Is it a string literal? IOW, are you doint sth. like

LPCSTR foo()
{
 LPCSTR _p = "123";

 return _p;
}

If so, change it to use a non-const memory area, e.g.

LPCSTR foo()
{
 LPCSTR _a [] = "123";

 return _a;
}

This can be a case with ownership of memory , if you are  playing around with some BSTRs and what is happening probably is that due to some reasons you releasing a BSTR twice, i had the same error once and this was what i had been doing (trying to be over cautious).
Can post some code ?
