So my computer has been freezing up within five minutes or less after loading up. I generally get an error message such as UMDDFAPI.EXE - application error, with the explanation, "The instruction at '0x8c80d189' referenced memory at '0xfc85c6ft', the memory could not be read". I click on OK and the computer starts to freeze. A blue screen comes up with "Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" as the error. Loading up my computer again, I check the Tasklist and it says that a RunOnce program is running. If I try to stop the process, the computer freezes. If I let it run, it goes to the blue screen. I've gone into safemode and done a Norton Antivrus check and it doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried the Spybot and Adaware programs. But maybe the problem isn't a virus, but something wrong with the memory? I have no idea.
