  1. as of now...problem is solved...ran steganos shredder and then did a trace destruction and rebooted and voila....i can right click an icon and get options instead of an error message..... im keeping my fingers crossed and hopefully this doesnt come back to bite me... thanks to all of you who helped noodle this and troubleshoot......... :cool:
  2. ive done everything i can think of....i even called in my bro-in-law to take a looky at it....he did a few of his tricks and still same problem... soooooo any more suggestions are still welcome.....
  3. thanks everyone for the suggestions...ive done all of the above mentioned things...i checked the RAM ...now i havent swapped sticks...i have two...im no stranger to formatting and re-installing..lol so this is more and more looking like the only solution....and i pray the HD isnt on thew way out...but im already in the process of backing things up... thanks again for all the suggestions....and ill keep e1 updated...
  4. well that didnt work either... and now everytime i try to use winamp i get that damn message again...so i cant use winamp now.... this is sounding more and more like a lost cause....sorry for the pessimism...but its frustrating
  5. disreguard the last message i did that and the problem remains....... im trying one more thing though...
  6. one more thing....if i do this...you said i wont need to backup my files...everythinbg i have on here will remain status-quo?
  7. ohhhhh with pics!!?? lol ill try it and lat you know...
  8. found my XP cd and i tried that and all i got was a list of commands like in old DOS...(which i never mastrered) and i was lost...so repairing like that didnt work... i opened up my CPU and checked everything and it all looked fine...nothing loose or whatnot...not even much dust im wondering if a rollback a ways back would fix this....or will the problem still persist?
  9. well i need to find my xp cd... also what do you mean re-seating my ram modules? do you mean that the RAM chip may be loose? forgive the dumb question...i know a few things about computers...but still learning thanx
  10. hey all...got the chance to work some OT...so i couldnt turn it down...who says no to extra cash?? ok i followed the advice and i went to MS and says this is an error that usually is displayed with SP1...problem is i have SP2 and all the updates...updated.. grr resopalrabotnick you said it sounds like to you somethings borking around... elaobrate please..and watch your borking mouth... wife sugested i re-install windows.......but its still a minor problem and not worth re-backing up everything and reinstalling the OS....i seriously think she did this to make me upset and frustrated and go and buy vista...she didnt know of my connection here though thanks again for the asst
  11. thanx...ill get onto it tomorrow...have to work shortly... ill let you guys know if it works
  12. yes...it was one of the 1st things i did....a warm boot @ first,.....then the same thing happened and so i did a shutdown cold boot when i click either option (OK or Cancel) it looks as if explorer is crashing i lose all my icons on the background ...but then they re-appear and alls well..until i again try to right click an icon or whatnot and the situation repeats itself.... hope that helped... i also scanned for viruses...none scanned for mal=ware...etc with a2...again nothing... spybot...same thing...no threats.. im somewhat computer savvy but this is a stumper for me.....unless its so simple and its right under my nose...
  13. hey hey my fellow speed freaks and computer gurus...i have a problem..(what a surprise huh?lol) :undecided: OK heres the situation.... i want to right click on a file...or a song to check on properties...and instead of things running smoothly....i get this... "Instruction at '0x0267e7d1' referenced memory at "0x00000000" "The memory could not be read" click OK to terminate click cancel to debug this is something i have not run across besides when i was running WIN-95 those many eons ago.... so i call on you guys to see whats going on... my big question is...referencing the "memory" hell i have 1.5GB of memory and ALOT of it is still free... so here i am stumped and PO'd that i cant figure out WTF the problem is.... any and all notes or suggestions or fixes are greatly appreciated!! thanks PS this may also be something very simple ive overlooked and it takes 2 mins or so to fix...in that case...please dont me...lol thanks again...
