WMIPRVSE.exe Error

I am continually getting an error message that says:
WMIPRVSE.exe - Application Error
The instruction at 0x7c91103c referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be "written".

I reinstalled WinXP (repaired the current install) and still get the error.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Sounds like you could have some bad sectors on your hdd.

Put your windows disk back in launch the recovery console and run chkdsk
ALso run
