You don't mention what you HAVE "tried."
Have you updated and run anti-virus and anti-spyware scans? If any virus or spy ware is found you should repair, remove or quarantine it then immediately delete all backups such as System Restore points. Right Click on My Computer > left click on Properties > System Restore tab > Place a check beside "Turn of System Restore...." > and click Apply. Then remove the check and click Apply to turn SR back on.
Have you run the system file checker. Start > Run > type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. Note that there is a space typed between sfc and /scannow. Then click OK and follow the prompts. You may be asked to insert the XP cd. If you do not have the cd and you are presented with a path dialog window, type in "C:\WINDOWS\I386" without the quotes and click OK.
Hope something here is of help,
Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me out with this. My PC crashed yesterday and upon rebooting I recieved the following "error message when the log on screen appeared. Once I logged on I did some digging and found that it had "Disabled" all of the Services in the Administrative Tools section.
svchost.exe - Application error:
The intruction at "0x7c918fea" referenced memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be "written".
Click OK to terminate the program
I have "Googled this error message and there were many different pages with advice on what to do. I have done quite a few of them and have had no luck in resolving my problem what so ever. It doesn't seem to keep any applications from running or slow the old machine down, it is just a one click annoyance.
Would appreciate any help with this minor annoyance.
