Hi BleepingComputer ;)

Here is a problem I'm faced with currently:

Windows XP Home Edition SP3

services.exe - Application Error from browsing in Opera, Firefox and Internet Explorer

The instruction at "0x7c90e823" referenced memory at "0x0000000". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

Upon clicking OK or CANCEL I am brought up to a autoshutdown window with a 60 second countdown.
The countdown states Status Code: -1073741819

I have tried to shutdown /a and shutdown -a and it solves my problem for about 1 minute before I'm presented with a blue screen of death with Technical Information: *** STOP 0x0000008E




I have searched through HJT logs and have ran numerous virus/trojan scanners (AVG Free, McAfee, TrendMicro, Panda etc.) and have cleared my computer from one trojan in AVG Free which seems to be unrelated. I have looked through various Google search items to no avail.

Here is my thing - after straining over this for a few days I have stumbled upon a rather curious reason. I noticed I only received the Application Error when logging into www.gmail.com. If I log in and view in "Basic HTML view" I am not presented with the dreaful Application Error; however, when I load the "Standard View" I am immediately presented with the Application Error. I did a bit of research and GMail's Standard View seems to be heavily dependent on Java!

MySpace causes crashes when I view certain profiles (once with javascripts), Gmail causes a crash and any Java-enabled website.

I think my problem is Java.

I uninstalled any occurences of Java via Add/Remove programs and deleted registry items of Java. I reinstalled Java 6 and I am still getting the same errors.

I want to believe it is only Java causing this but I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my situation. Excuse the lengthy post please but I'm desperate in solving this Application Error!

Starting Windows in Safe Mode with Networking allows me to visit gmail.com and view in its Standard View without any problems. I'm sure this will prove vital in helping determine the root of this problem.

Thank you.

Problem seems to be fixed fellas.

Through process of elimination - I have found out the services.exe application error was due to bad RAM. I pulled out one stick and left one in and vice versa and one proved to be faulty when "trying" to read (in our case load memory) anything that required high usage of memory.

Thank you for reading ;)
