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.

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

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

Tjere is also a virus by the same name and please note reformatting does not always remove viruses.

Check following post for removal if it is a virus.
