XP pro machine, was having an issue with itunes not working and when through the uninstall process removing itunes, quicktime itunes application helper bounjour and some others in the order recommended by apple.
When i rebooted i got this:
svchost.exe - Application error:
The instruction at "0x7d4caa9b" referenced memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be "read."

Ive been through the few solutions ive found though google with no success.
Any ideas what is happening and how to resolve?

an update:
I ran a system restore back a couple days and everything seemed to be fine, except Firefox wouldn't load, so i re downloaded and installed Firefox with IE now everything seems back to normal.
still curious as to what happened.

I could guess...when you uninstalled one of the apps you mentioned...the update/phone home mechanism was removed but part of it remained behind.

"The memory could not be "read." message is often a sign of some infection.
I suggest, you travel to "Am I Infected?" forum and make sure, your computer is clean.
