I'd like to know how to get rid of the problem causing these symptoms: I keep recieving an error message saying that "An exception breakpoint has been reached" or "The Instruction At "        " referenced memory at "            ". The Memory Could Not Be Read."  These occur either on startup  or infrequently on shutdown. If you need more info please ask me. This is the first time in over 6 years that I've seen this. I've helped others on here with less demanding probs, but I'm asking you "Great Ones" to help with this. I'm running XP Pro SP2. 2 GB of DRAM, a Western Digital HD 250 GB @ 7200 RPM.  Pleas ask for any other pertinent info..........Gary.

a program that loads with windows is most likely damaged try start run type msconfig hit enter go to the startup tab and untick every thing reboot and test then go back and tick one thing at a time keep rebooting till you find the problem
