Any of the above programs will give the following error when opened:

The instruction at "0x70bd1c29" referenced memory at "0x0000000". The memory could not be "read"

The PC is a compaq M700 laptop with 512K ram, service pack 4, operating windows 2000.

Steps taken so far:

Memory switched, no change.
Ran scan disc - no errors found
Ran ad-aware and virus scan, no change
Logged on as a diffrent user with admin rights but issue was the same

All other programs opperate normally.

    Hello JamesGrover =)

    Have u tried SFC Scan yet ??

    Goto START>RUN and type, cmd  (hit enter)
    now type, sfc /scannow  (hit enter)
    SFC scan will start scanning ur system
    u will need ur Win2000 CD in order to fix the corrupted windows system files, if found by scan.
