The Memory could not be written???

sean_lai
The instruction at "0x7e41d7f9" referenced memory at "0x7e41d7f9". The memory could not be written.
I am facing this string of error for a couple of .exe application such as Notepad, Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer and the Windows Help centre, on top of that I also facing error like "Run a DLL as an App has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience".

Can anyone help to resolve this issue?

    Does the second error occur when you attempt to do a System Restore?
    If so, this article may apply:

    Do not follow the article's recommendations unless you are unable to perform a System Restore as it will delete all currently available restore points.

    If you can, I would first try to perform a XP System Restore to a date prior to when the issue first started occurring. (Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore). This can also be done in Safe Mode.

    The reference memory error may be related to a bad RAM module or a trojan virus.

    To perform a full RAM test use MemTest86:
    (http://www.memtest.org/).
    It may take over four hours to complete the test.
    Use the boot CD option to run it.

    Then IF that test does not turn up any problems, use AVG (http://tinyurl.com/fky54) or your own anti-virus program, with the latest virus definitions, perform a full system scan in Safe Mode. You can also use McAfee Stinger (http://tinyurl.com/1x4v).

    Here is a good free on-line scan offered by BitDefender: http://tinyurl.com/aauh5 .
    And another by TrendMicro: http://tinyurl.com/2xis .

    I would also use this tool: RootKitRevealer (http://tinyurl.com/y3hgq9)
    or AVG's free RootKit detector and Remover: (http://tinyurl.com/35jq2t)

    If you determine that there is indeed a virus involved,
    I recommend you go here:

    TrendMicro has always been my favorite source for virus information and removal.

    My second choice would be BitDefender. Here's a link to their extensive library of free removal tools:

    Please let me know what resolves your issue.
    Good Luck
