I get this message along the lines of " can't read memory 000000.00 or something like that right before system shuts off when I am turning it off. I don't even have time to click on the option it gives me before the system shuts down. This seems to have started when i installed ad-block, but other than the worrisome message I haven't noticed any problems.

Thanks for your help.

If you uninstall ad-block does the error go away?

Have you tried increasing the size of your swap file (virtual memory)? I have seen on other forums where having too small a swap file caused this problem.
There is no justice, there is just us.

I had the same error until I uninstalled ad-block.

Well, I'll never forget how fouled up my PC became after trying to uninstall a pop-up blocker by some outfit called "Zillasoft". I'd had Mozilla on the machine a day maybe and I stumbled upon this site that seemed like they had some good add-ons.

Ouch...I ended up re-formating for pete's sake.

Have you done any checking in the about:config?

All open source Mozilla-based software can be viewed & modified by simply
typing in about:config into the browser address field.
Hit "go" (or maybe even enter on your keyboard)
Anyway, the info you find there is not to be tampered with.
Unless you're up on it.
But you can see what changes have been made since install.
Non-default ones should be in bold-face.
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Ad-block didnt do much for me and didnt seem to have any application on most of the sites I visit so I simply removed it and have not had any problems since. I have so many anti-spyware, pop-up blockers, anti-mal-aware, anti-adaware apps on this thing that 1 less shouldn't hurt.

Thanks for your advice
