    Hi,
    For the last month whenever I connect to the internet after 5-10 mins, sometimes more or less I get this error message:
    svchost.exe - Application Error
    The instruction at "0x77f52a84" referenced memory at "0x7c54144c". The memory could not be "written".
    Click on OK to terminate the program

    After clicking on ok a box comes up and counts down 1 min till an automatic restart.

    I am using XP.

    any help will be appreciated.

    cheers

    Seems like you have the Blaster virus. First, go to: Control Panel> Admin Tools> Services. Scroll down to Remote Procedure Call. 2-click on it and choose 'Recovery'. In all three drop-down boxes, choose 'Take No Action'. That should prevent the system from rebooting.

    Then go to THIS page and download the removal tool and the patch. Read the page carfully.

    The symantec site is good but really long and sometimes confusing

    go to www.supportcave.com

    under the windows XP section is a 3 easy steps to remove it

    if u have windows 2000 do all your windowsupdates @
    windowsupdate.microsoft.com

    and do step 3 the mcafee stinger tool is great i checkes for over 42 diff virus.

    i u dont have a virus keep us updated if its still happening
