i am running a window xp professional
i never had this problem before
my com keeps having a pop up msg that says <calc.exe application error. The instruction at 0x0390000 refrence memory at 0x00390000. the memory could not be written. click OK to terminate the program. click cancel to debug the program >
it pops up every 5 sec and the calc.exe keeps running itself.
i tried to block the calc.exe but everytime i do that, the com shuts down.
i also tried deleting it from the system 32 but reappears after every 5 sec.
i ran sdfix but problem still persist.


i cannot run any of my full-screen games as it would cause the computer to restart.
the popup stops right after i end my IEXPLORER.exe but it does not allows me to run my games.
my anti virus and anti malware could not detect anything.
is there any solution where i do not have to format my computer or reinstall windows??
please help and any help would be greatly appreciated


thanks for reading my problem and special thanks to those who is able to help.

Hello hellhang and welcome to BC :thumbsup:

I see that you have an HJT log posted here:

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted

OR

2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Topic reopened and HiJack This log deleted.

Hellhang,

Some additional information would be helpful:

At what point does the error message come up: When booting, just after booting, or . . . ?

Are you experiencing other issues?
