Hello everyone

Can anyone help me correct an error.

After I have checked messages in hotmail (I have a separate OE acc.)and leave the program I get a window come up on the screen saying..........

The instruction of ''Ox100097a0'' referenced memory at ''Ox100097a0''.The memory cannot be read.
Click O/K to terminate program.

I click and all is well again.....but I would like to get rid of the pop up.

Any help would be appreciated

Not a pop-up...

It sounds like an error occured in the program you were using (or another running in the background), and your operating system notified you of such. Thus, it wasn't a pop-up in the sense of an advertisement. If this has only happened once, I'd just ignore the glitch. However, it it happens repeatedly, please provide more information (including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem), as requested in the red text when you submitted your post.

Also, when you say you'd like to get rid of the pop-up, do you mean the box remained after you clicked "OK?" If so, please be a little more specific. However, if you mean prevent it from happening again, it's almost impossible, as the error message didn't mention a specific program/file, and supplemental information from yourself hasn't been provided.

Hope this helps,

Repair Internet Explorer...
by John.Wilkinson / July 23, 2005 11:57 AM PDT

It sounds like Microsoft Internet Explorer has somehow become corrupt, and since Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer (utility used to navigate the files on your computer) are linked at the head, hip, and feet, you are receiving the error message even you're not using IE. I've had the same thing happen, but ended up repairing Windows due to other problems occuring as well. However, you might want to try repairing/reinstalling Internet Explorer by following these directions from Microsoft. Afterwards, run a Windows Update scan to verify you are running the latest version.

Hope this helps,

Utilty for System Info

You may want to install BELARC or
Everest at

They help you too explain the make and model of all of your PC System Info.

It is good to use Windows Update on a regular basis and also connect to your PC vendor's website and update your firmware, etc.
