Really annoying computer problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by cooldude0 / August 14, 2006 9:14 AM PDT

Whenever i start ANY program, an error message pops up saying:
[program name].exe - Application Error

The instructions at ''0x008cfc1f'' referenced memory at ''0x7b9870ff''. The memory could not be ''read''.

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

I always get that message whenever i start a program.
If I click on OK it will open a message that says:
Application Error
Exception EAccessViolation in module sgaurd.dll at 0000FC1F
Acces violation at address 008cfc1f in module sgaurd.dll. read of address 7B9870FF.

When i click OK the first error message will pop up and i will click OK then another error message comes up saying:
Runtime error 216 at 008C3C02.
When i click OK for this message the program doesn't start and the error messages stop poping up until I open another program or try to open it again.
When i try to open it again it will show the same error message as the first time but if I click cancel another error message pops up and it says the memory could not be read error message for drwtsn32.exe and i click OK then it shows the application error message then when i click OK the memory could not be read error message pops up again i click OK and it shows the Runtime error, then either the program will start or it won't (some programs start and some programs don't). The first ever error message like this i got was about searchindexer.exe which i have to terminate through taskmanager every time i start up my computer. I have 512 mb sdram which consists of two 256mb ram sticks with a 1.5 ghz pentium 4 processor and two hard drives, one with 20gb and the other with 70 gb a cd drive and floppy drive and finally an Ati Radeon 7500 with 64mb memory. Also one of my ram sticks is taken from my aunt's broken computer (the searchindexer.exe started before i installed the ram but the problem right now is a week after the upgrade and also the ram is detected and it works fine). I would gladly appreciate someones help!

Thank you,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
