AutoIt Error, Data Prevention Win32 Error, and Memory Reference Errors.... Help!!!!!!

Q: AutoIt Error, Data Prevention Win32 Error, and Memory Reference Errors.... Help!!!!!!

I dont know how this started but i need major help please.... When I turn on my computer I receive an AutoIt Error, Line -1, Something went wrong with " Object" and when i dismiss the warning later on I receive Data Executive Win32 Prevention Errors and memory reference errors. I have read alot of forums for help. I have ran malware programs, virus scans, etc.... No luck its just getting worse and slowing down my computer and now I get a blue screen when I try to boot up in safe mode and the drivers loading screen comes up. What do I do?

I read the instructions for posting this type of post, and I have attached the logs requested.

Preferred Solution: AutoIt Error, Data Prevention Win32 Error, and Memory Reference Errors.... Help!!!!!!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi all

I`m using a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. Recently, I keep getting blue screen of deaths with the error stating "Memory management".

Next, when I start up my laptop, all my programs closed under the name of "Data Execution Prevention".

Windows sidebar, MSN Messenger, Wifi, all kind of stuff closed in the name of "Data Execution Prevention" by itself. Even task manager, when I tried to open it, it tells me that too.

My firefox also crashes and reboots everytime I try to use it.

Is there any advice anyone can give or help me with my problem?


A:Data execution prevention error

In Performance Options, click the Data Execution Prevention tab, and then click Add.4. In the Open dialog box, locate and then click the program. (should be C:\Windows\explorer.exe)5.

I had a new hard drive installed, along with TrendMicro PCillin, and Webroot Spy Sweeper. These are constantly running in the background and I have only received two virus alerts. They both are scheduled to scan every 24 hours.

As I have been reinstalling programs and such, I haven't had many problems, except with trying to view folder contents and trying to open files in Photshop7. Most of the time when they crash, I don't even get an error message, it just disappears. This morning, however, I received a new error message and I took screenshots of the problem.

Viewing files in folders on My Computer is difficult. Hanging, and mini thumbnails, etc. This is what it looks like when I try to view contents of ANY folder on ANY hard drive:

This is only ONE of the error messages (and this is the first time that I got this one) I have received that I managed to screenshot:

With Photoshop7, the only error message that I have received is the "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem........" error and then PS7 closes. Most of the time, though, I get no error message and the program just closes without warning when I am either opening files or saving files.

Could this possibly be a video card problem? I have looked EVERYWHERE on the Microsoft web site, found nothing, and I have complete updates installed.

I have a HP Pavillion laptop and just bought and installed BitDefender 2009 Internet Security yesterday, switching over from Kaspersky 2008 Internet Security. Approximately 20 minutes after I installed the program, I restarted my computer and bitDefender would not open citing a "vsserv. exe Application Error". The error advised me to restart my computer and I did so, only to be faced with the error again.
I then read a post on a support forum and changed my Data Execution Prevention setting to "Turn on DEP for all Programs and Services except those I select" and added the "vsserv. exe" as advised. The startup problem then disappeared.

I proceeded to open my Windows Live Messenger and was able to communicate with all of my contacts except for one. When I click on this contact, the DEP error comes up and crashes my Messenger. I'm able to click on and talk to every single contact except for this one individual. I then checked for any Windows updates, MSN updates, driver updates, absolutely everything. Nothing worked. I turned off my antiphishing protection on BitDefender as advised on another forum, and again nothing. I've uninstalled Messenger then reinstalled it, deleted the contact and readded, absolutely everything I could think of with no luck.

Then, when I started turning on my computer I was confronted with a "hpwamain module has stopped working" error again due to DEP. From there I completely turned off DEP via command prompt ru... Read more

This is what I feared .. my new laptop starting to act up.

