Hi,

I suspect that my 32 bit Vista has a virus. I received the following message:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut own to prevent damage to your computor. Memory_Management. Tech Info: *** STOP: 0X0000001A (0X00041790, 0XC0801058, 0X0000FFFF, 0X00000000).

I have AVG anti virus software but my system usually shuts down when th AVG software update initiates.

Can you recommend the remeding anti-virus software?

Thank you

This is almost always due to corrupted physical RAM.

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Roadkil's RAM Test
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
Memtest86

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.
