Help on handling explorer.exe error message that comes up every couple seconds
Posted on 2007-08-05
I am getting the below message several times a minute:
explorer.exe - application error
The instruction at '0x656e6f73" referenced memory at "0x65e6f73". The memory could not be "read"
Click ok to terminat the program
Click cancel to debug the program
Microsoft Visual C++ displays
unhandled exception in explorer.exe 0xc0000005 access violation.
The above error message pops up so frequently that I can not get anything done on my machine. Often the machine just hangs up, and I have to go and kill the Microsofty visual c++ application that pops up with the error message.
This error appeared all of a sudden one day after trying to make an online reservation on the web. I did not download anything on that day.
By the way I did not start explorer.exe, and the error comes up eventhough in the task manager, it does not show as one of the applications running.
