Hi Everbody,

I hope someone can help me with this problem.

A "SearchFilterHost.exe - Application Error" Box keep appearing. It states: "The instruction at (different values) referenced memory at "0x00000014". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program".

It seems to have appeared after I cleaned up a virus and used a registry cleaner afterwards. Windows restore, registry repairs, different virus scanners etc. have not been able to change the popups. They are infrequent and do not seem to have any links with certain programs running.

I would be grateful for any help

If you have Windows Search 4.0 installed...I would uninstall it.

Thanks for your replies.

I previously today uninstalled and reinstalled Windows Search 4 but it didn't fix the problem. Wouldn't uninstalling the program totally cause a lot of problems with organising data etc? While it was uninstalled it affected outlook, explorer etc.

I didn't suggest reinstalling...it's a worthless system home when installed on XP, IMO...it's designed for Vista and Win 7 and it adds nothing to XP's functioning efficiently.

I installed it some time ago, tried it for a few days...uninstalled it. My system did not disintegrate at all, I experienced no ill effects. It's not a mnadatory program, it's not even a part of Windows XP...until someone installs it. That is counteracted by uninstalling it.

Dear Louis,

Very interesting, however, if Search 4 is not installed what takes care of indexing and organising outlook, Media Player etc???

The link you gave me is "not available"?!?

Thanks for helping

JBR
