    Hi all, I'm trying to run Windows Update on my daughters lappy but when I get prompted to install the latest release of the update software it returns an error and locks up IE8
    The error refers to an error writing to a memory address, I have attached a screenshot of the error:
    Accessing Windows Update seems to be the only time this error gets generated.
    The machine is on XP SP3

    Seems like an issue with the RAM that you have the computer, Is there any other program that throws up this error? Or is it only with the IE Update?
    Try running CCleaner and then try to update,if that fails,try the 2nd post on this link.

    It helped me earlier, hope for the best!
