My PC was running great until recently.
I am getting an error that reads >
svchost.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x75606e6a" referenced memory at "0x00000008". The memory could not be "read"
Click OK to terminate the program

My computer seems to freeze sometimes randomly when I am trying to access different programs.. And most of the time the programs wont even try to run.

When I reboot, the computer seems to be quicker sometimes, and slower others..

Can anyone help me? I have read a few different threads already, and I have tried a few things they suggested, but no luck yet.

Save me!! :thumbsup:

This is worth a glance:

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

I would try a System Restore before making changes in the Registry. Find a date prior to this problem and use it.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.
The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore, you may get the message telling you that you will have to restart your computer to start, click ok. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

If this doesn't work and you wish to try the registry fix I would suggest that you backup the registry first. If you make a mistake editing the registry you can render your computer inoperable. ERUNT is a good application for this.

[*]Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
[*]For version with the Installer:
Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
[*]For the zipped version:
Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
[/list]Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERUNT.exe

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

The problem i am having definitely seems like some sort of spyware or malware.
When I click links on the internet, they tend to get re-routed about 80% of the time.

I tried the system restore, It will let me access the first part of the system restore where I choose an earlier date. But when I click "next" It just doesnt do anything, It will let me click Back or Cancel only.