I received a DEP error which forced Windows Explorer AND Dr Watson Postmortem debugger to close when trying to open the Adobe Dell Users Guide or to access the control panel to view the event log for the error. (I can provide the log if needed.) This happened while I was at work on a network with a high-speed connection (probably dsl or cable). Strange thing is I was NOT surfing on Windows Explorer. On a dial-up line the same thing happens when I access the control panel or users guide(adobe).
I booted in safe mode and as I was using the Search function it happened again. But this time around, there was no DEP error message, just the normal "an error occured and windows is closing etc etc".

I updated Norton Internet Security Suite before adding any applications, which include AOL explorer, CCleaner, Tweak Regcleaner, some small work applications, Firefox, among other things. I run the spyware regularly.

I sent the error report to Microsoft for evaluation and a new window pops up. It recommends that I download an update from Earthlink!!! Wow more players. I ignored it at first then I decided, what the heck, I have nothing to lose. So far I have not seen the DEP error while accessing control panel or users guide.

Hi all,

My computer recently started experiencing frequent Data Execution Prevention messages, usually appearing when I try to close too many programs at once. It almost always occurs when I exit all of my programs prior to shutting off my computer. As I click on the "start" button, a small box appears saying something like:

Data Execution Prevention
For the safety of your computer, Windows has closed the following program: Windows Explorer

After I choose what I believe is a button titled "close message," oftentimes another error message appears saying "Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger has experienced a problem and needs to close" (or something along those lines - please bear with me as I'm typing this from my own memory).

Regardless of if the Dr Watson error message occurs, my computer usually proceeds to completely freeze and I have to turn it off manually.

It is frustrating to deal with this "Data Execution Prevention" message time and time again almost every time I close more than one window or program at a time, and especially when I'm trying to shut down my computer. This problem never occurred until a couple of weeks ago. I haven't installed anything new on the computer other than a few video editing programs (now all uninstalled except for one - TMPGEnc 4.0 to be exact), and I have RAM to spare.

Any tips? I've posted my Hijack This log below, although I'm not sure if whatever is causing the problem runs befo... Read more

A:Data Execution Prevention error from Explorer.exe

The first thing that I would suggest is to download service pack 3. Another consideration would be to switch to a stand alone browser, such as Firefox. The following information will explain why there is modicum of added security with the use of a stand alone browser.The following is an excerpt from this article."Firefox is less vulnerable to certain attacks than Internet Explorer is because it does not support ActiveX, Microsoft's technology for sharing information among applications. ActiveX allows programs to be downloaded to a computer without the user's knowledge, he says, providing opportunities to writers of viruses and spyware. "Firefox doesn't have any of that technology, and so we think that that provides users with an extra level of protection."I hope this helps.

I'm trying to help my father solve an error message he is getting when he clicks on his 'My Documents' folder. A few days ago he tried to upgrade his existing Norton Anti Virus and had some trouble. He contacted Symantec's tech support and resolved the issue. However each time he clicks on his 'My Documents' folder, he gets a Data Execution Prevention error saying that Microsoft Explorer must shut down. He does not get the message when clicking on other folders, regardless if they are on his 'Desktop' or inside his 'My Documents' folder. Example, right-clicking on 'My Computer' and selecting 'Explore' will bring up a window with 2 panes. By clicking on the + next to 'My Documents" he can see the contents and access files inside the 'My Documents' folder. However, if he clicks on the actual 'My Documents' folder he will get the error message. I have tried everything I can think of before posting, but nothing seems to work (Scan Disk, Defrag, Registry Cleaners, Uninstalling and re-installing Norton Antivirus, AdAware SE, running various utilities in 'Safe Mode', etc.).

A:Data Execution Prevention / Microsoft Explorer error

Thank you to all that have taken the time to read my post. I don't know if the problem is truly 'solved', but I turned off the DEP for Microsoft Explorer and the error message no longer occurs. While searching various forums for DEP posts I ran across one that read "many users are experiencing this issue if they have AMD 64 processors." This is what my dad has on his computer.

