    Application Error : The instruction at "0x01783195" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".


    Everytime I exit almost every program on my computer, it comes up with this error message with the application exe name in front of Application error. Anyone know a quick fix for this? Thanks alot in advance, dave

    Unfortunately this could be hundreds of things including a virus, ad-ware / spy-ware, conflict with other software, etc.

    You could try and run a complete virus scan on your system and also use a good software package for killing ads/spyware.

    That's all I can think of I'm afraid.

    Darn!..well OK. I just ran a virus scan, and it came up with 0 viruses. Adware, I am highly careful about, and do weekly scans always turning up with 0 results. I also posted this in another forum on a different website, and had a reply saying that he reinstalled his w2k pro which was having this problem, and it fixed it. I don't really want to go that route, but if it is absolutely necessary, I want to save all my data by doing a in place re-install. Is this possible one at all, and second using the included emachines restore cd (dk if it is actually xp home, or just a hd image that reverts computer to factory settings)

    Maybe you should go ahead and reinstall, it may get rid of the error?
