Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I have the same problem, "THE INSTRUCTION AT "0X788099C3" REFERENCED MEMORY AT "OX000000000". THE MEMORY COULD NOT BE "READ". The best solution so far that I've done is restore my system in the most stable restore point possible, the program(s) work. Even the bootstrapper doesn't work when you uninstall or repair a particular program.
Whenever i used to exit internet explorer i used to get a "memory could not be read" error.
A few days back i reinstalled my entire windows xp professional and upgraded the system and its running on IE 8. But IE has been crashing constantly and the same error, as shown below, has started showing up every time.
"the instruction at "0x2c0e7132" referenced memory at "0x2c0e7132". the memory could not be read".
I have installed TuneUp utlities and did a registry clean, etc. But no use. The same error keeps showing up. I even did the SFC check but it said everything is fine.
As you have said in your article above i have reinstalled my system but still same error. There are no viruses or spyware either. and IE has no addons.
can you please help me with this?
Thanks a ton

Leo, Many thanks for this very good explanation on the problem. I knew there was no easy solution out there to this problem. The error message also always says: "press cancel to DEBUG". What does the debugging do? can it eventually solve the problem?
Ah yes, this is a problem indeed. The message itself is a bit short to hold any value information, or does it? This is not all just a windows-related matter, on LINUX, the program just shuts of, while in windoes you get the message. After working out what the problem was, I came to that the motherboard needed a new BIOS. Now everyone ask the question: "How will that help me?" Download the latest BIOS to your motherboard and install it. Just a short answer to what was my problem.
This is how i came up with the solution: I was in an 3D-program when i tried to do a simple task, but everytime the message came up in Windows several times, so i tried the program in LUNIX, and the same problem persisted in the exakt same place. I tried to re-install... but no use, same problem. Then it was of to hardware. Switcehd motherboard with exakt same CPU, graphics etc, and problem fixed. But wanted to have the old motherboard back, so i switcehd back, and problem appeared again. Downloaded a brand new BIOS, compatible with the motherboard and problem solved.
Good luck yall!
The instruction at 0x5ff3d322 referenced memory at 0x8d3cd7ap The memory could not be read pops up 2x's every time i close a tap or internet explorer. i have XP on my acer please help
when i want to open fifa world club 2002 there is a comment about referenced memory 100d6 but the momory is ooo13
It's a Svchost.exe error and has to do with a corrupted windows xp update... http://www.pchell.com/support/svchosterror.shtml
There's a reason you don't take your car to just any mechanic. Because MOST are kinda useless.
I found a solution for an error message on start up that states that memory could not be written at 0x7c91b21a 0x00000010. It appears the latest update for Windows Media Player is causing this problem if the Service, Windows Driver Foundation. is turned on. It needs to be disabled. I found this at Bleeping Computers and this solution worked for me. Cathy
the instruction at 0xxxxxxx referenced memory at ''0xrrrrrrr the memory could be read
click ok to terminate the Program.
I use FF and only use IE for those pages that cunningly only function 100% in IE .
I read realms of responses and carried out those instructions that did not require purchasing a product fix.
After finding the message remained my fix resulted from removing my CA anti virus program!
Now have another AVP operating with out any problem.
I tried to open Everquest and i get the error "The instruction at 0x032ae086 referenced memory at 0x00000044. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program". My OS is Windows 7 starter. I'm running AVG for my anti-virus and everything is up to date, and I haven't made any changes to my computer
To post a comment on "How do I fix "The instruction at -- referenced memory at --. The memory could not be read."?", please return