Anyway, the procedure for the work-around is:
1. Create the DEP error first and click whatever buttons are necessary to get back to the desktop.
2. Start->Control Panel->double-click System->Advanced Tab
3. under Performance, click Settings.
4. Click the Data Execution Prevention tab
5. Select the "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select."
*note* (In my case, since MS Explorer created the error, it is listed in the menu)
6. Put a check in the box and re-boot your computer.

Hope this helps.

Hi this is my first time posting here, but I've always found this site very useful in the past.

I have windows XP SP2 and have automatic updates. I had some malware problems and got help to fix it from reading your forums (thank goodness for google) and now I keep getting Data Execution Prevention error messages. The dialog box comes up when I try to backup Quicken, access control panel, open the recycle bin, my documents, my pictures, and Windows CD writing wizard. I just noticed this today, but I'm not sure when this started since I haven't tried to backup anything in a few days. I'm not sure what further information would be needed and the fact that I can't burn a CD is getting frustrating. Anything I've googled to turn off this annoying thing has said go to control panel - which doesn't help since that causes the darn error too. A friend of mine suggested to do a restore, but I'm afraid to try that right now.

Can anyone help me get this to stop?

Anyone have any idea why it's doing this ONLY in video thumbnails? All other folders work for my computer, except these. It doesn't do it every time, but maybe 2-4 times after I open the same folder. Thoughts?

I also can't open IE7 - it closes down with another Data Execution Prevention error.

I also get the same error trying to print to PDF Creator.

I tried copying files to a USB drive, fearing the worst. The copy fails every noe and then with a write-back error.

Finally, one of my USB drives does not get recognized (but it does on my other PC's and it used to on my problem laptop).

This is the third hard drive I have put into this laptop.

Can something in my laptop (virus, damaged files) be frying my laptop????

I use AVG Anti-virus and also scan regularly with Ad-Aware and Spybot and CCleaner.

I'm running NT4.0 with the last service pack and office 97 with SP2.
When trying to open Word I get the following error
: The instruction at '0x300333be" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".

I have reinstalled Office but still have the same problem.I have also had a look around M$ support but with no luck.

Has anyone had a similar problem or think they can help?

Thank in advance


A:Word 97 & reference memory error

Right click the MS Word shortcut on your desktop & select Properties. At the end of the Target field, leave a space after " and type /a then press ok. Double click your shortcut to execute. If it opens, then the Normal.dot will be corrupted. Close MS Word, then search your hard disk for normal.dot, right click and rename normal.old. Now restart Word & a new normal.dot will be created.

Recently I updated to 8.1, and now after maybe a week I get the occasional Instruction memory error with 0x000000 type codes.

At one point whenever I logged in it would popup with explorer.exe failed, so I wouldn't be able to do anything on the PC, I restored to a system restore point and it now is gone, however I will see it every now and again. Not a big deal now, but I would like to repair it if possible, as it obviously can't be doing any good for the PC.

Hi ,

I need a help from you people. My xp system is having the following problem since last week. The message is as follows


The instruction at "0x7ffa4512" referenced memory at "0x7ffa4512". The memory could not be written.

You are asked to press ok. and if pressed ok the system hangs.

If you try to restart or shut down the machine, the system shuts down till closing the explorer.exe and the system clears the icons and task bar from the screen and hangs displaying the wall paper. I need to manually switch of the computer or reset if i need to use it further. This happens only when i work more than an hour or so.

Please help me.

I have a development setup running in this machine with Netbeans, java, mysql etc

The machine is of 2gb ram

Please help me soon.

Hi, I created a notepad .txt file that only had a phone number I typed in it and when I tried opening it earlier a Data Execution Prevention error popped up. Image from another source: http://sf7.santu.com/kb/admin/attachments/Data_Execution_Prevention_blocked_program.png

I can click the same file I created now and it does not occur. Is there a way to look up the error message that happened earlier? I would like to view the event that occurred. Has this been known to happen once in a blue moon?

Last week, I upgraded my computer with a new motherboard and cpu. I have been having odd problems ever since.

