error code

Hi to all,

When i reboot/start up my computer i get the following error code:

CorUpd.exe application error

The instruction at "0x77e7a67a" referenced memory at "0x0042c04c". The memory could not be "written".

How can this be fixed?

Thank you, nabcom.

Re: error code

The only reference to 'CorUpd.exe' I could find relates to an Y2K update package (Windows 95 Corporate Year 2000 Companion Update). What machine and OS is this? Why do you feel it is modem related?

Re: error code

Hello again,

Im running XP home on Deminsion 2400. Ive had my box about 8 weeks.

I say its the modem because i havnet loaded anything new or uninstalled anything since i got my box.

Re: error code

Further investigation.. It may be related to a Corel app, but more likely seems to be caused by DirectCD. If you have DirectCD running at startup, try disabling it.

You might want to move this question over to Dimension Software - Other, as I don't think it has anything to do with the modem.

Re: error code

I also saw one comment indicating it may be related to power management settings. You might want to try changing those. What you're seeing does seem to be a recognized problem, as there is much discussion (but no definative solutions) on the microsoft newsgroups.

Re: error code

Sorry sooooooo late in getting back. It was a business thing. The problem was fixed by changing the "search for updates" from "never" to every 30 days. "Never" is not recommended and i found out why. You see i dont allow any automatic updates to anything. Well in this instance you must or you get the above error code. So now i have 1 exception to my rule.

Thanks to all who offered their advice/suggestions!
