Svchost.exe error when logging in to Windows.
Posted on 2006-07-10
A user at my work is recieving a svchost.exe error. The following error is what is displayed on his screen when HE LOGS INTO WINDOWS (XP Pro):
The instruction at "0x10057530" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".
Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program
When the user click's OK, the usual windows error reporting window comes up prompting for you to report the error.
**The user has a laptop with Symantec Anti-Virus protection, Service Pack 2, ALL of the latest updates as of about a week ago and has been formatted from scratch about 3 weeks ago right out of the Dell box. It also has Windows Defender and that has the latest definitons as well.**
I don't know if this error has anything to do with it, but when HE LOGS OUT OF WINDOWS he recieves a IreIKE.exe error message that displays similar information as the error message above. I couldn't write down all of the error message because it only appears when the screen displays "Closing network conections.... Saving settings..." etc. and then disappers because the PC has shut down.
**Both of the error messages are displayed at which appears to be random intervals. For example, when I first found out about the error message I restarted the computer 3 times and did a complete shutdown 4 times. The first error message was only displayed once and the second error message was diplayed twice.**
