Winlogon application error the memory could not be read


To fix such type of issue, try the followings.

First, increase your “Virtual RAM” size. “Virtual RAM” means a disk space specified for system to read and write data as if it were a RAM. To increase its size,

  1. Go to My Computer >> “Advanced” tab >> under “Performance”, click “Settings”.
  2. Open “Advanced” tab.
  3. From “Virtual memory” section, click “Change”.
  4. Uncheck “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives”.
  5. Check the radio button after “Custom size”.
  6. Set the paging file size. The “Initial” means the minimum space, “Maximum” means highest space. I recommend to increase both field’s rate to 4096 MB, which will be 2 GB.
  7. Press “OK”.
  8. Restart your PC.

Also, install the latest update of the software. It is recommended because many software have bug inside their system core and causes crashes due to poor coding.

Check your system files with default system file cleaner. Open an elevated Command Prompt, run this command: sfc /scannow

If possible, restore your system to an early point. Start “C:WindowsSystem32rstrui.exe”, choose a restore point and restore your system.

You can also try using a good registry cleaner. I’d like to recommend you to use Wise Registry Cleaner.
