system.ini?

#1
Hello, every single time I boot my explorer.exe crashes with this error:

Application popup: explorer.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x04376041" referenced memory at "0x04376041". The memory could not be "read".
I'm wondering if I have a problem with my system.ini file:

After explorer restarts all is fine but sometimes "memory can not be read" again with explorer when I open certain applications

yes but Windowblinds all day today with no errors - unless I reboot.

Ok I'll run a test on the memory. Thanks.

Will these suffice or do I need to run memtest?





Wow latency really suck eh?

Three should be enough but keep going if you want to. Have you tried running System File Checker?
Maybe Windowblinds has corrupted or changed a file.

Start > Run > sfc /scannow

I would but I can't remember which one is my installation disk. Rather than use my xpps1 bought from MS, I used a corpxpsp2 because I don't know how to slipstream (as of yet) and I just wanted to get it done. I have 100's of unlabeled CD's scattered all over my office.

That error is commoanly also called an access violation error. It means theres a bug in an application you are using. One of the apps you use that also interface or hook into explorer.exe (window blinds is an example, as is winrar, 7-zip, etc) needs to be re-installed at minimum or you need to look for new builds or find alternatives.

If the problem persists, run memest+ for 24 hours or more incase you have an intermittant ram issue.

If you have more then one stick of ram, remove one and run memtest on each stick individually. Sometimes the scan doesnt get em when there's more then one stick.

Thanks Admiral M. I don't see any mention of possible memory issues when searching for this problem (that may have escaped me) but I'll go ahead and test.

I just hate when my computer is offline due to being addicted to it.

How many passes each?

After noticing two explorers after the taskbar (explorer) crashed and restarted, I became suspicous of a tray app that hides icon and restores icons when explorer crashes. Problem solved.
