I have a reoccurring problem.
I get the warning message some thing like : The instruction at "0xZe676e69" referenced memory at "0x2e676e69"
(different reference number every time)
The memory could not read , click ok to terminate
, click cancel to debug

If I click cancel to debug 9 times out of ten the application crashes.

I have checked my physical memory installed with Mem Test 86 twice and other tests and it reports working fine.

I can't see any conflicts with software. It has been occurring for some time.

What to do?

Any ideas??

Hi harryaon, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

It would help if you could provide us with the exact error. You and also look in the Event Viewer to see what errors are appearing there at those times. If you right click on the error code in the Event column and then Properties a definition of the error will be provided. Please post these and the error codes.

How much free space do you have on your hdd?

I would also help to know what your system specs are.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for your response, it is stumping me.

I can be working any program and it is affected.

I get the warning message some thing like :

The instruction at "0xZe676e69" referenced memory at "0x2e676e69" (different reference number every time)

The memory could not read , click ok to terminate, click cancel to debug

If I click cancel to debug 9 times out of ten the application crashes.

The in the application event viewer the Event ID is 100 Source: vumathd Category: none

I have a pretty new computer, Asus M2N-sli motherboard, AMD 4800 processor, 1Gb ram, probably too many programs loaded, but very well maintained.

I have also been having trouble with Opera browser hanging the whole computer when trying to download with bit torrent or Azureus.

Any ideas???

You sure you spelled the error data from Event Viewer correctly?

Yes it is the correct Even viewer, Error, Source, "vmauthd" Event ID 100

Yes I should have googled it, the google pages lead to daemon tools or VM ware virtual machine,

and to xp performance counters,here is a utility to disable performance counters which are causing problems.

XP_Counter_List_Utility.zip.html,

I will consider uninstalling Daemon tools.

For now I guess I should stop for a while before I really cause some damage. :thumbsup:

I can't see any conflicts with software.


drive emulation software is an accident waiting to happen, more than one running(and they always run, sometimes after uninstalling even) is a disaster in the making or a done deal

more than one torrent client?

you could have quad cores and 4 gigs of ram and 64 bit OS, it wouldn't matter, software conflicts are system wide

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

You are right, I will get rid of some of this excess I have been collecting.

Thanks

I used to load some standard programs a few years ago on my builds, norton's, spybot, etc. Then on a few computers people loaded AOL and it's security suite. The computers really got messed up with sets of programs trying to do the same thing at the same time. One client even got a lot of malware on his computer even with all that protection. I tried for hours to fix that computer, windows was so hosed I gave up and started over from scratch. We see people every week that install several cd/dvd burning programs, and then none of them work so they install more, when any one by itself would work.
Let 2 antivirus programs run at the same time if you really want to mess windows up. Now the real problem is uninstalling them doesn't fix the computer most of the time. People need to be very particular about what they install or reload often.