First, I had to do a rescue reinstall of windows XP before before I could boot up the computer as it went into an immediate, continuous reboot cycle without getting to the "Welcome" screen. Fixed that and I've been having problems since.

The biggest one is that I get continuous "Data Execution Prevention" messages for Windows Explorer whenever I try to pull a directory of any drive or do a search. Nor can I get my pda to hotsync, even though I've replaced the cradle twice. It continues not to recognize the usb connection.

I've run spyware scans and virus scans and found nothing.

Anyway, here's my computer stats:
Windows XP Pro SP2
1.85 GHz AMD Athlon 64 3000 cpu
KV2 mothergoard
1024 Mg RAM

so it happened one day... what do?
im running Vista Home Premium SP1 if thats any help (probably not) so i thought i might turn DEP off to see it might solve the problem, but i couldn't turn it off. it wanted me to run bcdedit.exe with administrator privileges, which i did but the only thing that happened was the command prompt popping up for a split second.
examples of applications are: Windows Live Messenger, windows updater (these 2 happened once), JavaUpdater, and some stuff i forgot.

i bookmarked this so i should respond relatively fast.

oops, what actually happens is like this:
1. attempts to run application
2. said application does not respond! oh noes!
3. said application is said to crash due to DEP
4. said application is unable to work at all even after reinstalls, multiple restarts, etc.

A:"Data Execution Prevention" errors from applications that never had them

You're running Vista SP1? Do you ever update it? If not you probably should. Or do you have 64-bit Vista? In which case I don't know why you'd be having memory problems. How much RAM do you have ect.?Take a look at this link for an explanation. Before you try something like this I'd recommend making sure your system is up to date. Also make sure there aren't a bunch of programs running in the background taking up resources, as it sounds like this might be a memory issue.

I have a Windows XP Pro SP2 installed in my laptop. I use a datacard to access the Internet.
I have Quickheal Antivirus Total Security 2009 installed too.
When I boot my computer(s) and log in for the first time, a window appears
telling me that "Data Execution Prevention" (DEP) has prevented a program
from starting that could possibly contain malicious code. "Generic Host
Process for Win32 Services" is the culprit, a code published by Microsoft
Corporation -!
The subsequent multiple error messages are the generic XP messages
indicating that "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" encountered a
problem and needed to be closed. Please send Microsoft....... If I send the
error report to Microsoft, the error repeats. If I don't, I only get it once
Sometimes my Internet connection stops working after this.
Please advice some solution.
Best regards,

Search for .dmp and .mdmp files in your computer. These are "dump" files Windows creates that logs whatever happened to make your computer display such messages.To search, go to My Computer and press Ctrl+F on your keyboard. Choose "search all files and folders" and search "*.dmp" and "*.mdmp", without the parentheses of course.This topic - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176011/how-to-receive-help-diagnosing-blue-screens-and-windows-crashes/ - shows you how to analyze them and search for errors.

Below is the log from my HiJackThis scan. I don't know enough not to delete files I may need. I wasn't thinking about virus/malware protection when I first started using this computer wirelessly at home. AVG free anti-virus identified a trojan horse system32 ... something. I looked it up online and read a bunch of comments that it was a false positive. So, I uninstalled AVG and started using Avast! to avoid the constant AVG notices about it. Now, with Avast! I'm also getting memory reference errors that are closing web pages on me. (Earthlink is no longer my ISP. I'd be happy to remove any of that installed software. No matter what the version of it has been, it has gunked up every computer I've ever used it on.)All suggestions are appreciated.Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 7:00:16 PM, on 12/29/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16574)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\aswUpdSv.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashServ.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug...

A:Trojan Horse And Memory Reference Errors

Hello Modron and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I would definitely recommend removing the Earthlink software if you no longer use it. ISP's like Earthlink and AOL do alot more than just install a couple of files with their software. They make many system changes that affect the Internet connection. Having more than one of those ISP packages installed at the same time could very well be the root cause of any connection and/or browser issues.Also, your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
