I dont know the exact error but every once in awhile I get a "Memory cannot
be referenced at "Address"" error. Is this a problem with my memory or a
problem with the pointer in the application? Ive run memory tests and
nothing ever comes back with a problem.

How much is installed,then what are you doing or running on the os with
what you have.512mb of memory might work ok for some,then again 1024mb
wont work with others.If the memory amount is justified,then try,R.click on
my computer,properties,advanced,performance,virtual memory,change button,
set to:let windows manage Then click set 2X,close out.The os uses ram
memory,
and virtual memory,if the 1st is ok,the 2nd maybe the memory error.

Usually these are programming errors, such as reading a value from a
location that had not been initialized or previously written to.
