Running ME on an HP8260. On START-UP, I get the following message: Title bar says <APPLICATION ERROR> and the pop-up says <Exception EAccess Violation in module WNAD-UPDATE.EXE at 00028FF6. Access violation at address 00428FF6 in module WNAD-UPDATE.EXE'. Read of address FFFFFFFF.>

I say OK and another pop-up has a title bar of Wnad-update and the message says <Wnad-update has caused an error in <unknown>. Wnad-update will now close. If you continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer.>

The restart does not help.

Ideas?

Thanks,

Take a look here: http://www.cexx.org/osama.htm

Incidentally, <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.net/index.html">Ad-Aware</A> removes it. This is a program which scans your system for spyware.

After having downloaded AAW, also download the latest Signature file (Reflist.sig) : http://www.lavasoftusa.net/aaw/binary/reflist.zip
Unpack it to the Lavasoft Ad-Aware folder in Program Files, and have it overwrite the one that's there.

Then have your drives and registry scanned for spyware, check all found files and reg keys, click continue, and have them removed.
Reboot.

Good luck,
