Hi everybody.
I have a Dell inspiron xps gen2. I have been getting this error message for over 4 months. [svchost.exe- Application error (the instruction at "0x00ab96bc" referenced memory at"0x00000000". the memory could not be written.)]
this message comes up when i try to access my computer.
I have reinstalled windows neumrous time with long format, checked for viruses with norton in safe mode. I connect to the internet through a netgear wireless router.
if ones can help me with this i would really appreciate it.

thanks for taking your time to read my message, have a great day. :confused:

Well usually when I get an error like that, it is because one program is using the same memory address as another. So basically to figure out what the problem is, you just shut off services that are non-essential and then check My Computer. If you get the error then that was not the program causing it, but if you don't then I would try to update the program or uninstall it. The other thing that I have seen work once, was swapping out memory. Not exactly positive how that worked but it did.

Your Dell should have come with a Drivers and Utilities CD. Boot up with that CD and run the diagnostics utility. It will test your hardware.

Select a custom test. Then go in and select to test the RAM.

If it is a hardware problem, note the error it gives. Call Dell tech support and have them replace the part.

Hope that helps.

Thanks guys, i have tried disabling services from msconfig, NO change still getting that error message. Also ran diagnostic for the RAM and no problems with it. I don't know it's not really working.
I have been talking to tech support about this problem for 4 months already, and they couldn't figure it out.
Any other suggestions Guys thanks.
I appreciate your help curiousgeorge & acruth7284.

Thanks alot:)

You probably have a bad driver that would not have been checked pre-sp2.  I am assuming that you are running XP if not ignore the following. You can disable the error back to pre-SP2 operation but you will have to watch things carefully.

Right click on my computer and open properties.  
open the advanced tab.
click performance settings button.
open the Data Execution Prevention tab.
select turn on DEP for all except what I select:
click Add
Browse to your windows root folder\system32\svchost.exe.
Pay attention to the finger wagging about you may have Fcskup big time and say ok.
After a few seconds the list will probably give you a check box with Generic Host Process for win32 services.
Apply/ok  and reboot system.  Your error will go away and system will handle it pre-service pack 2 methods.  That means you will rely on your antivirus to grab baddies named svchost.exe,  These normally execute from a folder other than system32 so they are easier to find.  If your driver is really bad it will be BSOD time but generally it is some type of memory leak that may run for days with no problem

I have the same error, and this works for me, but "my computer" goes extremely slow, every time I open it I see the search-icon way too long, and when I click the adressbar it also takes a long time before something happens. Is there a real solution?

My problem is solved!

Alas: I don't know what exactly did the trick. The last thing I did was installing vbrun60 and some free backupsoftware http://www.karenware.com .

I also had to reset my networkprinter, router and cable modem, so maybe I've been attacked? On the other hand the other computers in my network didn't show this problem.

Spybot, ad-aware and AntiVir, http://www.free-av.com , did not find anything unusual in this machine.

I tried a systemrestore to restore the error, but it didn't show up, my computer opens in the blink of an eye!

Sorry about this.

I found the answer too.  Disable DEP in the boot.ini file.  change /noexecute=optin to /noexecute=AlwaysOff.

I have disabled svchost  from DEP, but other processor errors came up like, "s24evmon.exe error" & "navapsvc.exe error" the error messages looks so much like the svchost error one, but i have only seen them once. Also I feel like my system isn't functioning as it should be though i have pretty good system.

one question to Bsiegler ( how were you able to post your running processes on here? Thanks

Thanks for all of the help
