The Instruction At "0x0(random_numbers)" refrenced memory at "0x000000" the memory could not be "read"

Err , this started a day ago..
have no idea why but i think it might have to do with Webroot Spysweeper.

im on a P4 2.2 which is properly cooled , with 1024 rdram , run adaware , kaspersky pretty regulary - im not sure this has to do with a virus..
im gonna post a few pictures with the problem -
it happens whenever i close explorer / ms outlook express , it doesnt degrade the performance just bugs - gives that "error" any once in a while..for some wierd reason i cant "surf" with internet explorer - only with mozilla..just noticed it now..wierd.
here are a few pictures..

Hello m0tek =)

hmmmmmmmmm how abt a sfc scan first ??
Goto START>RUN and type  sfc /scannow
u will need ur WinXP CD in order to fix the corrupted windows system files, if found by scan.

if this doesn't solve the issue, then do this,
open IE>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>and untick Enable Third Party Onjects
apply and now check for the problem ??

!! GOOD LUCK !!

for some reason when i try and use sfc it requires the cd - i insert hit and keep hittin "retry" (saying it wont detect it..) - eventually it reaches the end (after it gives me the cant detect cd - altho i can see it in my computer) and it does nothing..just closes..

Swap them out, 2 by 2 or 1 by one, or test them separately

m0tekAuthor Commented:

DAMN.

m0tekAuthor Commented:
guess i was saying TOO MUCH - TOO SOON
it cant be a memory problem - i removed 2 mems (2x256) and closed Outlook / diffrent application - same errors.
then i used the other 2 mems..(replaced again) - same problem.

i think this has to be with the windows..

But you got errors whule testing it ! throw away the bad ones, you don't know what they exactly did to your soft. On many occasions, when i had bad memory, i had to reinstall everything, as the system integrity was destroyed.

m0tekAuthor Commented:
ummm...i can go to the shop i bought it from and just replace 4 of them?
i dunno which one exactly was runied (if its ruined)

and btw
i tried just now safe mode
the PROBLEM doesnt EVEN EXIST in safe mode :\
wierd.

nobusCommented:
you can have them test, you can switch them in the pairs to determine which one is bad.
If ithe problem does not exist in safe mode, it is likely that a driver got corrupted, so start uninstalling all the devices one by one, reboot and reinstall them.  But if you got bad memory, the problems will come back....

m0tekAuthor Commented:
i think its a driver error - cuz as i said - after i installed (i think..) webroot spysweeper and sweepd everything - the problem started..
almost every application runs well - but when i close it - boom - mostly this error..
how do u suggest i uninstall?
hardware- device manager..
uninstall...then scan for hardware changes?
each device?
i might even reinstall windows xp all over lol
just dont wanna loose programs

nobusCommented:
Look first which drivers you've got, or download them first. I wouyld start with the video driver, and go down the way. If you download them, you will also have the latest ones.
And yes, uninstall from device manager, reboot and reinstall is the best way.
