I have a winxp pro computer that keeps popping up error boxes. Blue title bar is "windll" error is "Access violation at address 05683ac in module windll.exe. Read of address 00000158". The computer is running a bit slower than normal but no other issues. I've searched various parts of the error and do not find anything that matches exactly. I do not see overt signs it's infected with malware - no random internet windows, no "your system is infected, go to this site, etc, etc, etc", no redirection when on the internet.
I haven't done much trouble shooting on it other than searching the error hoping something would pop up. My next steps are to do a virus & malware scans and windows update.
Any other help would be appreciated.
