Keep getting pop up that says HDTCAudit.exe - application error
The instruction at "0x0040a668" referenced memory at "0x00000000" the memory could not be "read" click ok to terminate the program.
When i go to google that HDTCAudit, i get the links for that AV2009 which i know is bad news spyware that will wreck my system.  Anyone heard of this error message and what it is referring to? Have a lenovo thinkpad T60 running Windows XP SP2  with 2 gigs ram on the system.

Thanks

Seems to me like something in the spyware that you have on your machine is trying to access part of the memory that it shouldnt be. I would be less concerned with this error message as it is only a symptom of a larger problem. I would concentrate my efforts on trying to remove the AV2009.

Once this is removed the message will probably be gone and this is probably not something you want running in the first place since it is malware. Get your spybot, adaware, spyware terminator, hijack this, etc out and get cleaning.

The site was really funny, scanning your system and finding errors in .dll and .exe files and recommending that I clean my system by running their program.... only, my system is Ubuntu Linux and their .exe doesn't work...

Clean out as fast as possible!
