    Having carelessly deleted some files that were clearly more important than I realised, I now get this error message on booting up:

    The instruction at "0x7d4caa9b" referenced memory at 0x00000010". The memory could not be "read"

    Click OK to terminate
    Click CANCEL to debug

    I now have no internet access and a machine that takes ages to boot up - I don't know what else might be wrong. I tried doing a System Restore but received the message that this couldn't be done - have tried two different dates without success.

    Help! I'd very much appreciate some assistance on this if anyone has any ideas...

    Best regards,
    Nick

    Try a system repair.

    Boot from your installation CD then igone the first repair option (Console) and goto to second repair option.
    You may need your COA key number ready.

    Don't forget to reapply any service packs, also you may have to reload I.E. 7.
    Download the Google version as this will also fix any errors in I.E.

    Brilliant Sparky.... I had tried System Restore but it wouldn't let me do it. Never thought of trying it in Safe Mode... did it and yes, everything is back to normal. Wonderful - thanks so much!

    Zebulebu... your response sounded a bit testy - hadn't I thought of Google..? Well actually I had of course and I'd seen that solution plus a number of others that all refer to the problem being with Windows Update. I never felt it was that, so came looking for other solutions - found it!!

    Thanks again Sparky..

    But that problem WAS with Windows Update. If you'd followed the advice in the link you'd have found that out. Just running a System Restore is like using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut - why not attempt to actually fix the problem, rather than go to all the bother of booting into safe mode, running a system restore, losing any other changes you may have made since the restore point was created and not actually learning anything along the way?

    No matter - at least you got the problem sorted.

    True, the reason I suggested it was because the user has deleted "some files" which could be virtually anything. At least with the sys restore the user can start over again. 8)
