The last couple of days I have been trying to run GMER on my WIN 10 PC.


I am not shure if it is a GMER issue or my Pc.


When it starts the scan it only runs a few seconds then I get a full page message that windows will have to  produce a report,shut down and reboot my PC. It will collect some information and then close out and reboot the pc.


It does not give an error number but does state that GMER is trying to write something to read/only memory.


I sent an email but no reply yet.  Anyone else run across this?

GMER was written some time ago but maybe it will not work on 64 bit.

GMER is a specialized anti-rootkit tool for XP and earlier that should only be used by trained helpers - is there any reason why you are trying to run it on Windows 10?

Probably because of this thread Alex.
