Have a new PC, Win 7 32-bit, 4GM RAM, Optiplex 790.

When user shuts down, they get the error message:

The instruction @ 0x70e58601 referenced memory at 0x70e58601. The memory cannot be written.

First couple searches asked me to disable DEP, but unsure if disabling a feature would produce the resolution.

Any ideas?

nick_kessler--If that is the only advice you have so far, it really is not so hard to try it

Most suggestions for Vista will work in Win 7.

True, but disabling a feature such as DEP to prevent a shutdown error seems like a "fix" but not a solution to the problem.

I will test disabling DEP for Explorer as I beleive that is what's causing the error...

Disabling DEP would also disable PAE, which means the 32-bit OS would not fully utilize all 4GB of memory.
