I have a Compaq Presario 2100 Laptop.  I am using Windows XP with SP2.  I have a Linksys WRT54G ver2 Router and am using a Linksys Wireless G USB Network Adapter (WUSB54 v2).  I used to periodically receive pop-up messages of an access violation in the WUSB54Gv2.exe.  The message typically reads like the error message I posted, but with variations of the address.  I recently began to receive this message as frequently as 3-4 times in an evening while on my computer.   The computer freezes and I am forced to perform a shutdown via the power button.  When the computer restarts, the Linksys pop-up access violation is there.  The wireless access functions fine.  I have a good signal otherwise.

I have seen numerous blog posts regarding similar errors, but am unsure as to which advice to follow as there are many conflicting resolutions posted out on the Internet.  

All of my drivers are updated.  My windows wireless connection was interfering with the Linksys connection and the Geek Squad at Best Buy disabled it.  Since then, everything was working fine until these recent problems began.  I cannot think of anything different that I have done that would possibly have caused this problem.  I did recently install software for a Blackberry Pearl 8130 cell phone.
