    Hi, I keep getting an error message saying:



    The instruction at "0x..." referenced memory at "0x....". The memory could not be "read."


    The last time it happened I made a note of the pointers (I think they're called pointers :S)
    respectively "0x004069b8" and "0x00000000"

    After it comes up, all applications appear to freeze and the laptop loses responsiveness

    It happened again last night with exactly the same pointers:

    The instruction at "0x004069b8" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read." And then there was another message after saying

    The exception unknown software exception (0xc00000fd) occurred in the application at location 0x7e4185e3
