keep getting this error on booting windows, have gone through all my services to find the culprit but not able to isolate the cause, I suspect its something in my registry but I am not sure. I boot in normal (that is i don't use config.sys to boot), have run malwarebytes scans, also avg8.5 and superantispyware also since I just had system cleaned I don't 'think' its another virus..unless its part of something left over? I'm just not sure...I'm really trying to avoid 'just re-install windows'.

WinXP SP3, on a HP pavilion dv9000

error msg:

svchost.exe - application
0x7c91b21a referenced memory at 0x00000010 memory could not be written

no other issues occur after the error, I close the msg box and everything else seems fine

thanks for any advice in advance :thumbsup:

Worth reading, without necessarily believing all comments, http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en...76-912febee58fd

Personally, I would check Event Viewer and hope that I can find more clues to whatever is wrong. I don't like guessing randomly.

From your second link:

1- Go to Control Panel 2- Administrative Tools 3- Services
4- go to the following Service : ( Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework ) Right Click then choose Properties ----> in the start up type choose Disabled.
Then reboot the system.
This should do the trick and stop the error from appearing at the login screen. I guess that Windows MediaPlayer 11 is the one responsible for this error.
Hope this helps you.
Kindly post your result

Bolded service was casuing the problem, disabling has removed the error, this makes sense as I upgraded to SP3 and they snuck that media player 11 in to when I was updating my Windows lol.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
