The memory could not be "read" (mostly winword.exe, iexplorer.exe)
Posted on 2003-03-25
Okay, here goes. I know what causes this error (the application itself mostly), what I want to know is what patches to install to solve it. I cannot just install every patch out there because I'm on 56k, so I need to be conservative with my downloads. I get this "the memory could not be read" message a couple of times per week and it's quite annoying.
>>> Application popup: IEXPLORE.EXE - Error : The instruction at '0x765ff9c8' referenced memory at '0x00000000'. The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate the program. <<<
I usually get this message in Word or Internet Explorer.
Windows 2000 Professional
Service Pack 3
No other patches installed (from windowsupdate that is)
Internet Explorer 5.00.3502.1000
Microsoft Office 2000 (Word 2000 is 9.0.3821 SR-1)
