When i try to go to my computer I get an error (explorer.exe - application error The instruction at 0x774bc5f7 reference memory at 0x48e44c59. The memory could not be read.) I ran my norton 360 scan and malwarebytes scan and no virus/spyware detected. Also I ran memtest to see if my rams were bad and everything seems find. I also try to do a system restore and it fails too. Please I need help

Use Process Monitor to capture software operations.

  • Download the .zip file and extract its contents to your desktop.
    Follow these instructions if you are not familiar with how to extract files from a .zip file.
  • On the desktop, right-click procmon.exe and select Run As Administrator.
    The filter dialog box will show first.
  • Click Reset and OK.
    Process Monitor will immediately begin capturing operations.
  • Attempt to open My Computer.
  • Switch back to Process Monitor and click File > Save. Save to your desktop as capture.
  • Locate the capture file, right-click it and select Send To > Compressed (zipped) folder. A new .zip file will appear on the desktop.
  • Use a file-sharing site such as Mediafire to upload the .zip file to the internet.
  • The site will give you a link to your file. Copy/paste it in your next reply.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.
