Hello everyone I am using HP desktop & running Windows XP with 504 MB of
RAM. I recently had to do a complete system wipe out (over Christmas
holiday) & redo my windows back to factory. Since I done that my
computer has been running great until a few weeks ago I started getting a
dialog box popping up everytime I either put something into my recycle
bin or have been on Internet Explorer for a while.Now it is even doing
it just about everytime I open,close or move a folder. In the dialog box
the message is " THE INSTRUCTION AT "078310800" REFERENCED MEMORY AT
PROGRAM OR CLICK CANCEL TO DEBUG" I click ok & everything on my screen
goes blank but comes back but when I click cancel it does the samething
but freezes up for a couple of minutes then says the debugger has
encountered a problem. I am getting annoyed with the problem cause I
cannot do anything without the dialog box coming up. I have tried just
about everything I can think of. Any help correcting the problem is
greatly appreciated.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Unfortunately...this could be any number of items. You might take a look at some of them:


I would start out with eliminating malware as a possible cause, especially so if malware was the cause of the December system troubles.

Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the times that this is happening.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

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

I did as you instructed by going to my computer & right clicking. In the system there are no red dots.... but there are several warning triangles. Do I need to open the message up on those errors & post them here for you to see?
