And being that your running an AMD.. I would be suprised if its not.. very." mean? Incomplete sentence? I hope this doesn't mean we are going to degenerate into an Intel vs AMD p---ing contest, or something like that. Also, I did get rid of this when I closed out my google toolbar once but the toolbar came back, as did the error.

Here is the latest log. Here is a link to what we did in the Malware forum: http://forums.tomcoy...3f7d001a30ea0b5

As far as overclocking, I have not changed anything on this processor as far as clock speed. I have a similar memory read error on another computer with W2000, an Intel Centrino and it only pops up when a custom Photo Print Wizard is used and it links with my company's VPN through IE 5.5. I have another desktop running W2000, a Pentium III - 700, and IE6 and it never shows this error. The latest error message I just got says, The instruction at "0x01cd1f21" referenced memory at "0x0168ad58". The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate.

It has been a few days since I posted the HJT log but have not heard anything. In looking back at this, I was getting answers from 2 different people - Crow and Avatar. I think I got a little confused and was answering one's question to another. I am sorry if I came off short but I was not sure what was going on. As far as what I have done up to this point, I have run Scannow, several virus and adware checks, and have tried to reload SP2 with no success. I will be happy to try anything else. This error is annoying. Thanks in advance

Your log looks good dparsons. Are you running the latest version of Sygate, there were problems with it in relation to SP2, which have now been corrected. Have you gone to windows update today and applied all the available updates? Are all the programs on your computer (spybot, antivirus, etc) up to date?
Everyone gets specific instructions, disregard what you don't need.
I don't know your skill level.
