    Only happens when using Explorer!!!! (Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack

    I receive this error frequently when trying to access CNN.com or other similar news web sites at work.

    "Instruction at 0x77fccaad referenced memory at 0x49644136. The memory could not be written" Then explorer has to shutdown, then I have to start over, this error happens frequently. I don't have any problems with other microsoft products, just explorer. Any ideas?????

    Its a Dell machine with Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4
    Pentium 4, 2.4 Ghz, 256MB Ram

    There is a lot of video content at CNN, as well as third party rich advertising. You might update your Flash player, your Microsoft/Real/Quicktime players, and Java. Perhaps prioritize by what the site uses the most.

    Scott,

    Right on! Don't know how I got that double entry in the link but I corrected it.

    I usually check any link that I post but got distracted somehow, I guess? <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Thanks. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Run a test on your existing RAM with something like Memtest86 or another test prog for your memory
    Get it HERE

    Also consider adding another 256 of RAM.

    No Problem !

    I used this program before several moons ago and "lost" it when going from one PC to another. I have now downloaded (currently burning onto CD) to be retained for further use. Always nice to get familiar programs back.
