The memory could not be “read”

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hello everyone,

I need your help……

So, my problem is when I open windows on Windows XP or Internet sites or applications, after a while when I'm at work, I wander a message that says:

(The instruction at "0x1003fa55" uses memory address "0x08ab4aac." The memory could not be "read" So Click OK to terminate the program. Click Cancel to debug the program).

And all windows are closed. Please tell me, how to solve this problem, because it's starting to bother me much.

Thank you to all.

You should have included the browser you are using. For example Internet explorer, Firefox, Chrome etc.

  • If you are visiting links with too long URL's then that message would normally appear. The reason for that is information is not properly stored in Index.Dat file that is located in the %userprofile%Local SettingsHistory folder.
  • There are a couple of options that would resolve this issue.
  • First is to clear the Temporary internet files and History cache. It depends on the browser you are using.

In Mozilla Firefox and Cometbird

  1. Start the browser                                                                                                                                                                                                
  2. On the tools menu, click options                                                                                                                                                                      
  3. Select Privacy                                                                                                                                                                                                       
  4. Perform the two operations: Clear your recent history    and    Delete individual cookies                                                                    
  5. After successfully performing step 4, restart the browser.

Second option is to clear your history folder.

  1. Access windows explorer by selecting My Computer.   
  2. On the Tools Menu, select folder options
  3. On the folder options, select view and scroll down to look for files and folders
  4. There are only two options on the files and folder. Just select show hidden files and folders and click OK since you are looking for a hidden file.
  5. Locate the %userprofile%Local SettingsHistory folder for the user who is experiencing the problem. This could be found in C:/documents and settings/Usersprofile.  Note that the Userprofile is the administrator or the one experiencing the problem.
  6. Delete the History folder 
  7. Delete Temp folder.
  8. Delete temporary internet files folder but must open the folder first and delete all the files inside otherwise an error message would display that cannot delete contents of this folder.                                                                                                                        

Hope the above info helps

Thank you

Dear Alexander Stevens,

Thanks for asking.

Dear I hope your computer is infected by a virus. In fact this is a virus which attacks again and again on your computer.

And it is spoiling the window's kernel files.

The kernel files of windows are used to maintain security while exploring. So these files have been infected and failed to continue their work.

I suggest you to use Antivirus software. Please scan your computer with Antivirus. 

After scanning for viruses, your computer will be in good form as well.

I hope it will help you.
