Ive got a user who keeps reciving the message:-

svchost.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x6f8916e2" referenced memory at "0x0509005c". The memory could not be "written".

Seems to be random, and nothing seems common apart from the PC being on.

Ive run a memtest and virus scan, all have come back ok.

Any ideas?

i found it to be McAfee in the end! re-installed, and seem to be ok from then!

Good luck!
